Biotechnology is any approach that makes or modifies a product for a practical purpose using living organisms or chemicals from these creatures. Biotechnology can be used to treat a wide range of organisms, from viruses and bacteria to plants and animals, and it is rapidly becoming a standard part of modern medicine, agriculture, and business. Agriculture and the natural world are studied in agricultural biotechnology, with a focus on the connections between food production, the environment, science, and society. Agricultural biotechnologies are increasingly being used in crops, livestock, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture and agro-industries to reduce hunger and poverty, aid climate change adaptation, and preserve natural resource bases. Scientists use a variety of technologies in modern agricultural biotechnology to better understand and control the genetic make-up of organisms for use in the production or processing of agricultural products.
