Bioengineering transplants the methods of conventional engineering sciences to organic materials, also drawing on findings from other disciplines, such as informatics and genetics. The highly complex design plans of biology are becoming decipharable, allowing bioengineering to achieve the targeted manipulation of foods, tissue structures and even complete life-forms. Biotechnology can be understood as an inversion of this principle, and is concerned with using organisms or patterns from nature (bionics) in technical applications. The interplay between biology and construction technology is gradually blurring the lines between organic and inorganic building blocks, and finding its way into our everyday lives.
