Biotechnology and other Sciences

Vibha Purohit (Author)

The simplest definition of biotechnology is ‘applied biology’. It is the application of biological knowledge and techniques to develop products. It may be further defined as the use of living organisms to make a product or run a process. By this definition, the classic techniques used for plant and animal breeding, fermentation and enzyme purification would be considered biotechnology. Some people use the term only to refer to newer tools of genetic science. In this context, biotechnology may be defined as the use fo biotechnical methods to modify the genetic materials of living cells so they will produce new substances or perform new functions. Examples include recombinant DNA technology, in which a copy of a piece of DNA containing one or a few genes is transferred between organisms or ‘recombined’ within an organism. This book deals with the concepts of Biotechnology with other sciences and thus acts as a good information source for students.
