Consistent advance in genetic engineering has offered ascend to various promising fields of research that encouraged the development of twice industrial biotechnology and quality production. The discipline of metabolic engineering, which uses genetic devices, has had an especially solid effect by giving new stages to industrial biotechnology. Late improvements in life sciences guarantee to extend the metabolic engineering tool compartment assist by making novel natural parts for pathway plan. Moreover, synthetic biology represents an innovative concept for learning about and via biomolecules and data, with appliances in fundamental sciences, agriculture and biotechnology. The present review tends to a portion of the current advances in biological sciences and how these can possibly influence bioproduct qualities as olive oil. A few cases of uses for modern sciences as bioinformatics and synthetic biology  and metabolic engineering in life sciences and particularly in agronomy are additionally also discussed.
