So Just What is Biotechnology??

Defined broadly, biotechnology is the use of a living organism to make a product or run a process. Narrower definitions often limit biotechnology to genetic engineering and recombinant DNA technology. The root words are ancient Greek:

Bios: "Life"
Technikos: "skillfully made" or "tool"
Logos: "study of," "word" or "essence of"
Biotechnology: "the study of living tools" -- used in agriculture, food processing, industrial production, environmental cleanup and medicine.
