    A simple definition of biotechnology is application of organism, their cellular, subcellular or molecular components in order to provide goods, services and environmental management.

    Some applications are making of yoghurt, cheese, bread and wine.

    Also making of antibiotics such as penicillin.

    Also single-cell protein manufactured from the fungus Fusarium.

    Genetic enginneering is a technique used to transfer genes from one organism to another.

    For example, insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced by our bodies which controls the amt of blood sugar.

    Biotechnology is the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make useful products, or "any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use" (UN Convention on Biological Diversity).
    Depending on the tools and applications, it often overlaps with the (related) fields of bioengineering and biomedical engineering.
