Malaysia focuses on three major biotechnology industry segments:
Agricultural Biotechnology relates to applications of biotechnology in food and agriculture. Examples of agricultural technology research and applications include genetically modified crops that offer:
Crops that can use low quality soil to increase food production
Crops that offer additional features such as iron in rice for better public health
Resistant crops that need less pesticides to become more cost efficient
Healthcare Biotechnology relates to applications of biotechnology for medicine and health. Examples include new therapies based on the understanding of root causes of illness (e.g. cancer), and diagnosis and personalized treatments based on knowledge of an individual's genetic predisposition.
Industrial Biotechnology relates to applications of biotechnology in managing waste and environment. Examples of industrial biotechnology research and applications include development of biodegradable plastics, bacteria engineered to clean up toxic chemical spills, and fibers from renewable resources such as corn.

Your Muscles

Muscle tissue is made of excitable cells that are capable of contraction. This tissue is the most abundant tissue in most animals.

There are three major types of muscle tissue:
Cardiac Muscle - found in the heart.
Skeletal Muscle - attached to bones by tendons.
Visceral (Smooth) Muscle - found in various parts of the body such as the arteries and many other organs.

Skeletal muscles are voluntary muscles because animals have control over their contraction. Visceral muscles are involuntary since, for the most part, they are not consciously controlled.
