So, what is Yellow Biotech?
Yellow biotechnology is an integral part of the biotechnology that studies, researches and experiments regarding food production. Some grains are not edible without fermentation and some foods can be made into other varieties with the help of engineering.
The genes active in insects under this technology are used in agriculture and medicine. It is also used to control changes in food caused by bacteria. With the constant study and use of this method, a variety of safe, reliable and healthy foods can be found in the world today. It brings great relief to end famine and starvation.

Food is the basic need of living beings. It is not a big deal for a farmer to produce enough grain by hard work, but the quality matters because more people die of inappropriate food rather than famine and starvation.
Yellow biotechnology plays a leading role in the food storage, fermentation and the globalization. The technology of making juices, liquors, medicines as well as many other verities from grains and fruits has become great assistance.
This biotechnology process has been instrumental in enhancing the nutritional value, taste, and aroma of food, as well as the use of enzymes to process food and the production of vaccines.
Above all, it aims to eliminate hunger from the world, taking into account the health of consumers. Some bacteriophages are used to prevent food from further infections.
All the plants and animals that grow in nature today may not be perfect in natural qualities. Due to various human culprits, natural disasters and many other factors, such natural qualities have disappeared. Due to the growing population, more and more food has to be supplied.
Therefore, it is a great achievement of Yellow Biotechnology to produce more quantity, quality, taste and reliability than natural by modifying the genes of most crops and animals in the agricultural sector.
Genetic modification has worked well in agricultural crops such as maize, paddy, wheat, tomato, eggplant, cauliflower, bean, potato, apple, orange and so forth.
In the same way, genetic modification in animals that provide meat, eggs, and dairy products has addressed today’s growing need. Genetically modified foods are not only nutritious, healthy, and tasty, but they also contributed to food shortages and financial burdens.
Vitro Cell Culture Technology
The meat industry is up to 24% responsible for greenhouse gas emissions. Demand for this specialty has grown significantly however it has extreme concerns. This is due to depletion of our natural resources and rapid population growth.
The meat industry is very difficult to manage because it needs to be improved from every farm that produces it. Since antibiotics, pesticides, animal wastes and hormones used during rearing pollute the environment and such meats are not beneficial from a health point of view.
Yellow Biotechnology is implementing a strategy on how to improve such products.
These include keeping the farm clean and tidy, using clean water, avoiding antibiotics, pesticides, and, as far as possible, modifying the genes of animals produced for meat and focusing on quality products.
Biological Infection Control
In order to achieve great feats in the field of science, very subtle things have to be researched and used. With this in mind, Yellow Biotechnology manipulates the larvae’s genes by subtly studying the genes of the larvae using RNAi technology to enhance the quality of the plant.
Viral vectors infected plants are fed to gene modified larvae to produce a healthy plant after infection.
Germany scientists have discovered this technique. In this way genetically transformed plants are cultivated and the genes of specific insects are identified.
Only the study of insects’ gene can discover the method of destroying harmful insects and increase the number of beneficial insects. The use of unnecessary pesticides has adverse effects on the environment and insects also become resistant.
