Biotechnology is not a singular entity. It is a collection of technologies, all of which utilize cells and biological molecules.
Developing technology that the cells and the biological molecules in place of whole multicellular organisms allow us to capitalize on a critical aspect of life at the cellular and molecular level; the extraordinary specificity of interactions. Because of this specificity the tools and techniques of biotechnology is quite precise and are tailored to operate in known predictable ways.
Any one of the techniques can produce a wide variety of products; any one product may have diverse application. For example, Xanthan gum, currently produced by bacteria through bio processing technology can be used to thicken salad dressing and jams or to clean residual oil from oil wells. A genetically engineered bacterium could synthesize a protein-digesting enzyme dissolving blood clots.
In other technologies that use cells and biological molecules are: monoclonal antibody technology, cell and tissue culture technology, biosensor technology, genetic engineering technology, protein engineering technology, antisense technology.
In coming years the diverse collection of technologies labeled "biotechnology" will yield an even broader array of products. Most of the commercial applications of biotechnology will be in three areas; human health care, agriculture and environmental management.Medical biotechnology provides us with quicker test, therapeutic compounds with fewer side effects and safer vaccines.
