    Abstract

    Advances in technology are rapidly improving the range of available biotechnological tools and applications. Interfacial opportunities, such as those combining biomedical improvements with aspects of engineering, computing and innovative biomaterials are at the forefront of these enhancements. Personalised and predictive screening, pre-disease and biomarker identification, gene therapy and genome editing as well as large scale analysis of data from single cell sequencing and digital PCR screening programmes are being used in new approaches to earlier disease detection, rapid point of care diagnostics, increase understanding and improve outcomes. Multi-disciplinary approaches are benefitting all areas of biotechnology, from synthetic biology to microbial community dynamics and new product development, as innovative applications combine elements of novel technologies to address previously intractable problems. These ‘translational biotechnology’ applications combine ingenuity, creativity and complexity by building upon the torrent of molecular and cellular data available and will benefit mankind, society and the environment for decades to come.
