Traditionally, “biotechnology” was defined as the use of biological organisms or other biological systems for the manufacture or modification of products or processes for specific use.

In recent years, however, the definition of biotechnology has been applied more broadly to include technology that interacts with biological systems for the purpose of modifying a product or process.

Thus, a wide range of industries fall under the banner of biotechnology, including, but not limited to:

  • Agricultural Biotechnology
  • Aquaculture/Marine Biotechnology
  • Environmental Biotechnology
  • Food Production and Processing

  • Forest Products
  • Human Health and Therapeutics
  • Industrial Biotech
  • Viticulture, Oenology and Brewing

The specific bioscience areas that biotech companies might have an interest in include, but are not limited to:
  • Agriculture
  • Bacteriology
  • Biochemical engineering
  • Biofuels
  • Bioleaching
  • Bioinformatics
  • Biologics
  • Bioprocessing
