About The Company
Later part of the bygone twentieth century has witnessed a major revolution in the field of life-sciences. Researches carried out during this period, particularly in the area of molecular biology and recombinant technology, have led to emergence of 'Biotechnology' with a new face. Plants, animals and microorganisms being a key component of our ecosystem have always remained at centre-stage of research for different purposes as they affect the human life.
Development of culture methods, better understanding about molecular biology, discovery of restriction endonucleases and their use in mapping of DNA laid the foundation stone for modern day biotechnology. Isolation of thermostable DNA polymerase along with the development of PCR technique made cloning simplified and providing way for rec-DNA technology. Further developments were generation of bar-code like DNA fragment patterns of genomic DNA. These patterns appeared useful in distinguishing individuals based on DNA sequence variations among them.
Such variations of DNA among organisms were termed as fingerprints or profiles which provide a versatile tool to characterize genetic variability, genome evolution, population genetics, taxonomy, breeding and diagnostics even today! The technology to read the DNA base-by-base made it possible to identify useful genes. This information which could be cloned in suitable vectors and introduced in appropriate hosts through a variety of gene transfer methods gave an impetus to genetic improvement programmes and production of Genetically modified organisms.
Today the genomic sequencing is contributing to identify the basis of pathology, providing tailored therapies. We are quickly advancing towards the in situ engineering of the genomic information to achieve designer humanity.
