(1 Ratings)
The wide concept of"biotechnology" encompasses a wide range of procedures for modifying living organisms according to human purposes, going back to domestication of animals, cultivation of... More > the plants, and "improvements" to these through breeding programs that employ artificial selection and hybridization. Modern usage also includes genetic engineering ,cell and tissue culture technologies. The American Chemical Society defines biotechnology as the application of biological organisms, systems, or processes by various industries to learning about the science of life and organisms. Eur.Fed. of Biot. stated that biotechnology is the integration of natural science and organisms, cells, parts thereof, and molecular analogues for products and services.Biotechnology also writes on the pure biological sciences (animal cell culture, biochemistry, cell biology, embryology, genetics, microbiology, and molecular biology). In many instances, it is also dependent on knowledge and methods from outside the sphere of biology.< Less

More > envisioned to be available for the next 20 years and described through an essay the design process, the breakthroughs and the consequences of the future technology that they designed.” Students in Microbiology worked over the course of a marking period to develop research proposals. In their proposals they needed to introduce, propose, and justify an initiative (ex. Creating an educational awareness campaign) or research study (ex. Gaining further insight on disease pathogenesis) to address one of the many neglected tropical diseases. These include diseases such as Rabies, Leprosy, Lymphatic Filariasis (aka Elephantiasis), and Trachoma. Dengue Virus, Yaws, Chagas, and Schistosomiasis are featured in this issue.< Less

Parasitology for Medical,Health and Science Students By Ali H Altimimi
eBook (PDF): $399.99
Medical parasitology traditionally has included the study of three major groups of animals: parasitic protozoa, parasitic helminths (worms), and those arthropods that directly cause disease or act as... More > vectors of various pathogens. A parasite is a pathogen that simultaneously injures and derives sustenance from its host. Some organisms called parasites are actually commensals, in that they neither benefit nor harm their host (for example, Entamoeba coli). Although parasitology had its origins in the zoologic sciences, it is today an interdisciplinary field, greatly influenced by microbiology, immunology, biochemistry, and other life sciences.The book has been divided into four sections. The first is an introductory section describing the terminology and general principles of parasitological studies. Then there are two sections: Protozoology and Helminthology. In each section the parasites of man have been classified and described under the following headings.< Less
