Bio-nanotechnology vs Nano-biotechnology

Nanobiotechnology vs Bionanotechnology

Introduction

They are certainly two different things. As a biotechnologist, it is utmost important to understand the narrow difference between these terms. Nanobiotechnology and Bio-nanotechnology are different. These are the branches of biotechnology and biology involving the nano particle for human use. they are using engineering technique including chemical, material, physical and biological sciences.

One thing is common in both the Branches Nano particle. Nano particle: Ultrafine particle , very small microscopic, tiny particle called nanoparticle. In nanotechnology, a particle is defined as a small object that behaves as a whole unit with respect to its transport and properties. Particles are further classified according to diameter. Ultrafine particles, or nanoparticles, are between 1 and 100 nanometers in size. Nanoparticles are basicly microscopic particles. Nanotechnology is the technology used to manipulate these nonoparticles for human use.

Bionanotechnology, nanobiotechnology, and nanobiology are terms that refer to the intersection of nanotechnology and biology. Below details find useful to distinguish between the Nano-biotechnology and Bio-nanotechnology


Bio-nanotechnology (1)

In bio-nanotechnology, we learn from natural biosystems to develop similar nanomaterials. In other words, roughly, it is the application of biotechnology in nanotechnology. Example, developing nanomotors inspired from ATP-synthase protein.

On the other hand, nano-biotechnology is the use of nanomaterials in biotechnological applications. Use of gold, silver nanoparticles in microbiology, medicine and diagnostics and such applications could actually revolutionize the field of biotechnology by allowing the early diagnosis of disease, the on-line monitoring of therapeutic procedures. Read more online to get deeper distinctions, these are preliminary.


Bio-nanotechnology (2)

It is a fusion of biology and nanotechnology based on the principles and chemical pathways of living organisms, and refers to the functional applications of biomolecules in nanotechnology. It encompasses the study, creation, and illumination of the connections between structural molecular biology, nutrition and nanotechnology, since the development of techniques of nanotechnology might be guided by studying the structure and function of the natural nano-molecules found in living cells. Biology offers a window into the most sophisticated collection of functional nanostructures that exists.
Bionanotechnology involves the fields : :
• Nanotechnology in nutrition and medicine
• Nanotechnology, health and food technology applications
• Nanotechnology and other versatile applications
• Nanomaterial manufacturing
• Applications of microscopy in nano particles.



Nanobiotechnology

Refers to the ways that nanotechnology is used to create devices to study biological systems. The imaging of native biomolecules, biological membranes, and tissues is also a major topic for the nanobiology and nanobiotechnology researchers
The possibility to exploit the structures and processes of biomolecules for novel functional materials, biosensors, bioelectronics and medical applications has created the rapidly growing field of Nanobiotechnology.

Nanobiotechnology is the contributions from bioorganic and bioinorganic chemistry, molecular biology, materials science and bioanalytics to fathom the full scope of current and future developments.
It is divided into four main sections:
* Interphase Systems
* Protein-based Nanostructures
* DNA-based Nanostructures
* Nanoanalytics
"This is for chemists, biologists and materials scientists who want to explore the fascinating world of nanobiotechnology.

Bisnes dalam Bioteknologi

Salam wbt.

Bisnes - satu bidang yang berlaku dalam setiap bidang apa pun, termasuklah bioteknologi, bisnes merupakan bidang penting bagi menjana keuntungan dalam bidang ini. Dalam Research and Development (R&D), bisnes merupakan peringkat terakhir setelah bidang penemuan dan pengkajian selesai.

Pada tahun ke-3 kami di Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, turut diajar subjek pengurusan dimana kami diajar bagaimana membuka perniagaan sendiri. Ini sangat penting bagi melatih otak berfikir diluar bidang sains, supaya suatu hari nanti setiap orang berpotensi untuk membuka bidang perniagaan sendiri, dan bukan setakat terlibat dalam akademik dan R&D sahaja.

Pada tahun ke-2 yang lalu, kami turut didedahkan dengan ilmu dalam bisnes dan komersial bagi bioteknologi. Antara tajuk yang diajar ialah Commersialising, Intellectual Property dan sebagainya. Dengan ini, maka dapatlah kami berfikir diluar bidang sains, at least satu subjek dalam setahun.

Bagaimana pula di Malaysia?

Wallahu'alam.

Sains dan Islam

Salam dan Selamat Sejahtera,

Jika kita merenung perkembangan sains, maka kita tidak boleh lari daripada melihat perkembangan alam - dimana perkembangan alam ini kaitannya sangat dekat lah dengan Maha Pencipta.

Perkembangan sains giat berlaku, begitu juga perkembangan alam. Yang pasti kedua2nya berada dalam rancangan Allah Yang Maha Satu. Jika difikirkan, ramai ahli bijak pandai dalam bidang sains yang mempengaruhi perkembangannya, namu pasti kita pelik kerana yang bijak pandai pun tak cukup pandai untuk mengaitkan hubungan sains dan Maha Pencipta.

http://widewallpapers.org/nature-wallpapers/green-nature-wallpaper/309/

Inilah yang dikatakan "awesome" bagi umat2 islam yang sedar akan perkaitan hubungan sains dan juga alam, di mana keduanya adalah ilham daripada Yang Maha Satu. Kita boleh kaitkan ini dengan bidang seni juga, dimana artis menggunakan sumber alam bagi meningkatkan rasa kesedaran diri tentang penciptaan alam, dan terus menyebabkan kita terasa kecilkan perkembangan sains yg nampaknya seperti gah berkembang, jika mahu dikaitkan dengan perkembangan alam yg telah berlaku sejak dahulu lagi.

Lagu Maher Zain berikut - Open Your Eyes nyata menunjukkan unsur2 alam yang membangkitkan rasa teruja dengan ciptaan semulajadi Yang Maha Satu.


Semoga bertemu di post akan datang, wassalam!

[MARKET BIOTECH] Malaysia Endeavors to Outsource Biotech Services from US

The dynamically growing US biotech market can emerge as an outsourcing hub. Malaysia, to make its mark on the global biotech market, is looking to attract biotech exports from US.

Biotechnology News Articles - NEW DELHI, INDIA, May 02, 2007 - Malaysia, in May 2007 at the BIO International Convention (BIO 2007), will look to pull biotechnology exports, particularly from US, to the nation.

The Biotechnology Industry Organisation (BIO) will organize the BIO 2007 scheduled to be held in Boston, Massachusetts, from May 6 to May 9, 2007.

Presently, BIO is a representative body for approx 1,100 biotech companies, state biotech centers, academic institutions, and other related organizations in all US states and 31 other countries.

Datuk Seri Dr Jamaludin Jarjis, Science, Technology and Innovation Minister, Malaysia, told on April 20, 2007 that his country would see this event as a global stage to attract the attention of the potential investors in the nation as a favorable export destination, as reported by BERNAMA.COM.

He further said at a press conference on the participation of Malaysia at BIO 2007, "There is flourishing interest from the West on outsourcing of the biotechnology sector to Asia. Malaysia is strategically located in Asia and we should make use of the interest to woo those involved to our country".

BIO members have their involvement in diverse fields, like agriculture, environmental, industrial, and healthcare biotech products.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak will lead the Malaysian delegation of 300 representatives at BIO 2007. The number of delegates has increased enormously this year as compared to 150 in previous year and 100 in 2005.

[PLANT BIOTECH] Ilmu Bioteknologi Tumbuhan Dalam Al-Quran

Seperti yang disebutkan dalam 'post' sebelum-sebelum ini, ilmu bioteknologi juga didapati dari dalam al-Quran. Selain berkenaan haiwan, terdapat juga ilmu dari al-Quran berkenaan biologi atau bioteknologi tumbuhan. Seperti ayat dibawah, Allah menceritakan bagaimana tanaman itu tumbuh dengan kuasanya, atas bantuan air dari hujan (juga mata air), ianya mengeluarkan warna yang pelbagai, juga jenis tanaman yang pelbagai. 

Tidakkah engkau memerhatikan, bahawa Allah menurunkan hujan dari langit, lalu dialirkanNya menjadi matair-matair di bumi; kemudian Ia menumbuhkan dengan air itu tanaman-tanaman yang berbagai jenis dan warnanya; kemudian tanaman-tanaman itu bergerak segar (hingga ke suatu masa yang tertentu), selepas itu engkau melihatmu berupa kuning; kemudian Ia menjadikannya hancur bersepai? Sesungguhnya segala yang tersebut itu mengandungi peringatan yang menyedarkan orang-orang yang berakal sempurna. 
[Surah Az-Zumar (39):21]

Idea ini mungkin boleh kita kaitkan dengan teori penemuan atau idea asal genetik oleh Gregory Mendel, dimana beliau menjalankan pemerhatian ke atas tumbuhan mengikut warna dan jenis yang berbeza-beza. Seterusnya Allah juga mengingatkan, di akhir ayat berikut, bahawasanya apa yang telah disebutkan mempunyai pelajaran bagi orang yang berfikir. Seperti kebanyakan ayat lain, khususnya yang berkenaan penciptaan alam, pasti Allah mengulang ayat tersebut; "Sesungguhnya segala yang tersebut itu mengandungi peringatan yang menyedarkan orang-orang yang berakal sempurna". Hal yang disebutkan adalah kerana, dalam setiap penciptaan Allah, tersirat 1001 rahsia berkenaan alam, dan oleh sebab itu, manusia harus selalu berfikir, khususnya mereka yang dibidang kajian, dan mungkin ini boleh dijadikan sebagai idea baru untuk menjalankan eksperimen. Sesungguhnya Allah maha bijaksana, dan maha pemurah terhadap hambanya. 

Wallahu'alam.
