Introduction

  • Biotechnology deals with the techniques of using living organisms or enzymes from organisms to produce products useful to humans.
  • The processes like in vitro fertilization leading to a ‘test-tube’ baby, synthesizing a gene and using it, developing a DNA vaccine or correcting a defective gene, are all parts of biotechnology.
  • Biotechnology can be defined as- ‘The integration of natural science and organisms, cells, parts thereof, and molecular analogues for products and services’.
