Biotechnology is the use of living systems and organisms to create new technologies. On the simpler end of the spectrum, baking bread with yeast is an example of this interdisciplinary science. On the more complex side, genetic engineering, biochemistry, and molecular biology are pushing boundaries in an effort to treat illnesses, develop new biofuels, and grow plants more efficiently to feed more people.
