Biotechnology Applications, Inc.
Biotechnology Applications, Inc. was created to seek out and promote the development of biotechnology applications exploring radically novel systems intending to alter the genetic properties of organisms in a fully controlled manner. Initial applications of genetic modification were mainly geared towards diagnostics, new vaccines and pharmaceuticals, in vitro fertilization for the creation of embryos, and the development and use of growth hormones. At present, with recent advances in genetic science, favorable results of genetic modification are presently being reported in areas such as the development of transgenic plants for the production of therapeutic proteins and medicines and even the production of edible vaccines. It is clear that innovations in biotechnology will have huge potential impacts. Research in the biological sciences is moving forward rapidly, and the results not only affect a broad array of sectors, but also enable links among them.
