Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology (BTY)

  /  Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology (BTY)

Biotechnology encompasses the application of biological processes, organisms, or systems to develop products, technologies, and solutions that improve various sectors, including healthcare, agriculture, industrial processes, and environmental sustainability. It involves using living organisms or their components to create, modify, or enhance products or processes for the benefit of society. A few of the recent groundbreaking products developed via biotechnology companies include vaccines, biopesticides, biofuels, and stress-tolerant crops.
