Biotechnology is defined, according to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, as a discipline that is primarily concerned with the development of “Any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use". Basically, it's a very broad area of biology that involves technology which uses living organisms or systems to develop or make biological products.
Biotechnology offers many overlaps across a multitude of sectors, including; medical and clinical research, agriculture, environmental, food production, cancer research, bio-robotics and defence to name but a few. Biotech is arguably one of the most exciting sectors in science at the moment. Covid-19 has had a massive impact on the industry as the demand for human health products increases due to the pandemic.
Aside from the pandemic, the biotech industry has has grown exponentially over the past 20 years and public attitudes to this sector have changed. The biotech industry continues to flourish nationwide and across the globe, which has resulted in the total number of biotechnology companies increasing rapidly and the number of biotech jobs continue to grow at a very high rate.
