Introduction

Welcome to the research guide for biotechnology and genetic modification. "Biotechnology describes biological processes that have been engineered. The most common industrial application of biotechnology is the preparation of biological products from genetically engineered bacteria, yeast, fungi, or cells" (WHO, 2011). Examples explored in this guide include: genetic engineering, genetically modified organisms, stem cell research, cloning, drug-delivery systems, and vaccines.
