 en Biotechnology in Mexico
Galindo, Dr. Enrique


The level of Mexican biotechnology is high. Mexico has first-line scientists in many fields, including modern biotechnology. It has many research institutions of excellence that work on biotechnological topics. More than three hundred scientists are dedicated full time in Mexico to study different biotechnological aspects. There are many high quality postgraduate programs that prepare new biotechnologists. Besides the large number of enterprises dedicated to the production of alcoholic beverages and dairy products, there are more than seventy companies in Mexico manufacturing most of the more than one hundred totally biotechnological products found in the Mexican market. There are also companies with important technological capabilities that have placed totally Mexican-made pharmaceuticals in the market using genetic engineering techniques. A particularly dynamic entrepreneurial sector using biotechnological techniques is dedicated to the treatment of waste water and residual gases and to the micropropagation of plant species.
