Biotechnology is a field of applied biology that involves the use of living things in engineering, technology, medicine, and other useful applications. Biotechnology is the application of scientific information and methods to biological problems such as in agriculture and medicine.
The use of microorganisms, such as bacteria or yeasts, or biological substances, such as enzymes, to perform specific industrial or manufacturing processes. Applications include the production of certain drugs, synthetic hormones, and bulk foodstuffs as well as the bioconversion of organic waste and the use of genetically altered bacteria in the cleanup of oil spills.
