The slower the pictures move, the better your ability of handling
stress. Alleged criminals that were tested see them spinning around
madly; however, senior citizens and small children see them
standing still. None of these images are animated
-

they are perfectly
static.

Microbes and Human Welfare

Decomposition of Organic Matter

Bioremediation
of Toxic
Wastes

Biological Controls

In quarantine tests, potential biological pests are confined in
small cages containing test plants sprayed with different
microbiological control agents.

Biotechnology

The application of biological knowledge and techniques
to develop products

A potential product from guano microorganisms is an enzyme called
chitinase, a protein capable of converting the chitin exoskeleton of insects
and crustaceans to simpler sugars. This, in turn, may be used for alcohol
fuel production. Another potential use for chitinase producing
microorganisms is the biological control of insect and nematode pests.


Genetic Engineering / Gene Therapy

Using bacteria of genus
Clostridium to selectively
penetrate cancer tumors
and deliver gene therapy to
shrink an kill the tumors.


In gene therapy, viruses are
used to carry replacements
for defective or missing
genes into human cells
