The importance of molecular biology and biotechnology in national defence

Şefik Güran.

Abstract
Recent advances in molecular biology and biotechnology affect our life in many ways. Today, this technology is used in preventive medicine (preparation of vaccine), in treatment (drug production), in agriculture (production of biotechnological plants and fruits) and in similar areas. However, there is also the possibility of using such a useful technology in a bioterorist attack. This possibility is currently an important danger to our world. In case of such an attack, our country should have developed technologies for vaccination and early diagnosis. Thus, supporting the institutes or universities working in the area of biotechnology, and establishing new institutions that will develop new technologies are important approaches in national defence strategy.

Key words: Molecular biology, biotechnology, gene technology, recombinant DNA technology, bioterrorism



Ulusal savunmada moleküler biyoloji ve biyoteknolojinin önemi

Özet
Moleküler biyoloji ve biyoteknolojideki son gelişmeler, hayatımızı birçok yönden etkilemektedir. Günümüzde bu teknoloji, koruyucu hekimlikte (aşı hazırlanmasında), tedavide (ilaç teknolojisinde), tarımda (biyoteknolojik bitki ve meyve üretiminde) ve buna benzer alanlarda kullanılmaktadır. İnsanlık için çok yararlı olan böyle bir teknolojinin, biyoterörist bir saldırıda kullanılması olasılığı da vardır. Bu olasılık, halen dünyamız için önemli bir tehlikedir. Böyle bir saldırı durumunda, ülkemizin aşılama ve erken tanı için gerekli gelişmiş teknolojilere sahip olması gereklidir. Bu nedenle, bu konuda çalışan enstitülerin ve üniversitelerin desteklenmesi, bu alanda yeni teknoloji üretecek enstitülerin kurulması, ulusal savunmada önemli yaklaşımlardan birisi olabilir.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Moleküler biyoloji, biyoteknoloji, gen teknolojisi, rekombinan DNA teknolojisi, biyoterörizm
