Biology and technology today are the most developed sector. Serving for the betterment of the people and improving new techniques and development. Steve Jobes predicted biggest development of 21st century will be intersection of biology and technology. This the fact that biology and technology both together have made miracles and helped to improve the life at a better level. Here are some of the great developments in biology and technology.
1) Precision medicine:
It is an approach that integrates clinical and molecular formula to understand the nature of diseases at gene level. Some people have generic disorder like Anti Anxiety drug, Anti depressant , which is difficult to study. But this is possible by genome sequencing. The information can be obtained by converting DNA into data to study at what level the diseases is. This study helps to study at which gene is affected or what is the gene sequence of DNA. This can help to understand specific gene abnormalities, to understand which drug will be effective. Than accordingly medicines can be prescribed in proper dose and for proper time. There are even therapies given to improve this abnormalities.
2) mHealth sensor:
There are apps available on the phones to track the movements of the people. There are large number of people participating in this. The more people who contribute their data, the bigger the number, the truer the representation of population, and the more powerful results, so a mHealth app has the potential to engage many people in large area. There are cell phones which have app to target diseases such as Parkinson’s diseases, asthma, diabetes, Pain,Anxiety heart disorders, some types of cancer. This is developed by research institutes.
3) 3D printing:
New technique developed is 3D printing on oral medicines i.e. pills. The epilepsy drug Spritam is the first 3D printed drug approved by FDA. The manufacture of this drug told that oral medication with 3D printing spreads layer of the drug on top with the right dose is reached. This technique helps the drug to deliver maximum dose of the drug. It is easy to dissolve quickly. This is beneficial for the patients who have problem in swallowing. This problem is solved with maximum benefit to the body.
Nanotechnology refers to microscopic technology that is of the scale from 1 to 100 nanometers. It is the engineering of functional system at molecular scale. This covers both current work and concept that are more advanced. In its original sense, nanotechnology refers to the project ability to construct items from the bottom up, using techniques and tools being developed today to make complete, high performance product. It is most beneficial in cellular biology to develop and help the way to cure different problems at microscopic level.
