With the emergence of new areas within the field biology such as biotechnology, Bioinformatics, bio medical science , genetics etc and the life threatening challenges such as global warming, excessive environment pollution has significantly changed the role of biologist over the years.

More specifically the Swift advances in knowledge of genetics and organic molecules spurred growth in the field of biotechnology, transforming the industries in which biological scientists work. Biological scientist now manipulate the genetic material of animals plants, attempting to make organisms more productive or resistant to disease.

Basic and applied research on biotechnological processes such as recombining DNA has led to production of important substances including human insulin and growth hormones. many other substances not previously available in large quantities are now produced by biotechnological means. Some of these substances are useful in treating diseases.

A lot of biologists are involved in biotechnology. Those working on various genome projects isolated genes and determine their function. This work continuous to lead to the discovery of genes associated with specific diseases and inherited health risks such as sickle cell anemia.

Biologists in fields such as bioinformatic and computational biology apply mathematical techniques to solve biological problems such as modeling ecosystem processes and gene sequencing. Advances in biotechnology have created research opportunities in almost all areas of biology with commercial applications in areas such as medicine, agriculture and environmental remediation.
