Importance and scope:
In the past, biotechnology concentrated on the production of food and medicine. It also tried to solve environmental problems. In the 21st century, industries linked to the fermentation technology had grown tremendously because of the high demand for various chemicals. The advancement in fermentation process by its interaction with chemicals.
Biotech has given rise to a new area—the bioprocess technology. Large-scale production of proteins and enzymes can be carried out by applying bioprocess technology in fermentation. Applying the principles of biology, chemistry, and engineering sciences, processes are developed to create large quantities of chemicals, antibiotics, proteins, and enzymes in an economical manner. Biotechnology includes media and buffer preparation, upstream processing and downstream processing. This has led to the division of biotechnology into different areas such as agricultural biotechnology, medical or pharmaceutical biotechnology, industrial biotechnology, and environmental biotechnology.

Allied Academies cordially invites all the participants across the globe from leading universities, clinical research institutions, diagnostic companies and all interested to share their research experiences in the “Annual Biotechnology Congress” during August 17-18, 2017 in Toronto, Canada with the theme of “New Scientific Developments in Biotechnology of Modern Era”.
Track 1: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Molecular biotechnology is the use of laboratory techniques to study and modify nucleic acids and proteins for applications in areas such as human and animal health, agriculture, and the environment. Molecular biotechnology results from the convergence of many areas of research, such as molecular biology, microbiology, biochemistry, immunology, genetics, and cell biology. It is an exciting field fueled by the ability to transfer genetic information between organisms with the goal of understanding important biological processes or creating a useful product.
The key drivers for molecular biology enzymes, kits, and reagents market are the rising R&D expenditure by the pharmaceutical and biotech companies, and increasing public funding for life science research. The World Health Organization estimates that the total aged population may rise from 605 million in 2000 (11% of the global population) to 2 billion by 2050, accounting for 22% of the global population.
Track 2: Animal biotechnology
It improves the food we eat - meat, milk, and eggs. Biotechnology can improve an animal’s impact on the environment. Animal biotechnology is the use of science and engineering to modify living organisms. The goal is to make products, to improve animals and to develop microorganisms for specific agricultural uses. It enhances the ability to detect, treat and prevent diseases, include creating transgenic animals (animals with one or more genes introduced by human intervention), using gene knockout the technology to make animals with a specifically inactivated gene and producing nearly identical animals by somatic cell nuclear transfer (or cloning).

Pharmaceutical Biotechnology is the science that covers all technologies required for producing, manufacturing and registration of biological drugs. Pharmaceutical Biotechnology is an increasingly important area of science and technology. It contributes to design and delivery of new therapeutic drugs, diagnostic agents for medical tests, and in gene therapy for correcting the medical symptoms of hereditary diseases. The Pharmaceutical Biotechnology is widely spread, ranging from many ethical issues to changes in healthcare practices and a significant contribution to the development of national economy. Biopharmaceuticals consist of large biological molecules which are proteins. They target the underlying mechanisms and pathways of a disease or ailment; it is a relatively young industry. They can deal with targets in humans that are not accessible with traditional medicines.

Track 8: Genetic Engineering and Molecular Biology
One kind of biotechnology is gene technology, sometimes called 'genetic engineering' or 'genetic modification', where the genetic material of living things is deliberately altered to enhance or remove a particular trait and allow the organism to perform new functions. Genes within a species can be modified, or genes can be moved from one species to another.
Tissue engineering is emerging as a significant potential alternative or complementary solution, whereby tissue and organ failure is addressed by implanting natural, synthetic, or semisynthetic tissue and organ mimics that are fully functional from the start, or that grow into the required functionality. Initial efforts have focused on skin equivalents for treating burns, but an increasing number of tissue types are now being engineered, as well as biomaterials and scaffolds used as delivery systems. A variety of approaches is used to coax differentiated or undifferentiated cells, such as stem cells, into the desired cell type. Notable results include tissue-engineered bone, blood vessels, liver, muscle, and even nerve conduits. As a result of the medical and market potential, there is significant academic and corporate interest in this technology.

Every new business needs some startup capital, for research, product development and production, permits and licensing and other overhead costs, in addition to what is needed to pay your staff, if you have any. Biotechnology products arise from successful biotech companies. These companies are built by talented individuals in possession of a scientific breakthrough that is translated into a product or service idea, which is ultimately brought into commercialization. At the heart of this effort is the biotech entrepreneur, who forms the company with a vision they believe will benefit the lives and health of countless individuals. Entrepreneurs start biotechnology companies for various reasons, but creating revolutionary products and tools that impact the lives of potentially millions of people is one of the fundamental reasons why all entrepreneurs start biotechnology companies.

Biotechnology in Canada:
As per National Household Survey information, in 2015 natural technologists and specialists worked in various ventures. Around 36% worked in expert, logical and specialised administrations, principally in logical innovative work administrations (15%), 23% out in the open organisation and 17% in the assembling area, particularly in substance producing (10%) and in sustenance fabricating (5%). A huge number additionally worked and in instructive administrations labs and research offices (7%) and in horticulture (6%).
Since 2010, the high estimation of the Canadian dollar has come about not just in a slower increment in the genuine esteem (after expansion) of fares, yet it has likewise prompted to a sharp increment in the genuine estimation of imports. Thus, the development in the local request has been focused for the most part on imports, their genuine esteem having developed by more than 65% somewhere around 20012 and 2015, while the genuine estimation of residential generation has expanded by just 6%.
Throughout the following quite a long while, the estimation of the Canadian dollar ought to stay high. It is hence expected that the development in the local request will profit neighbourhood industry to a more noteworthy degree. Thus, generation and work in this industry are relied upon to increment somewhat over the coming years.
