Biology, chemistry, physics, engineering and information technology to develop tools and products to apply to living cells/organisms.
Genetic Engineering Genetic engineering is the study of knowledge obtained from genetics to alter the reproduction and hereditary processes of organisms. It deals in cloning, in-vitro fertilization, species hybridization or direct manipulation of the genetic material itself by the recombinant DNA technique. Plant Tissue Culture Functions in the field of in-vitro regeneration and propagation of platelets, a Tissue Culture specialist may also be involved in plant germ plasma conservation. Plant Genetics Activities to improve plants by evolving new horticultural varieties through hybridization, this work is generally carried out in the laboratories.

SKILLS REQUIRED FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY
According to a report by MassBioEd, life science companies are becoming increasingly concerned with finding individuals who possess not only the technical knowledge, but the business skills to help implement strategies, develop industry partnerships, and lead a product and/or organization to success.
According to Burning Glass Labor Insight, these non-science specific competencies are considered the most in-demand soft skills by biotechnology employer:
Employers are looking for these softer skills as much as technical skills and scientific knowledge to help bring their products to market. On your resumé, try to illustrate how your mastery of these soft skills has benefitted your past organizations in terms of growth, efficiency, and productivity, adding data as “proof” wherever possible
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY
Job duties for those in biotechnology careers can vary significantly by the job as well. In a general sense, though, these professionals perform duties like:
Synthesizing chemicals in a lab
Conduct research and submit it to industry
Assessing the effects of chemicals in everyday life
Overseeing complex projects
Maintaining lab equipment
Produce reports on project development
