Scope of Biotechnology career in Pakistan

Unlike layman’s perception, biotechnology is not just about working in the laboratory wearing white lab coats and preparing medicines to improve the quality of life.

The field is so broad that it has a variety of career options from sales and marketing to research and development, to manufacturing and quality management of drugs and medical devices.
The field of biotechnology combines technology with biological sciences such a agriculture, food sciences, waste management, medicine and in mining industry, although, biotechnology has been around since ancient times, the first advancement was in the field of food sciences, which took place around 5000 BC.  A large number of diverse strains of plants and animals were hybridized to produce greater variety in the species. 

Keeping in view the importance of biotechnology in Pakistan,, a separate entity called the National Commission on Biotechnology has been established, which has initiated several projects for various fields of biotechnology, mainly in the health and agriculture sectors.
