Biotechnology uses living organisms or their parts to develop products or processes with practical applications in various industries, including healthcare. It combines biology, genetics, and other life sciences with engineering and technology to manipulate biological systems for the benefit of humanity.

The use and alteration of biological organisms often lead to ethical discussions, making bioethics an integral part of the use of biotechnology in society and research.

Examples of biotechnologies include genetic engineering, gene therapy, and biopharmaceutical production.
