The enormous diversity of microorganisms in the environment offers an almost unlimited gene pool for new enzymes and metabolic pathways. The discovery of new natural products continues to be of great interested for the production of pharmaceuticals. An exciting approach to generating new products is to evolve novel metabolic pathways in a microbial cell by means of the technique of metabolic engineering. Cell culture is playing an increasingly more significant role in drug discovery. Animal cell biotechnology constitutes an important field in Biotechnology nowadays. Animal cells produce many biological of great value involving enzymes, hormones, growth factors, viral vaccines, or monoclonal antibodies, and many therapeutic proteins require post-translational modifications which can be only fully performed by animal cells. Insect virus, immune-regulators or whole cells, which are used for toxicological testing, can be obtained from animal.
