"Biotechnology means any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use."

 Before the 1970s, the term, Biotechnology, was primarily used in food processing and agriculture industries. Since 1970s, it began to refer to laboratory-based techniques developed in biological research, such as recombinant DNA or tissue culture-based processes. In fact, the term should be used in a much broader sense to describe the whole range of methods, both ancient and modern, used to manipulate organic matter to meet human needs. Therefore, the term can be defined as, "The application of indigenous and/or scientific knowledge to the management of (parts of) microorganisms, or of cells and tissues of higher organisms so that these supply goods and services of use to human beings

 There has been a great deal of talk - and money - poured into biotechnology with the hope that miracle drugs will appear. While there do seem to be a small number of efficacious drugs, in general, the biotech revolution has not happened in the pharmaceutical sector. However, given recent progress with monoclonal antibody-based drugs, biotech may finally find a role in pharmaceutical sales.
