Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes (e.g. diagnostic or therapeutic). This field seeks to close the gap between engineering and medicine, combining the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to healthcare treatment, including diagnosis, monitoring, and therapy. Biomedical engineering has only recently emerged as its own study, compared to many other engineering fields. Such an evolution is common as a new field transitions from being an interdisciplinary specialization among already-established fields, to being considered a field in itself.

Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. By controlling information flow through biochemical signaling and the flow of chemical energy through metabolism, biochemical processes give rise to the complexity of life. Over the last decades of the 20th century, biochemistry has become so successful at explaining living processes that now almost all areas of the life sciences from botany to medicine to genetics are engaged in biochemical research. Today, the main focus of pure biochemistry is on understanding how biological molecules give rise to the processes that occur within living cells, which in turn relates greatly to the study and understanding of tissues, organs, and whole organisms that is, all of biology.

One kind of biotechnology is gene technology, sometimes called 'genetic engineering' or 'genetic modification', where the genetic material of living things is deliberately altered to enhance or remove a particular trait and allow the organism to perform new functions. Genes within a species can be modified, or genes can be moved from one species to another. Genetic engineering has applications in medicine, research, agriculture and can be used on a wide range of plants, animals and microorganisms. It resulted in a series of medical products. The first two commercially prepared products from recombinant DNA technology were insulin and human growth hormone, both of which were cultured in the E. coli bacteria.

Food processing is a process by which non-palatable and easily perishable raw materials are converted to edible and potable foods and beverages, which have a longer shelf life. Biotechnology helps in improving the edibility, texture, and storage of the food; in preventing the attack of the food, mainly dairy, by the virus like bacteriophage producing antimicrobial effect to destroy the unwanted microorganisms in food that cause toxicity to prevent the formation and degradation of other toxins and anti-nutritional elements present naturally in food.

Animal biotechnology is a branch of biotechnology in which molecular biology techniques are used to genetically engineer animals in order to improve their suitability for pharmaceutical, agricultural or industrial applications. Many animals also help by serving as models of disease. If an animal gets a disease that's similar to humans, we can use that animal to test treatments. Animals are often used to help us understand how new drugs will work and whether or not they'll be safe for humans and effective in treating disease.

Biotechnology is being used to address problems in all areas of Agricultural Production and processing. This includes Plant breeding to raise and stabilize yields; to improve resistance to pests, diseases and abiotic stresses such as drought and cold; and to enhance the nutritional content of foods. Modern Agricultural Biotechnology improves crops in more targeted ways. The best known technique is genetic modification, but the term Agricultural Biotechnology (or green biotechnology) also covers such techniques as Marker Assisted Breeding, which increases the effectiveness of Conventional Breeding.

Nano Biotechnology, Bio Nanotechnology, and Nano Biology are terms that refer to the intersection of Nanotechnology and Biology. Bio Nanotechnology and Nano Biotechnology serve as blanket terms for various related technologies. The most important objectives that are frequently found in Nano biology involve applying Nano tools to relevant Medical/Biological Problems and refining these applications. Developing new tools, such as peptide Nano sheets, for medical and Biological purposes is another primary objective in Nanotechnology.

Renewable energy is generated from renewable resources and waste materials, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, like sunlight, rain, tides, wind, water waves, and geothermal energy. The rapid increase of the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and also the limitation of non-renewable resources have accelerated the research and use of renewable energies. Various forms of renewable energies are biofuels, biomass, hydro thermal energy, geothermal energy, solar energy, ocean energy, wind power etc.

Bioinformatics is the application of computer technology to the management of Biological information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate Biological and Genetic information which can then be applied to gene-based drug discovery and development. The science of Bioinformatics, which is the melding of Molecular biology with computer science, is essential to the use of Genomic information in understanding human diseases and in the identification of new molecular targets for drug discovery. This interesting field of science has many applications and research areas where it can be applied. It plays an essential role in today's plant science. As the amount of data grows exponentially, there is a parallel growth in the demand for tools and methods in data management, visualization, integration, analysis, modeling, and prediction.

A biotechnology company is a company whose products or services primarily use Biotechnology methods for their production, design or delivery. The Nations Convention defines 'Biotechnology' as: "Any technological application that uses Biological systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use." In other words, Biotechnology can be defined as the mere application of technical advances in life science to develop commercial products. Today, no comprehensive global database of Biotech companies is available online, despite the fact that a free and open access project was launched in late 2014.

Biosafety is the prevention of large-scale loss of biological integrity, focusing both on ecology and human health. These prevention mechanisms include conduction of regular reviews of the biosafety in laboratory settings, as well as strict guidelines to follow. Biosafety is used to protect from harmful incidents. Many laboratories handling Biohazards employ an ongoing risk management assessment and enforcement process for biosafety. Failures to follow such protocols can lead to increased risk of exposure to Biohazards or Pathogens. (Citation) Human error and poor technique contribute to unnecessary exposure and compromise the best safeguards set into place for protection.
