Biotechnology is the use of biological organisms or enzymes in the synthesis, breakdown or transformation of materials.
Biotechnology includes a whole range of processes, from the traditional production of cheeses, wine, bread and beer to the latest technologies that manipulate the DNA to produce genetically modified organisms which can be used to synthesise medicines or other chemicals for medical use.
At the beginning of the 21st century, the medical developments with the greatest potential to improve human health are all linked to biotechnology.
