Recent advancement of technologies, easier availability of internet and big data era and their prospects in applied areas such as biotechnology and biomedical are tremendous. Advanced smart sensors, smart phones based instruments/devices and integrated networking provides automation in research and development (R&D) with IoT (The Internet of Things). IoT has huge prospective for technological revolution and innovation thereby advancing biotechnological and biomedical research, innovation and its application in smarter and innovative way. This review focuses comprehensive, fundamentals, technical, advanced and applied chore of IoT, especially focusing the biotechnological and biomedical aspects. Past decade has witnessed dramatic rise in internet-based technology and generation of big data in digital diagnostic, digital imaging, digital biotech, precision farming, lab-on phone and automation of R&D. IoT based digital health uses platforms and technologies for cloud storage, data sharing, big data analytics, embedded sensors, smart wearable devices, sustainable computing, data mining, biomedical imaging, intelligent algorithm and healthcare informatics etc. IoT provides healthcare mobility solution and system for realtime data collection, big data storage, transmission and analysis on cloud platforms. Additionally, IoT impede disease diagnosis, remote patient care, optimizing hospital operations, green smart city, inventory control, livestock control and streamlining data management moving these sectors toward digital revolution era.
