Whether its concerning Humans or Animals, Medicines, Food and Nutrition or Agriculture everything roots down to biotech.
Biotechnology is basically applying technology knowledge and applications to biology.
It is mainly a research oriented field.
Some of the common Research field of interests are into Agriculture and Agriculture development, Animal Husbandry, Genetics, Horticulture, Medicine, Molecular Biology, Dairy technology, Fisheries, Environmental study and so on.
