what it is and how it helps mankind to develop
Keywords:Biotechnology, healthcare, innovation, patents, biotechnology, health, microorganisms
Biotechnology has been used by the human species since ancient times. This is because, in its broadest sense, biotechnology comprises the application of microorganisms, plants and animals to obtain processes and products of interest to society. Thus, ever since we used microorganisms to ferment bread, beverages, and other foods, we were already performing biotechnology. As time went by and science advanced, new technological tools were developed and started to complement biotechnology as we know it today.
