As learnt in

Principles -

Biotechnology deals in two principles -

1- Maintenance of microbial contamination free (sterile) surrounding in chemical engineering (old biotechnology).

Ex. production of ethanol by fermentation

2 - Genetic Engineering - It is also known as Recombinant DNA Technology or RDI.

 

- wherein

Only desired organism grow under sterile condition to produce large amount of desired product.

It is the asexual method of gene transfer across taxonomy boundary.

 

 and

1st Transgenic animal -

In 1982, 1st transgenic mice was obtained , in which human growth harmone (hGH) gene is fused with promoter of mouse metallothionein1(MT1) gene. 

- wherein

Transgenic animals are used either as a bioreactor to produce desired product or used to test before applied to human.
