Biotechnology's unique advantages

From cell to product

In biotechnology, living cells such as bacteria, yeast, or filamentous fungi are employed for the production of compounds. Industrial biotechnology combines biological and engineering knowledge to create products.

For thousands of years, the ability of the baker’s yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to produce ethanol has been harnessed for the production of alcoholic beverages like beer, wine, and sake. Today, molecular engineering of microorganisms enables the biotechnological production of a wide range of products, replacing non-sustainable chemical synthesis processes and alleviating animal suffering in factory farming.
