This is because, in its broadest sense, biotechnology comprises the application of microorganisms, plants and animals to obtain processes and products of interest to society. Thus, ever since we used microorganisms to ferment bread, beverages, and other foods, we were already performing biotechnology. As time went by and science advanced, new technological tools were developed and started to complement biotechnology as we know it today.&nbsp; </span></p> 2023-09-19T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Biofarma - Multidisciplinary Scientific Journal of Biology, Pharmacy and Health https://biofarma1.net/index.php/1/article/view/32 GENOME AND GENETIC VARIATIONS OF CORONAVIRUSES 2023-09-14T16:46:35+00:00 António A.

Alcochete dadosmais@gmail.com <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The knowledge of genetics, using innovative technologies and methodologies that allow the analysis and comparison of multiple genomes of viruses, vectors and hosts, as a function of time and space is very informative because it allows the understanding of the origin, evolution and geographical dispersion of the disease.</span></p> 2023-09-19T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Biofarma - Multidisciplinary Scientific Journal of Biology, Pharmacy and Health https://biofarma1.net/index.php/1/article/view/31 THE DIAGNOSIS OF ALZHEIMER'S AND COGNITIVE DISORDER 2023-09-14T16:24:49+00:00 Rondineli S Souza psi.rondineli@gmail.com Dawn Renee Menegucci dawnrm.dr@gmail.com <p>Patients from various backgrounds come to the Psychosocial Care Centres in their respective regions in Brazil, where care is provided on spontaneous demand from patients or through referral from a specialized primary medical unit, be it an emergency or clinical/psychiatric hospitalization, and inevitably the professional who sees this patient needs to lead to a diagnosis or initially base it on a clinical judgment, as part of the first assessment of the condition. When the demand is for a judgment of dementia, which is based on the assumption of chronic, global and generally irreversible degeneration of cognition, although based on the clinical diagnosis, it is important to proceed to confirmation through laboratory and imaging tests, which will serve to identify the treatable causes. However, clinical decision-making about what to do next with a patient depends much more on clinical judgment, to establish the severity of the symptoms and the factors affecting the patient's life, as well as their real hopes for treatment with the available and approved drug therapies and the outcome they expect.</p> 2023-09-19T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Biofarma - Multidisciplinary Scientific Journal of Biology, Pharmacy and Health https://biofarma1.net/index.php/1/article/view/33 Autism spectrum disorders 2023-09-14T17:01:38+00:00 A.
