Hi there,

Describe the role of bacteria in biotechnology and genetic engineering.

I'd appreciate the help. Thanks.

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "bacteria biotechnology" to get these possible sources:

I hope this helps. If not, you can expand the search by adding the key words, "genetic engineering," or ask more questions. Thanks for asking.
