(Science: chemistry molecular biology) A set of biological techniques developed through basic research and now applied To research and product development.

In particular, the use by industry of recombinant dna, cell fusion, and new bioprocessing techniques.

biotechnology products include antibiotics, insulin, interferon, recombinant dna, and techniques such as waste recycling. Much older forms of biotechnology include breadmaking, cheese making and brewing wine and beer. The branch of molecular biology that studies the use of microorganisms To perform specific industrial processes; biotechnology produced genetically altered bacteria that solved the problem.The branch of engineering science In which biological Science is used To study the relation between workers and their environments.Biotechnology involves manipulating organic and inorganic materials To work As part of A single unit, and bridge the gap between living and non living components and their ability To function In tandem.
