What IS biotechnology? The Biotechnology Innovation Organization, or BIO, states that "biotechnology harnesses cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet." Using this definition, applications for biotechnology are broad from agriculture to medicine, energy production, chemical processing, industrial manufacturing, and bioremediation (or environmental clean-up).

=>What can I do with a major in Biotechnology?

The biotechnology sector is a quickly evolving industry. According to Life Sciences & Biotech Middle Skills Workforce in California (2014) "The life sciences/biotechnology sector is best understood as a group of diverse industries with a common link--the application of biological scientific knowledge. Biotechnology harnesses cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that combat debilitating and rare diseases, reduce our environmental footprint, feed the hungry, use less and cleaner energy, and have safer, cleaner and more efficient industrial manufacturing processes. The sector represents a mix of five industry sub-sectors: -Agricultural Feedstock & Chemicals, -Drugs & Pharmaceuticals, -Medical Devices & Equipment, -Research Testing & Medical Laboratories, and -Bioscience-related Distribution."
