Biotechnology is the branch of applied science that utilizes cellular and biomolecular processes to create technologies and products that help to improve our lives and the nature. Biotechnology has applications in four major areas, including health care, agriculture, environmental safety and food industry. Biotechnology involves understanding how living organisms function at the molecular level, so it combines the disciplines of biology and chemistry and utilizes mathematics and physics to provide the tools for modern biology and biomedical research.
