    Biothecnology Biothecnology Presentation Transcript

    • BIOTHECNOLOGY
    • Biotechnology is a field of applied biology that involves the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering, technology, medicine and other fields requiring bioproducts.
    • The concept encompasses a wide range of procedures for modifying living organisms according to human purposes
    • Controversial questions
    • Reproductive issues. These include the use of genetic information in reproductive decision-making and the possibility of genetically altering reproductive cells that may be passed on to future generations. Ethical issues like designed babies and human cloning have also given rise to controversies between and among scientists and bioethicists.
    • Clinical issues. These center on the capabilities and limitations of doctors and other health-service providers, people identified with genetic conditions, and the general public in dealing with genetic information.
    • Effects on social institutions. Genetic tests reveal information about individuals and their families. Thus, test results can affect the dynamics within social institutions, particularly the family.
    • Conceptual and philosophical implications regarding human responsibility, free will vis-à-vis genetic determinism, and the concepts of health and disease.
