Biotechnology is a branch of applied science that produces products and processes from living organisms and their derivatives. These items and processes are used in healthcare, medicine, biofuels, and environmental protection. Biotechnology stocks are risky investments because biotech companies frequently spend enormous amounts of time and money developing drugs that may never reach the market. A biotech firm's valuation should take into account the size and stage of development of its asset pipeline. Understanding how living organisms function at the molecular level necessitates the integration of several disciplines, including biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, science, and technology.
