The Fourth Industrial Revolution and Technologies in Comics
- Book Intro
Futurists argue that biotechnology will realize the human desire to live in a healthy, clean environment without resource constraints. Biotechnology is a field of applied science that aims to enhance human welfare and deals with all forms of organisms in the ecosystem, including microorganisms, plants, animals, and insects. It crosscuts a wide array of topics, including medicine, agriculture, fishing, and environment. Recently, these areas of studies are fusing and further developing with digital technologies, such as communications technology, nanotechnology, and environmental technology.
This volume introduces basic biotechnology concepts, such as cells, chromosomes, and DNA. It also goes into DNA fingerprinting and barcodes, genetic recombination, stem cells, cloning, and nanotechnology, and further discusses the implications of biotechnology for humanity and the environment. "The Future Society and Professions with Biotechnology" explores how our lives will be impacted by biotechnology.
