Frugal Innovation in Medical Technology

Frugal Innovation in Medical Technology | Biotech Article Collection | Scoop.it

For those of you following medical innovation in the developing world, the article earlier this year in The Econmist was quite informative. Here’s the link to the article. This was a good follow-up by The Economist to their more industry agnostic Frugal Innovation article from last year. Wanted to share some of my observations on frugal innovation particularly as it relates to India and medical technology.

Applications of biotechnology in olive - Cançado &al (2013) - Afr J Biotechnol

Many scientific and technological fields make use of biotechnology. Among the most important applications of biotechnology in agriculture are large-scale commercial micropropagation, genetic transformation and the development of transgenic varieties, embryo rescue in plant breeding programs, genotyping based on DNA markers, studies of genetic evolution and diversity, and genome sequencing.

 

These myriad applications of modern biotechnology and molecular biology are being applied to the olive tree, a crop cultivated for thousands of years in many places of the world and whose products are consumed globally. The selection and development of olive cultivars by conventional breeding methods is costly and time consuming, therefore, the application of biotechnology procedures and techniques, such as in vitro cultivation, molecular markers, and genomic and genetic transformation in this species may facilitate the improvement of important traits of this crop, such as biotic and abiotic resistance and tolerance, yield performance and oil quality... 

 

The aim of this review was to present the state of the art of the applications of biotechnology and molecular biology to the olive tree, as the consumption of olive products is growing due to their health benefits and excellent gastronomic and organoleptic qualities. For that reason, the commercial cultivation of olive is being encouraged by agroindustry and organized sectors of agriculture, such as cooperatives and farmer associations, stimulating the introduction and fast expansion of olive orchards in several areas of the world. In Brazil, practically all olive oil and other olive products that are domestically consumed are still being imported from other countries, but this scenario has changed rapidly in recent years.

 

To stimulate an increase in the sustainability and economic efficiency of olive production in countries in which this crop is not traditionally cultivated, ... it is necessary to develop local varieties that are better adapted to specific environments. In addition, economic and environmental efficiency will also be improved by delivering technologies that are suited to each environment and present innovative solutions not only for olive breeding but also for soil and irrigation management, pruning and harvesting methods, plantlet production, and post-harvest and fruit processing, among other issues associated with the cultivation of this crop...

 

Modern biotechnologies, such as in vitro micropropagation, cloning via somatic embryogenesis, molecular marker-assisted selection, functional genomics and genetic transformation, are good examples of how adopting correct technological approaches can benefit the commercial, environmental and social aspects of the growth of plants such as olive trees.

Realizing the promise of biotechnology: Infrastructural-icons in synthetic biology

by

Adrian MackenzieThat part of synthetic biology concerned with engineering promises to make good on the potential of biotechnology to address problems of food, energy, health and environment. How do the synthetic biologistsrealize the promise of biology as technology? In analysing realization of promise in synthetic biology, I suggest that we should pay close attention to different rates of realization. Synthetic biologists have consistently focused on making particular kinds of devices such as oscillators, timers and clock that both address problems of control over rates, and that themselves resemble and link to other rate-controlling mechanisms such as the many clocks found in large technical systems. They have also, again in those parts of the field concerned with engineering, expended much effort in developing infrastructures, techniques, methods and systems for rapid assembly of parts and components. The clocks and assembly methods function as both as iconic signs and as infrastructural elements or practices that will realise the promise of biotechnology. The field has not only produced what we might call infrastructural-icons for biology as technology, but almost defined itself in terms of a promise of realisation. In analysing how synthetic biology or any other technological endeavour shows how things could be (icons), and makes operational connections between things (infrastructures), the main goal is not to situate field in social or economic contexts. Rather, it is to open a way to see how synthetic biologists and others -- philosophers, social scientists, historians, artists, designers, scientists engineers, as students or consumers–manage to address the gaps that open up as the promise of biology as technology is realized at different rates.

DuPont Pioneer eyes biotech wheat as part of long-term growth - Reuters (2013)

DuPont is expanding its pipeline of new products under development to include the potential for a biotech wheat, a company official said on Tuesday. DuPont and its Pioneer Hi-Bred agricultural seed unit said a hybrid wheat technology project has been added to its roster of crop research programs that are advancing into deeper development... 

 

The company is looking at using biotechnology, along with other breeding tools to create wheat that is more disease resistant and also wheat that yields more and is hardy in drought conditions... The company is still at least a decade away from a commercialized new wheat... 

 

"The key thing is that we are looking for ways to grow our business in the long term. Wheat is one of the largest crops in the world. It's a staple food for about 35 percent of the world's population" ... he sees acceptance growing over time.

 

DuPont rival Monsanto... announced it was restarting wheat research in 2009.

Researchers in Australia, Dow AgroSciences, a unit of Dow Chemical, Syngenta, and others have said they are also researching genetic improvements for wheat.
