Biotechnology

+ 200 buzzes
At its simplest, biotechnology is technology based on biology - biotechnology harnesses cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet. We have used the biological processes of microorganisms for more than 6,000 years to make useful food products, such as bread and cheese, and to preserve dairy products.

    Colombia's Ministry of Health (MoH) has one of the fastest regulatory approval times in Latin America: 30 days. Colombia's clinical trial regulatory agency —INVIMA (Instituto Nacional de Vigilancia de Medicamentos y Alimentos)— is a dependency of Colombia's MoH. The site's Institutional Review Board (IRB)/ethics committee and INVIMA must evaluate and approve all research on human beings in Colombia. Both the IRB and INVIMA will evaluate the study protocol, the investigator's brochure, the patient informed consent form (ICF), the case report form (CRF), all information about the investigational product (e.g., biocompatibility tests, reports of unexpected adverse events), an insurance policy, and all advertising material planned to recruit patients. You must also apply for an import permit at VUCE (Ventanilla Única de Comercio Exterior) —an office within Colombia's Ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Tourism (MinCIT).

    #30 Sorry for the belated reply, @Ali Anani. Topics like these intrigue me the most. As you said, the concept of honeycomb structures extends into different domains. The latest find in astronomy shows that universe has a structure which resembles a honeycomb - superclusters of galaxies linked together in a cosmic web.
    In one of your comments you asked how cockroaches, human cell membranes, bees or even bamboo plant determine that the honeycomb structure is ideal for their growth.
    We could ask a similar question about universe and the “forces” that attract galaxies into honeycomb pattern. Does the pattern simply represent the nature’s tendency to create the efficient hexagonal close-packing structures, such as a honeycomb? Is this “propensity” embedded into the very laws of nature?
    Some questions are simply unanswerable.

    #33 Great and challenging questions @Aaron Skogen. Yu open my mind to thousand of more questions. The key question is can an imitator be a creator? The first one was not surely an imitator? More puzzling questions are creeping in my head.

    Very interesting and thought provoking @Ali Anani.

    From the first, are the rest epigonic? Or, is each an archetype it's own?

    Ultimately, life finds a way. . .

    #22 Your answer is prompt dear @Tausif Mundrawala and reflects your good knowledge. My main question is how did cockroaches, human cell membranes, bees and cockroaches and other examples determined all that the honeycomb structure is ideal for their growth. Even plants such as bamboo have this structure. How did they all realize this fact? Not only that, but also did they reveal their secrets to each other? Did bamboo have a "silent communication" with bees, for example? These are the questions that prompted me to write this buzz dear Tausif.
    Tausif Mundrawala
    07/03/2017 #22 Tausif Mundrawala
    This buzz is like uncoding the cipher. Anyways lets try unleashing this mystery. According to me this honeycomb like geometrical structure allows minimum usage of material and maximizing the strength. It allows the plant or trees to reach maximum height as the arranged geometrical structure allows them to do so without creating any hindrance to their growth. Their growth allows this structure to expand in an evenly manner where every grid works and allows another grid to be accommodated. Then it spreads accordingly and stretches the more they could.

    I hope I answered your query, Sir @Ali Anani. Please let me know. Awaiting your reply.
