Stem cell research is well known in clinics to treat diseases as huge research has resulted in successful isolation, maintenance and manipulation of stem cells in vitro. Much information regarding molecular biology of number of cells/stem cells is known and have shown a promising potential in biotechnology. Biotechnologist have used novel approaches in last decade for the production of human compatible recombinant proteins and recently, stem cells have been considered as potential biotechnological agents. Focus should be done to engineer cells for specific trait production such as germ cells. It also has been shown that maintenance of germ cells is not an easy task but successful trans-differentiation of other multipotent stem cells such as mesenchymal stem cells toward germ cell linages have opened the opportunities to engineer MSC and then trans-differentiate towards germ like-cells which can be used to develop transgenic animals. Focus should be done on cell based biotechnological productions to revolutionize health biotechnology.
