The field of biotechnology involves the use of microorganisms such as bacteria and yeast, or biological substances such as enzymes, to carry out industrial or manufacturing processes. Cloning is a good example. In modern (molecular) biotechnology, the desired characteristics are selected at the molecular level and added to an organism's genetic makeup. Applications of biotechnology include production of drugs, synthetic hormones, and bulk foodstuffs as well as the bioconversion of organic waste and the use of genetically altered bacteria in the cleanup of oil spills.

A course in biotechnology will include many of the following topics:

  • What is biotechnology
  • The Raw Materials of biotechnology
  • The Basic Skills of the biotechnology workplace
  • Introduction to studying DNA
  • Introduction to studying proteins
  • Finding a potential biotechnology product
  • Developing assays for biotechnology products
  • Modeling the production of a recombinant biotechnology product
  • Bringing a biotechnology product to market
  • Introduction to plant biotechnology
  • Biotechnology in agriculture
  • Biotechnology in medicine
  • Making DNA molecules
  • Advanced biotechnology techniques


Students interested in this field should be following the Journal of Biotechnology. There is also a large number of books written on this topic, many of which can be found on Amazon.com and Google.
