What is Biotechnology?
Biotechnology is a business sector and scientific discipline which deals with the use of living organisms or their products in industrial processes to improve the quality of human life. It is not an industry per se, but rather a group of related technologies that is used by many industries.
Genetics: the science of genes, heredity, and variation in living organisms.
Molecular Biology: Science that studies the biochemical and molecular processes of cells, especially the processes of replication, transcription and translation.
Genomics: A study of the complete DNA sequences, or genomes, of living things. It includes the interaction of genomes with various environmental influences; it differs from classical biological research in its large scale, broad scope and intense reliance on bioinformatics.
Proteomics: A study of all the proteins that make up an organism, the way they interact, the changes that they undergo and the effects that they have within the organism.
