Biotechnology is the fastest growing applied science of this century. It can be simply defined as the fusion of Microbiology, Biochemistry and Engineering in an integrated fashion and is aimed at using micro-organisms and cells to manufacture useful products.

The Biotechnology boom is due to Genetic Engineering, which gives the power of inserting foreign genes into an organism by the scientists.
