These enzymes are widely used in numerous biotechnological processes and have applications in cosmetic, detergent, food, pharmaceutical industries and leather (Rajeshkumar, Mahendran et al. 2013). Lipases form an essential part of the industries range from dairy, agrochemical and detergents to oleo-chemicals, tea industries, and in numerous bioremediation processes. The potential for marketable utilization of a microbial lipase is firm by its yield, stability, activity, and other distinctiveness (Shu, Jiang et al. 2010).
The fungus can occur on a variety of grasses. It produces small hard structures, known as sclerotia. These sclerotia can cause poisoning in humans and animals which have eaten infected material. However, these same sclerotia are also the source of a powerful and important drug which has uses in childbirth. Biocontrolwpe2F.jpg (3407 bytes) Fungi such as the Chinese caterpillar fungus, which parasitise insects, can be extremely useful for controlling insect pests of crops.
Fungi who are in symbiotic association with a host plant can either be facultative symbionts, which means they are either free-living saprotrophs or live within the plant. Other Fungi are obligate symbionts and they grow exclusively in association with living plants (The Fungi, Carlile et. al). Central to the carbon economy is mutualism, which is a symbiotic relationship in which both the fungus (e.g.

It is also a great way to spend wholesome, quality time with your family. In conclusion, there are many alternatives rather than using GMO. There may be many positive impacts of genetically modified foods but there are way more negative, harmful side effects and consequences when creating, eating, or using gmo foods. Gmo’s do not only affect the health of the human population but it also affects nature around us.
Commonly known for causing diseases in humans, bacteria are also a valuable key in a healthy lifestyle and other aspects of life. From manufacturing Vitamin K to giving yogurt its tangy taste, bacteria come in many shapes, sizes and forms. Bacteria lack a well-defined nuclei and membrane-bound organelles, and with chromosomes containing a single closed circle of DNA, they are categorized as Prokaryotes. Each bacterial cell typically has the same structures that have a certain function within the cell. Within a Nucleoid DNA, RNA and some proteins are found.

The colonies found on media treated with both the live ampicillin sensitive and heat killed resistant bacteria generated colonies with one exception: The treatment which used DNAse. This treatment showed the same result as the ones without heat killed bacteria: no growth was observed indicating that transformation could not occur without DNA. In conclusion this confirms that DNA is the hereditary medium which can transform bacteria, as discovered by Avery in 1944. References Avery, O. T., MacLeod, C. M. & McCarty, M. (1944).
Their cell membranes are made with different material than bacteria. Just like bacteria, archaea are also single cell and are surrounded by a cell wall. Eukaryotes, unlike bacteria and archaea, contain a nucleus. And like bacteria and archaea, eukaryotes have a cell wall. The Gram stain is a system used to characterize bacteria based on the structural characteristics of their cell walls.
These companies are not only bringing local jobs and focusing on different sectors of the field but how are they helping our society from medical and environment perspective. I want to make the reader aware of different applications of biotechnology and the effects on the environment.

(Biosafety, 2005) Genetic engineering was found to be a changing of an organism. The first big success of genetic engineering was found to be the production of insulin which is a hormone which is produced by the human’s pancreas by something called genetically modified bacteria. Then today’s genetic engineering techniques are used in a lot of different areas. For example such as medicine, it can be sometime possible to reading DNA sequences and find out how some diseases occur. It can sometimes be possible to fight some infectious diseases or any form of disease by changing the DNA codons which cause most of these problems.
What are microorganisms? They are organisms that you have to view with a microscope. The three that I will be discussing are bacteria, viruses, and prions. Of the three, a bacterium is the only one that can be helpful to us in many situations, and they are also the most diverse organism on the earth. The structure, reproduction, and the diseases bacteria, viruses, and prion cause are all different.
