Biotechnology is a field of applied biology that involves the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering technology medicine and other fields requiring bioproducts. Modern use similar term includes genetic engineering as well as cell- and tissue culture technologies. The concept encompasses a wide range of procedures (and history ) for modifying living organisms according to human purposes - going back to domestication of animals, cultivation of plants, and "improvements" to these through breeding programs that employ artificial selection and hybridization . By comparison to biotechnology, bioengineering is generally thought of as a related field with its emphasis more on higher systems approaches (not necessarily altering or using biological materials directly ) for interfacing with and utilizing living things.

Biotechnology refers to technology used to manipulate DNA. The procedures are often referred to as genetic engineering DNA is the genetic material of all living organisms and all organisms use the same genetic code. Genes from one kind of organism can be transcribed and translated when put into another kind of organism. For example, human and other genes are routinely put into bacteria in order to synthesize products for medical treatment and commercial use. Human insulin, human growth hormone, and vaccines are produced by bacteria. Recombinant DNA refers to DNA from two different sources. Individuals that receive genes from other species are transgenic Biotechnology techniques often involve putting genes in viruses or bacteria.
Viruses contain genetic material but are not living. Host cells are required for their reproduction.
Viruses are composed of an inner nucleic acid core (genetic material) and an outer protein coat (capsid). An outer envelope (membrane) that is derived from membranes of the host cell may surround the capsid. The genetic material in some viruses is DNA; in others it is RNA.

ScanBalt Forum finished with success 9th edition of ScanBalt Forum has already finished. Lasting 3 days Forum (22-24th September 2010, Tallinn) was focused on determining future directions for the whole sector.
"The main goals of the concept "ScanBalt Forum" is to: be a platform for discussion of new ideas and projects relevant for ScanBalt BioRegion, be a platform for coordination between ongoing projects and activities and Promote the concept of ScanBalt BioRegion" - said Peter Frank, General Secretary of ScanBalt. Furthermore ScanBalt Forum promotes dialogue with decision and opinion makers as well as promotes the organisers region and its competencies. Were these goals fulfilled?

"This concept is designed to be a very practical tool for the development of ScanBalt BioRegion and avoid competition with the various regional conferences and fairs as it is much more a kind of hands-on tool. This years ScanBalt Forum was highly focussed on these goals and the evaluation very positive. This obviously due to the strong commitment of Enterprise Estonia and the extremely efficient conference organisation by the Estonian Genome Foundation and the Estonian Biotech Association. Estonia has been deeply committed to the development of ScanBalt BioRegion right from the beginning of 2001 based on mutual interests and I believe that here - close to the 10 years jubilee - it was obvious how far we have come" - adds Peter Frank.

Biotechnology Summary
Biotechnology, or the genetic modification of living materials, has ignited heated debates over trade policy. Innovations in the manipulation of microbes, plants, and animals raises serious ethical questions related to the commoditization and exchange of living organisms. In the arena of trade policy, these ethical questions pose a unique economic dilemma: to what extent should trade policy reflect moral and ethical judgments about the fruits of biotechnology? Debate on Genetically Modified Foods The principal cause of the debate surrounding products of biotechnology is the uncertainty of the long-term health and environmental effects of genetically modified living materials. Though many scientists believe GM foods to be safe, a small but influential group of researchers maintain that uncertainty about their effects on human health justifies extreme precaution, including the possible use of trade restrictions. Some supporters of GM foods agree that rigorous testing and research should continue but that in the meantime the benefits of heartier or enriched crops are too great to ignore and are essential in eliminating world hunger and malnutrition. Advocates of sustainable development are also wary of the long-term effects that GM crops could exert on the environment. Agricultural concerns center on issues of 'genetic pollution' or the genetic flow from GM crops to unmodified plants in the wild. Transfer of genes from GM to wild plants could create health problems in humans, anti-biotic resistance in plants and associated insects, long-term damage to ecosystems, loss of biodiversity, and lack of consumer choice.

General Biotechnology Degree Information
Those with biotechnology degrees command a great deal of scientific research funding, as the ability to create new and more productive food sources is always in demand. While biology degrees tend to be more theoretical, biotechnology degree programs teach the application of biological science to address some of the world's biggest health and survival concerns. Biotechnology opens up a nearly limitless array of career paths for those who successfully complete the degree requirements.
Biotechnology Degree Study Options
Those wishing to get started down a biotechnology career path without any prior biology or biotechnology experience may want to consider pursuing a biotechnology certificate degree program. These certificates can be obtained through continuing education distance learning programs and can be achieved in a relatively short time. When earned through an accredited program, these certificates may be sufficient for the holder to earn a job as a laboratory or research technician. Those with higher aspirations in biotechnology may consider an associate's degree that will provide additional research skills and technical knowledge.

SCOPE Biotechnology is that "branch of technology concerned with modern forms of industrial production utilizing living organisms, especially micro-organisms, and their biological processes," according to the Oxford English Dictionary. The actual term applies to a wide variety of uses of such biological technology, including the development of new breeds of plants and animals, the creation of therapeutic drugs and preventive vaccines, the growing of more nutritious and naturally pest-resistant crops as a food source, and the production of biofuels as an alternative energy source. The basic idea of biotechnology has existed since prehistoric times. When early humans learned that they could plant their own crops and breed their own animals, and realized that they could selectively breed plants and livestock, they were practicing biotechnology. It was in 1919 that the actual term, "Biotechnologie" or "biotechnology," was coined by Karl Ereky, a Hungarian engineer. Since the end of World War II, biotechnology has also been used for large-scale waste management, chemotherapy drug production, ore leaching, and other commercial operations.
