Agricultural scientists are concerned with all aspects of plant and animal life.

They are
engaged in both laboratory-based and field-based research. Scientists work for improving
crop produce, for environment protection, and they work in the testing and quality control of
foodstuffs, drugs and farm products. Agricultural scientists may specialise in one of the
following areas: Agronomy, Horticulture, Plant Breeding, and Animal Science Research.

Biochemists study the chemical combinations & reactions in functions such as growth,
metabolism, reproduction, heredity as well as the effect of environment on living tissue.
Biochemists are also involved in the study of structure and functions of enzymes, proteins,
carbohydrates, fats and the process of metabolism, the molecular basis of the action of genes.

A bundle of techniques applied to living cells is what we call Biotechnology.
Biotechnologists engineer these living cells to produce a particular product of improved
quality. Biotechnology is the exploitation of natural resources at the microbial and molecular
level to produce a product of improved quality for the benefit of mankind. The work Bio
technologists do is in a variety of sectors eg. agriculture, pharmaceuticals, medicine,
environment etc.
