What is Biotechnology? - Video on biotech innovation, genetics and health care

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - BioTech, MedTech, Gene Therapy and Stem Cells

Biotechnology is the use of the science of genetics: alteration of genetic code by artificial means, and is therefore different from traditional selective breeding. Biotechnology makes the whole digital revolution look almost as nothing. Digital technology changes what we do.

Biotechnology has the power to change who we are. Biotechnology will alter the basis of life on earth - permanently - unless controlled. This could happen if - say - mutant viruses, or bacteria, or fish or reptiles are released into the general environment.

Germ warfare - mutant bugs could wipe out human life

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - BioTech, MedTech, Gene Therapy and Stem Cells

The thought of catching a cold and then getting cancer is horrifying. Such a scenario has come a big step closer - British scientists trying to make new mutant superbugs out of human cancer genes and viruses closely related to strains causing common cold. Although designed to help find cancer cure, the possibility of accidental escape is alarming.

Even more worrying is the thought that a hundred similar or more dangerous experiments may be going on that we have yet to find out about with military or terrorist use as biological or chemical weapons of mass destruction.
