Amazing Science: Biotech Postings | ANIMAL SAFETY | Scoop.it

The concept of 'biotech' or 'biotechnology' encompasses a wide range of procedures for modifying living organisms according to human purposes, going back to domestication of animals, cultivation of plants, and "improvements" to these through breeding programs that employ artificial selection and hybridization. Biotechnology bases on pure biological sciences (genetics, microbiology, animal cell culture, molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology, cell biology) and can be defined as the mere application of technical advances in life science to develop commercial products.
