Genomics in drug discovery (substitues for pharmaceuticals)

Cell Biotechnology applies scientific knowledge about cell structure and function in order to use those cells or their activities and products, usually in large-scale applications.

Plants are unique among the eukaryotes, organisms whose cells have membrane-enclosed nuclei and organelles, because they can manufacture their own food. Chlorophyll, which gives plants their green color, enables them to use sunlight to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars and carbohydrates, chemicals the cell uses for fuel.

Plants are the basis of all life on Earth, whether as components of natural ecosystems or as domesticated crops used for food, feed and materials

Plants cells produce a wide range of secondary metabolites, many of which are economically important fine chemicals such as drugs, flavours and fragrances, dyes, antioxidants or insecticides. A new approach is expressing microbial genes in plants for producing new compounds, or give them a new function to metabolise polutants from the environment.

The goal of this scientific challenge, involving an interdisciplinary effort by engineers, plant biologists, plant pathologists, chemists, physicists and computer scientists, is to apply the knowledge of how plants respond to their dynamic environment toward manipulation of crop plants safely and efficiently for better and more sustainable production
