Biotechnology » Overview

Cut through the public debate and decide for yourself whether the science of modifying living organism is for you. Help crop-growth, livestock health and human resistance to disease by studying Biotechnology.

Biotechnology is the process of modifying living organisms to make things for human purpose. From domestication of animals to cultivation of plants – it is the human manipulation of breeding programs including artificial selection and hybridisation. Put in the broadest terms it is the commercial exploitation of living organisms or their components.

While this has been a concept around for decades, its full potential is only just being realised by the public which is often a cause for debate. Are you pro-Genetic Engineering?
