Biotechnology is “the integration of natural sciences and engineering in order to achieve the application of organisms, cells, parts thereof and molecular analogues for products and services”. Biotechnology, for more than a century, has acted as a vital buffer between people, pollution and the environment.

It may be that biotechnology will not only be able to help clean up the messes that we inflict on the Mother Earth, but also prevent them ever happening in the first place
