Biotechnology is also employed in the realm of fisheries to increase fish production using a variety of ways. Aquaculture biotechnology, marine biotechnology, algal biotechnology, and processing biotechnology are the four broad categories of fisheries biotechnology. Induction and regulation of maturation and spawning, sex control (androgenesis and gynogenesis), sex inversion in protandrous species like sea bass and protogynous species like grouper, and the generation of triploid, tetraploid, and transgenic fishes have all benefited from biotechnology.
The application of computer technology to the management of biological data is known as bioinformatics. Computers are used to collect, store, analyze, and integrate biological and genetic data, which can then be used to generate gene-based drugs. Bioinformatics is currently critical for analyzing genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic data generated by high-throughput experimental technologies, as well as organizing data from traditional biology and medicine.
