Biotechnology is an emerging sector seeking development in the diverse areas of Tissue Engineering, Microfluidics, Biomedicine, BioMEMS, Biosensors, Pharmaceutical, Bioprocess Technologies and Nanotechnology.

Biotech is the latest sunrise sector. Analysts feel that biotech industry may surpass IT and ITeS in overall growth and employment generation, Forex earnings, patent registration, etc. India is considered as one of the hottest biotech destinations. Several people across the world believe that India will be able to produce companies of highest calibre in the future.

India's skill and capabilities in biotech is well recognized. But rapid growth of the industry will ultimately depend on availability of quality manpower and good educational institutions in the country. Dayananda Sagar College of Biological Sciences situated in the country's BT capital, Bangalore is one of the best institutes for not only offering higher education in biotechnology but also to be able to give hands-on experience and training using advanced equipments & instruments.


Earthworms are used to abate water pollution due to distillery units and convert it along with solid wastes from other industries to produce useable bio fertilizers. Ideally 100 tonnes of vermi-compost could be produced by 6,000 earthworms into an acre of land where the effluents could be let out with 20% other vegetative wastes. This is an eco friendly, energy saving method that carries the additional promise of yielding manure that is 30% more efficacious than the vegetative vermi-compost. The earthworms fed on distillery wastes on being isolated from soil, also constitute ideal fishmeal or feed for poultry or piggery and contribute to development of proteins for human consumption.
