As industry names go, "biotech" is unusually evocative, calling to mind clones, lab-grown meat, and those weird cockroaches with robot gear on their backs. In reality, though, biotech refers to processes in which living organisms are utilized to create products--which, yes, robot cockroaches, but also pharmaceuticals, food, and other, perhaps disappointingly practical applications.
Of course, there's nothing disappointing about the biotech field if you're a scientist looking for a job where your work regularly has a real, tangible impact. It's an area that incorporates the study of the human genome, meaning biotech workers have a chance to be at the forefront of discoveries of potentially historic significance. With that in mind: microbiologists, nanotechnologists, and medical animators of the world, click on!
