Biotechnology refers to laboratory-based techniques such as genetic engineering, recombinant DNA, tissue culture, and horizontal gene transfer, to make or modify products, to improve plants or animals, or to develop useful microorganisms. Examples include gene transfer to increase plant yield or disease resistance; cell and tissue culture to clonally propagate plants or animals; manipulation of microorganisms or cultured cells for the production of fermented food and beverages or the development of vaccines; production of antibodies for detection of animal and plant diseases; drug discovery and development. Students will gain laboratory and/or field experience in modern techniques of biotechnology, preparing them for biosciences or biomedical graduate/professional schools or careers in biotechnology.
