Aquaculture & Marine Biotechnology helps to control the marine organisms and water borne organisms. It is a process which has to do with marine or underwater environment. Blue Biotechnology is used to protect the marine organisms from harmful diseases underwater. The control of seasonal production and reproduction in farm animals has become major research goals. The applications of biotechnology to fish farming and ornamental fish production are numerous and valuable in both economic (food production, aquarium trade) and environmental terms (conservation of natural biodiversity for endangered species and protection of natural biodiversity from escapee domesticated strains). With the growing demand for fish products, biotechnology can help in the development of high quality, economical produce, thereby reducing pressure on natural populations.

Agricultural Biotechnology is a collection of scientific techniques used to improve plants, animals and microorganisms. Based on an understanding of DNA, scientists have developed solutions to increase agricultural productivity. Starting from the ability to identify genes that may confer advantages on certain crops, and the ability to work with such characteristics very precisely, biotechnology enhances breeders’ ability to make improvements in crops and livestock. Biotechnology enables improvements that are not possible with traditional crossing of related species alone. To accomplish these goals, Biotechnologists develop products to protect animals and crops from disease and help farmers identify the best animals and seeds to use in selective breeding programs.

If developed to its full potential, industrial biotechnology may have a larger impact on the world than health care and agricultural biotechnology. Industrial biotechnology involves working with nature to maximize and optimize existing biochemical pathways that can be used in manufacturing. The industrial biotechnology revolution rides on a series of related developments in three fields of study of detailed information derived from the cell: genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics

Medical Microbiology also known as clinical microbiology, is the study of microbes, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, which cause a human illness and their role in the disease. The microbes and the branch of microbiology are the most studied due to their great importance to medicine. Medical microbiology studies development and progress of the infectious disease in a patient and in human population (epidemiology). It is related to the study of disease pathology and immunology. It is a branch of medicine and microbiology and includes five sciences: bacteriology, virology, parasitology, immunology and mycology. It is used for the production of drugs and antibiotic medicines. It also helps to create or design organisms. Through the process of genetic manipulation it helps to cure genetic issues in organisms. It also helps in analysing diseases in organisms. It also helps in developing new ways of diagnosis by performing tests. With the help of stem cell therapy it helps the organs to grow and it also cures the damaged issues in organisms.

Food Microbiology deals with study of association of micro-organism with food. Micro-organism deal with food in two ways one it can spoil the food and spread the infection or disease. Secondly it can used some substrate and convert into a product that is fermentation. Micro-organism can ferment the substrate and form the product like curd, Idli, Cheese, Butter etc. If the quality of food is not check properly it may result in spread of food born diseases. So the study related fermentation and quality check of food is important.

Agricultural Microbiology is a field of study concerned with plant-associated microbes. It aims to address problems in agricultural practices usually caused by a lack of biodiversity in microbial communities. An understanding of microbial strains relevant to agricultural applications is useful in the enhancement of factors such as soil nutrients, plant-pathogen resistance, crop robustness, fertilization uptake efficiency, and more. The many symbiotic relationships between plants and microbes can ultimately be exploited for greater food production necessary to feed the expanding human populace, in addition to safer farming techniques for the sake of minimizing ecological disruption.

Chemistry is the study of the properties of and interactions between matter and energy. In other words, chemistry is a way to study the properties, characteristics, and physical and chemical changes of matter.

It is sometimes called the central science because it provides a foundation for understanding both basic and applied scientific disciplines at a fundamental level. It include plant chemistry (botany), the formation of igneous rocks (geology), how atmospheric ozone is formed and how environmental pollutants are degraded (ecology), the properties of the soil on the moon (astrophysics), how medications work (pharmacology), and how to collect DNA evidence at a crime scene (forensics).
