Industry Overview:
  The life sciences industry (biotechnology or biotech) seems to be the technology of the future. Across its rainbow of specialties – red biotechnology (medical applications), blue (marine and aquatic), green (agricultural), and white (industrial) – biotech is a forward-thinking field, largely concerned with collaborating with nature to make the world a better place.

Because of its close connection to working with nature instead of against it, the biotechnology industry stands on the frontlines of overcoming many of our major societal concerns. It allows us to increase agricultural yields while simultaneously reducing farming’s environmental impact. It allows us to treat previously untreatable illnesses, and to treat other diseases without introducing synthesized chemicals to the body. Biotechnology is used in ecological treatment, as well as in industrial processes in order to reduce their carbon footprint.

Common Applications:
  • Agricultural biotechnology (green biotechnology)
  • Pharmaceutical and medical biotechnology (red biotechnology)
  • Industrial biotechnology (white biotechnology)
  • Manufacturing
  • Alternative energy / bioenergy
  • Biomaterials
  • Bioinformatics
  • Bioremediation, biotransformation, and biodegradation

Ropella is probably one of the best vendor partners that I have ever worked with - just in terms of the quality of search that was done.  It was fun, thorough and overall a great experience.
