Biotechnology Applications

Biotechnology refers to the technical applications of living organisms or their functions. These applications may be used in engineering, medicine, or agriculture, to name a few. Biotechnology processes and procedures are varied and range from the domestication of animals to genetic engineering. At its core, biotechnology involves the modification of a biological process for a human defined purpose.

Use the Internet, Argosy University library resources, and your textbook to research the field of biotechnology.

Write a paper which includes the following:

  • Evaluate current or future applications of biotechnology in the fields of medicine or agriculture.
  • Provide at least three real-world examples of current or future applications of biotechnology in either of these fields. Present a minimum of three reliable references.

Write a 2–3-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M1_A3.doc. For example, if your name is John Smith, your document will be named SmithJ_M1_A3.doc.

Checklist: Using the CARS Checklist to Evaluate Web Sites

A Web site that is credible, accurate, reasonable, and supported (CARS) should meet the following criteria.


The source is trustworthy; you would consider a print version to be authoritative (for example, an online edition of a respected newspaper or major news magazine).
The argument and use of evidence are clear and logical.
The author’s or sponsor’s credentials are available (visit the home page and look for a link that says “About Us”).
Quality control is evident (spelling and grammar are correct; links are functional).
The source is a known or respected authority; it has organizational support (such as a university, a research institution, or a major news publication).


The site is updated frequently, if not daily (and includes “last-updated” information).
The site is factual, not speculative, and provides evidence for its assertions.
The site is detailed; text appears in full paragraphs.
The site is comprehensive, including archives, links, and additional resources. A search feature and table of contents or tabs allow users to quickly find the information they need.
The site’s purpose includes completeness and accuracy.


The site is fair, balanced, and objective. (Look at comments on a blog or related messages on a news group.)
The site makes its purpose clear (is it selling something? prompting site visitors to sign a petition? promoting a new film?).
The site contains no conflicts of interest.
The site content does not include fallacies or a slanted tone (for more on fallacies, see Chapter 10: Arguments, pp. 188–91).


The site lists sources for its information, providing links where appropriate.
The site clarifies which content it is responsible for and which links are created by unrelated authors or sponsors.
The site provides contact information for its authors and/or sponsors.
If the site is an academic resource, it follows the conventions of a specific citation style (for example, MLA, APA).
