Biotechnology is one of the most advanced disciplines of biology. Modern molecular biological techniques are applied on living cells, system or biological process to produce the product which is ultimately useful for betterment of human beings. The technology basically utilizes cells & cellular components such as DNA, proteins & other cellular biomolecules to develop the products. The scope of biotechnology extends to various areas like pharmaceutical & healthcare, agriculture, forestry, sericulture, horticulture, industrial bio-product, food processing, environmental cleaning, forensic sciences, bioinformatics, etc. Many breakthroughs have been made by using biotechnological tools in all the areas mentioned above.
