Biotechnology
BIOTECHNOLOGY is the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make 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, Art. 2). Depending on the tools and applications, it often overlaps with the (related) fields of bioengineering , biomedical engineering , biomanufacturing , molecular engineering , etc. For thousands of years, humankind has used biotechnology in agriculture , food production , and medicine . The term is largely believed to have been coined in 1919 by Hungarian engineer Károly Ereky . In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, biotechnology has expanded to include new and diverse sciences such as genomics , recombinant gene techniques, applied immunology , and development of pharmaceutical therapies and diagnostic tests

Life Science
The LIST OF LIFE SCIENCES comprise the branches of science that involve the scientific study of living organisms – such as microorganisms , plants , animals , and human beings – as well as related considerations like bioethics . While biology remains the centerpiece of the life sciences, technological advances in molecular biology and biotechnology have led to a burgeoning of specializations and interdisciplinary fields. Some life sciences focus on a specific type of life. For example, zoology is the study of animals , while botany is the study of plants. Other life sciences focus on aspects common to all or many life forms, such as anatomy and genetics . Yet other fields are interested in technological advances involving living things, such as bio-engineering . Another major, though more specific, branch of life sciences involves understanding the mind – neuroscience . The life sciences are helpful in improving the quality and standard of life

Bioengineering
BIOLOGICAL ENGINEERING or BIO-ENGINEERING (including biological systems engineering ) is the application of concepts and methods of biology (and secondarily of physics , chemistry , mathematics , and computer science ) to solve real-world problems related to life sciences or the application thereof, using engineering 's own analytical and synthetic methodologies and also its traditional sensitivity to the cost and practicality of the solution(s) arrived at. In this context, while traditional engineering applies physical and mathematical sciences to analyze, design and manufacture inanimate tools, structures and processes , biological engineering uses primarily the rapidly developing body of knowledge known as molecular biology to study and advance applications of organisms and to create biotechnology . This may eventually include the possibility of biologically engineering machines and 3D printing that re-order matter at a molecular scale

Biomedical Engineering
BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING (BME) is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes (e.g. diagnostic or therapeutic). This field seeks to close the gap between engineering and medicine , combining the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to advance health care treatment, including diagnosis , monitoring , and therapy . Biomedical engineering has only recently emerged as its own study, compared to many other engineering fields. Such an evolution is common as a new field transitions from being an interdisciplinary specialization among already-established fields, to being considered a field in itself. Much of the work in biomedical engineering consists of research and development , spanning a broad array of subfields (see below)

Agriculture
AGRICULTURE or FARMING is the cultivation and breeding of animals , plants and fungi for food , fiber , biofuel , medicinal plants and other products used to sustain and enhance human life. Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization , whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that nurtured the development of civilization . The study of agriculture is known as agricultural science . The history of agriculture dates back thousands of years, and its development has been driven and defined by greatly different climates , cultures , and technologies. Industrial agriculture based on large-scale monoculture farming has become the dominant agricultural methodology

Engineer
ENGINEERS are people who design, construct and test structures, materials and systems while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulation, safety, and cost. The word _engineer_ ( Latin
Latin
_ingeniator_ ) is derived from the Latin
Latin
words _ingeniare_ ("to contrive, devise") and _ingenium_ ("cleverness"). The foundation education of an engineer is typically a 4-year bachelor's degree or in some countries, a master's degree in an engineering discipline plus 4–6 years peer-reviewed professional practice culminating in a project report or thesis. The work of engineers forms the link between scientific discoveries and their subsequent applications to human and business needs and quality of life

Károly Ereky
KáROLY EREKY (German : Karl Ereky; October 20, 1878 – June 17, 1952) was a Hungarian agricultural engineer. The term 'biotechnology ' was coined by him in 1919. He is regarded by some as the "father" of biotechnology.

as Károly Wittmann. His father was István Wittmann and his mother Mária Dukai Takách. (Among her relatives was dukai Judit Takács (1795-1836) who was the first Hungarian female poet.) In 1893 he changed his name to Ereky. He had three brothers Jenő, Ferenc and István. Ereky finished grammar school at Sümeg and Székesfehérvár. He attended the Technical University of Budapest

Science
SCIENCE (from Latin _scientia_, meaning "knowledge") :58 is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe . Contemporary science is typically subdivided into the natural sciences , which study the material universe ; the social sciences , which study people and societies; and the formal sciences , which study logic and mathematics . The formal sciences are often excluded as they do not depend on empirical observations. Disciplines which use science, like engineering and medicine , may also be considered to be applied sciences . From classical antiquity through the 19th century, science as a type of knowledge was more closely linked to philosophy than it is now, and in the Western world the term "natural philosophy " once encompassed fields of study that are today associated with science, such as astronomy , medicine, and physics

Genomics
Within the field of molecular biology , GENOMICS is the study of genomes , the complete set of genetic material within an organism. Genomics involves the sequencing and analysis of genomes. Genomics is also concerned with the structure, function, comparison, and evolution of genomes. In contrast to genetics, which refers to the study of individual genes and their roles in inheritance, genomics uses high throughput DNA sequencing and bioinformatics to assemble, and analyze the function and structure of entire genomes. The field also includes studies of intragenomic (within the genome) phenomena such as heterosis (hybrid vigour), epistasis (effect of one gene on another), pleiotropy (one gene affecting more than one trait) and other interactions between loci and alleles within the genome. Advances in genomics have triggered a revolution in systems biology which facilitates the understanding of complex biological systems such as the brain
