Transcript of Agri

Agricultural Biotechnology
People have been using plant fibers (cotton, silk, etc.) to make every-day use items.
Scientists have been able to make new variations of natural fibers through biotechnology.
Modern man-made artificial and synthetic fibers.
Methods
injection into ovum
injecting stem cells into embryos
History

Evolution of Corn
Teosinte Maize Parent
Transgenic Animal and Plants
Purpose:
desirable gene
disease resistance
reproductive performance
Isolation and insertion ( selective characteristics)
construct different
Appearance
resistance
Careers in Agricultural Biotechnology Industry
Agricultural and food science technician
Agricultural Biotechnologist
Agricultural biotechnologists are professionals who provide a set of tools, which, if incorporated suitably with other technologies, can be used for the sustainable development of agriculture and the food industry as a whole.
work with agricultural and food scientists to monitor food production and food safety
develop protocols to store crop and animal samples, operate farm equipment
maintain agricultural production areas, examine animals to determine the presence of diseases or other problems
Products: Agricultural biotech seeds, Plant biotechnology traits, Crop protection chemicals,

Key Concept: Aquaculture and Marine Biotechnology
Aqua-farming

Study of how ocean and organisms can help us
Key Concept: Pharmaceuticals in
genetically engineered plant crops

Through genetic engineering they are tying to produce active proteins.
mammalian antibodies, blood product substitutes, vaccines, hormones, cytokines, and a variety of other therapeutic agents.
Find a suitable host plant and a gene expression system
a food crop or a non-food crop can be appropriate
Also they use to it increase production in food products
Increases in size and quantity

Biotechnology crops are crop that have genetically engineered
Biotech breeder are enchaining these crops to help produce more gains and a higher protein source
Crops produce by biotechnologist are approved by the FDA to consume by humans and animal
