Pharmaceutical Biotechnology

The field of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology concentrates on the development of biotechnological products and applications that are useful for medical drug production. This involves the use of genetical engineering to create pharmaceutically relevant proteins and low molecular substances with the help of biological systems.
