Some Background



U.S. Office of Technology Assessment
:


Biotechnology
-

“those techniques that use living organisms to make or modify
products, to improve plants or animals, or to develop microorganis
ms for specific uses.”


Savage
:

Bio
-
related technology
-

“the practical application of mechanical devices,
products, substances, or organisms to improve health or to contribute to the harmony
between humans and their environment.”


Instructional Materials L
aboratory:


Biotechnology
-

“the application of scientific principles to living things. It
involves harnessing the natural biological processes of cells from microorganisms,
animals, and plants to develop useful products.”

“A narrower definition… includes o
nly those processes that involve the recombination of
genes from living things in a laboratory setting.”


Depco
:


Biotechnology
-

“The use of current technologies for the modification and
improvement of biological systems.”


PA Department of Education Proje
ct
:


Biotechnology
-

(in between) “is anything that directly effects or alters a living
organism.”


Grace
:


Biotechnology
-


(simple) “the commercialization of cell biology.”

(umbrella) “various techniques for using the properties of living things to make
products
or provide services.”

(modern) “not the principle of using various organisms but the techniques for doing so.”
