What is Biotechnology ?
- Biotechnology is the use of technology to use, modify or upgrade the part or whole of biological system for industrial and human welfare.
- Biotechnology uses living things for the development of various products benefiting human beings.
- It is a combination of various technologies, applied together to living cells, including biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics and engineering.
Why study Biotechnology at BMS?

Biotechnologists use biological organisms to create and improve products and processes in fields such as medicine, agriculture, industry and environmental conservation. They study physiochemical and Genetic attributes of cells, tissues and organisms, and identify their applicability. Biotechnologists use cutting edge technologies such as genetic modification and nanotechnology in addition to developing new medicines, therapies and diagnostic methods; using bacteria and enzymes in food production and waste treatment; and cross-breeding plants and animals to obtain beneficial characteristics.
