A biosensor is an analytical device, used for the detection of an analyte, that combines a biological component with a physicochemical detector. The sensitive biological element (e.g. tissue, microorganisms, organelles, cell receptors, enzymes, antibodies, nucleic acids, etc.) is a biologically derived material or biomimetic component that interacts (binds or recognizes) with the analyte under study. The biologically sensitive elements can also be created by biological engineering. The transducer or the detector element (works in a physicochemical way; optical, piezoelectric, electrochemical, etc.) transforms the signal resulting from the interaction of the analyte with the biological element into another signal (i.e., transduces) that can be more easily measured and quantified.
Biorobotics is a term that loosely covers the fields of cybernetics, bionics and even genetic engineering as a collective study. Biorobotics is often used to refer to a real subfield of robotics: studying how to make robots that emulate or simulate living biological organisms mechanically or even chemically. The term is also used in a reverse definition: making biological organisms as manipulatable and functional as robots, or making biological organisms as components of robots. In the latter sense, biorobotics can be referred to as a theoretical discipline of comprehensive genetic engineering in which organisms are created and designed by artificial means. The creation of life from non-living matter for example, would be biorobotics. The field is in its infancy and is sometimes known as synthetic biology or bionanotechnology.
Biomarkers that are used in clinical trials include those that are used as study endpoints, as well as those that are merely exploratory biomarkers. Exploratory biomarkers are used with the goal of arriving at a suitable panel that can subsequently be tested and validated, for use as endpoint in future clinical trials.

Fermentation is the process involving the biochemical activity of organisms, during their growth, development, reproduction, even senescence and death. Fermentation technology is the use of organisms to produce food, pharmaceuticals and alcoholic beverages on a large scale industrial basis.
The basic principle involved in the industrial fermentation technology is that organisms are grown under suitable conditions, by providing raw materials meeting all the necessary requirements such as carbon, nitrogen, salts, trace elements and vitamins.
The end products formed as a result of their metabolism during their life span are released into the media, which are extracted for use by human being and that have a high commercial value. The major products of fermentation technology produced economically on a large scale industrial basis are wine, beer, cider, vinegar, ethanol, cheese, hormones, antibiotics, complete proteins, enzymes and other useful products.

Enzymes are the substances which are used to speed up the reaction, and enzyme production is the one of the main sector of industrial biotechnology. Due to the advancements in biotechnology, these are extracted from specific microorganisms by the process of fermentation, provided with favorable conditions. Microbial enzymes have gained interest for their widespread application in industries and medicines.
Drug discovery is the process through which potential new medicines are recognized and comprises an extensive range of scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry and pharmacology. The integration of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetic parameters in non-clinical pharmacology studies is a key characteristic in drug discovery for efficacy and safety assessment, in the particular for the translation from the non-clinical to clinical field and process of drug discovery include the identification of candidates, synthesis, characterization, screening, and assays for therapeutic efficacy where as modern drug discovery involves the identification of screening hits, medicinal chemistry and optimization of those hits to increase the affinity, selectivity, efficacy/potency, metabolic stability, and oral bioavailability. The "final product" of drug discovery is a patent on the potential drug.

Protein Engineering is one of the key tools for industrial biotechnology. Using a wild-type enzyme which is discovered in nature is not acceptable for an industrial process. It has to be engineered and optimized in terms of activity, selectivity, and stability. Some enzymes may have a high demand for industrial use, but due to its chemical properties it may loose its importance. Therefore these enzymes are modified so that it can withstand harsh conditions. These properties will comprise to maximize the yield.
Biochemistry is the branch of science that explores the chemical processes within and related to living organisms. It is a laboratory based science that brings together biology and chemistry. By using chemical knowledge and techniques, biochemists can understand and solve biological problems. Biochemistry focuses on processes happening at a molecular level. It focuses on what’s happening inside our cells, studying components like proteins, lipids and organelles. It also looks at how cells communicate with each other, for example during growth or fighting illness. Biochemists need to understand how the structure of a molecule relates to its function, allowing them to predict how molecules will interact.

A bio-based material is a material intentionally made from substances derived from living (or once-living) organisms. These materials are sometimes referred to as biomaterials, but this word also has another meaning. Strictly the definition could include many common materials such as wood and leather, but it typically refers to modern materials that have undergone more extensive processing. Unprocessed materials may be called biotic material. Bio-based materials or biomaterials fall under the broader category of bioproducts or bio-based products which includes materials, chemicals, and energy derived from renewable biological resources.
These are the polymers that are biodegradable. The raw materials used for the synthesis of bio polymers will be either renewable, i.e. based on plant or animal products. Bio polymers have several properties based on the material, e.g. barrier capacity. It is a renewable, greener and smart option to avoid usage of materials like polyethylene. In addition to this it plays a crucial role in managing the waste process.
Biosensors are used for the detection of biological analyte like enzyme, antibodies, cell receptors, organelles etc. The different types of biosensors with few modifications can be used to for the detection of glucose level in body, microbial invasion in body and food, heavy metals detection in soil, water and air-borne microbes, pesticides in water and soil and various harmful chemicals produced by body.

Bioinformatics has become an important part of many areas of biology. In experimental molecular biology, bioinformatics techniques such as image and signal processing allow extraction of useful results from large amounts of raw data. In the field of genetics and genomics, it aids in sequencing and annotating genomes and their observed mutations. It plays a role in the text mining of biological literature and the development of biological and gene ontologies to organize and query biological data. It also plays a role in the analysis of gene and protein expression and regulation. Bioinformatics tools aid in the comparison of genetic and genomic data and more generally in the understanding of evolutionary aspects of molecular biology.
Systems biology is the computational and mathematical modeling of complex biological systems. It is a biology-based interdisciplinary field of study that focuses on complex interactions within biological systems, using a holistic approach (holism instead of the more traditional reductionism) to biological research.
In order to improve the diagnosis, prediction, and treatment of complex medical diseases a process is developed known as computational biomedicine. Computational biomedicine is the name given to the use of computer-based tools and approaches to simulate and model the human body in health and disease. In the European Union, this new science has become synonymous with the concept of the virtual physiological human (VPH). More specifically, however, the name VPH is given to an ambitious initiative, funded through Framework Seven but building on work funded through earlier frameworks and external initiatives

Industrial biotechnology is a set of practices that use living cells (such as bacteria, yeast, algae) or component of cells like enzymes, to generate industrial products and processes. Industrial biotechnology can be used to: Create new products, such as plant-based biodegradable plastics; Replace petroleum-based feedstock’s by processing biomass in bio refineries to produce electricity, transport fuels or chemicals; Modify and develop new industrial processes, such as by using enzymes to reduce the amount of harsh chemicals used the textile or pulp and paper industries; Reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing; for example by treating industrial wastewater onsite using biological mediums such as microbes; Industrial biotechnology is one of the most promising new approaches to pollution prevention, resource conservation, and cost reduction. It is often referred to as the third wave in biotechnology. If developed to its full potential, industrial biotechnology may have a larger impact on the world than health care and agricultural biotechnology. It offers businesses a way to reduce costs and create new markets while protecting the environment. Also, since many of its products do not require the lengthy review times that drug products must undergo, it's a quicker, easier pathway to the market. Today, new industrial processes can be taken from lab study to commercial application in two to five years, compared to up to a decade for drugs.

The world of animal medicine has witnessed drastic technological advances in the last 20 years. Many of the new procedures and tools have been adopted from human medical practice. The advances have not only led to better treatments, but also faster and accurate diagnosis. From Ultrasounds and MRIs to the Amplatz Canine Ductal Occluder, there are many new technologies that furnish veterinarians with the ability to diagnose and ultimately save sick animals. MRI technology has been extremely instrumental in the advancement of human neuroscience. Vets are now using the imaging technology peek into the brains of pets and wild animals. On the other hand, ultrasounds have the advantage of not requiring anesthesia and comparatively cheap to perform. Laparoscopic procedures use a small camera and light source that can be incorporated into the abdominal or thoracic cavity for a peek inside the body. This is yet another example of adaptation of human medicine technology to the animal kingdom. With the development of new veterinary technology comes the necessity for those with specialized training. Veterinary technology promises a rewarding career for anyone who has a passion for animals
Marine biotechnology, sometimes referred to as “blue biotechnology”, exploits the diversity found in marine environments in terms of the form, structure, physiology and chemistry of marine organisms, many of which have no equivalenton land, in ways which enable new materials to be realised. Marine Biotechnology that involve marine bioresources, either as the source or the target of biotechnology applications. In many cases this means that the living organisms which are used to develop products or services are derived from marine sources. At the same time, if terrestrial organisms are used to develop a biosensor which is used in the marine environment to assess the ecosystem health then it also falls within the sphere of Marine Biotechnology.

Synthetic biotechnology involves the manipulation of biological compounds like integration of synthetic aminoacids into proteins, DNA synthesis and manipulation using synthetic sequences, oligonucleotide synthesis, protein modification using synthetic compounds etc. the compounds produced synthetically are orthogonally integrated into cells which are chosen to provide suitable experimental strategy.
Synthetic biology represents a convergence of advances in chemistry, biology, computer science, and engineering. systematic methods for increasing the speed, scale, and precision with which we engineer biological systems. In a sense, synthetic biology can be thought of as the development of a biology-based “toolkit” that enables improved products across many industries, including medicine, energy and the environment.The manipulations in the wild type system by the engineered systems are studied varying their efficiency.
Biotechnology is defined as the application of the life sciences to chemical synthesis. It discusses its increasingly important role in the directproduction of speciality chemicals via fermentation, such as citric acid, lactic acid, propane-1,3-diol and some amino acids.
Other uses of biotechnology are, for example the production of biofuels(bioethanol and biodiesel), the production of basic feedstocks such as synthesis gas (carbon monoxide and hydrogen) from biomass and the production of biodegradable polymers such as the poly(hydroxyalkanoates).

Biomanufacturing is a type of manufacturing or biotechnology that utilizes biological systems to produce commercially important biomaterials and biomolecules for use in medicines, food and beverage processing, and industrial applications. Biomanufacturing products are recovered from natural sources, such as blood, or from cultures of microbes, animal cells, or plant cells grown in specialized equipment. The cells used during the production may have been naturally occurring or derived using genetic engineering techniques.
Biorefining is the efficient processing of biomass into a wide range of marketable products and energy. By means of co-producing relatively (high) value chemicals (e.g. fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, polymers) the production costs of secondary energy carriers potentially could become market competitors, especially when biorefining is integrated into the existing chemical, material and power industries. Industrial biorefineries have been identified as the novel route to the creation of a new domestic biobased industry. By producing multiple products; a biorefinery can take advantage of the differences in biomass components and intermediates and maximize the value derived from the biomass feedstock.
Advanced biofuels are fuels that can be processed from numerous types of biomass. First generation biofuels are processed from the sugars and vegetable oils formed in arable crops, which can be smoothly extracted applying conventional technology. In comparison, advanced biofuels are made from lignocellulosic biomass or woody crops, agricultural residues or waste, which makes it tougher to extract the requisite fuel. Advanced biofuel technologies have been devised because first generation biofuels manufacture has major limitations. First generation biofuel processes are convenient but restrained in most cases:
