From the Paper:

"The true definition of biotechnology is intent on solving our environment while extracting cures for disease and mastering our destiny in an attempt to improve the human condition. Ultimately we wish to discover everything there is to realize in regard to ourselves and the planet we occupy. Utilizing tools of modern biology whether it is molecular biology, chemistry, genomics, or genetics, we understand the biological phenomenon on a new level. In 2005, the one billionth biotech acre was planted. This is a remarkable milestone in biotechnology that will assist in propelling our findings into the future of this science that involves Earth as the only place we know of, with true life."
