Applications of Biotechnology

  • During the past three decades, scientists have made dramatic advances in biotechnology. It's now possible to manipulate the genetic makeup of many organisms, including plants and animals. These new techniques are providing solutions to medical and agricultural problems. However, advancing biotechnology also raises many practical and ethical questions.

  • In this Lesson, we'll explore how biologists manipulate DNA in plants for agricultural uses. We'll look at the use of biotechnological advances in medicine and the legal system. We'll also bring up some of the concerns raised by biotechnology.
