Biotech companies produce products that are beneficial to humans, such as medicines and therapies that can save lives, enhance yields on farms, and create sustainable chemicals and fuels. Bioinformatics is also a part of it, which is the study of biological processes and information. It is utilized in many different industries.

Biotech is a technology that has its roots in the early 1970s, when recombinant-DNA technology (genetic engineering) was invented and then patentable. This technique allows scientists to create production cells that then begin producing valuable protein molecules.

Biotechnology is extensively used in the target-discovery programs of a majority of pharmaceutical companies today. There are also small companies that employ unique techniques that are proprietary to create therapeutic drugs.

Other biotechnology-related applications are being explored by companies that focus on agro biology, cosmetics as well as the environment, food technology as well as industrial biotechnology and nutraceuticals and veterinary medicine. Fully integrated Pharma companies are massive, commercial enterprises that research and manufacture generic or brand-name drugs.

Biotech is changing due to new technologies. Companies can now validate their systems for conditions that have well-understood mechanisms, like sickle cell anemia, and reach broader patient populations. Certain companies are working to develop novel therapies for diseases that haven’t been addressed, such as Duchenne muscle dystrophy.
