Genetic Engineering means the scientific manipulation of the genetic make-up of an organism by introducing or eliminating specific genes. While choosing the B.Tech. course in the discipline, think critically about its wider job scope.Genetics comes under the broad areas of biotechnology and the biotech industry depends on it to produce pharmaceutical products such as insulin and medicines. In the medical field, genetics focusses on diseases, striving to understand the molecular basis of diseases and their cure.Biotechnology plays a major role in industrial production, especially in biochemical engineering, integrating many branches of biology — microbiology, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology and so on — with chemical and systems engineering. Most universities offer Genetics not as a separate discipline, but as a subsidiary subject in the streams of Biotechnology, Microbiology and Biochemistry.
