What is Biotechnology?
  • Traditional biotechnology uses the processes of
    organisms, such as selective breeding and the
    making of beer, wine, bread, fabrics, and enzymes
  • The study of the cell, its processes and products
    which can be used to improve the human condition.

The Cell

4
DNA
  • DNA codes for who you are
  • If we can change your DNA, we can change who you
    are.
