Biotechnology is a highly interdisciplinary subject encompassing biological sciences, process engineering, and technology. The scope and application of the subject is manifold, spanning from synthesizing genetically modified food, drought-resistant crops in agricultural sciences; tissue engineering, drug designing in the medical field and also in areas such as bioinformatics and aquatic living systems. Besides, the subject also involves studies on public policy planning, such as the use of genetically modified food and ethical issues involved with it, tampering the crop/gene to make them disease resistant and embryonic stem cell technology to name a few. The versatility of the subject is in understanding how living organisms work at a microscopic level and to find remedies/solution to make living things to work in a way that we expect. Unlike other engineering subjects, Biotechnology deals with tailoring the living systems, whose outcome might turn benignant or malignant....
