oa CSIR Science Scope - Combating debilitating and rare diseases with modern biotechnology : biotechnologist
Many biotechnological techniques, such as selective breeding to optimise crops and livestock, and fermentation to produce bread, cheese, beer, wine and yoghurt, have been in use since ancient times. These techniques often enable products to be manufactured more efficiently at lower cost, using less energy or smaller quantities of raw materials, and producing far less waste. In future, biotechnology will have an increasingly important role to play in making the world more sustainable, especially in improving human and animal health, and in raising the quality of life for people globally.
