INTRODUCTION

 Biotechnology is the dynamic branch of biological sciences, which connect biology with the revolutionary technologies including machine learning, robotics, quantum mechanics, electrical engineering, and biosensing devices, materials designing, agriculture, industrial enzymology, genetic engineering, computational biology, digital health care and many more.
Biotechnologists have captured the market nationally and internationally especially in the fields of Agriculture, industries, health sector and to overcome the environmental problems. Socially it has both benefits and risks, and the main theme is to use knowledge for the benefits of mankind and nature. e.g., researchers were able to track the 2014 Ebola epidemic and now COVID-19 pandemic in real-time using DNA sequencing. Pharmaceutical companies are designing new anti-cancer drugs targeted at people with a specific DNA mutation. Entire new fields, such as personalized medicine, owe their existence to DNA sequencing technology. There are job opportunities in the fields of academics(teaching), Research organizations, environmental projects, tissue culture and genetic engineering labs, production of new varieties both in plants and animals, production of vaccines, vitamins, hormones, drugs etc.
