Although human beings have exploited the more traditional biotechnology for centuries, it is only in the XX Century that we could discover and carry out, for instance in the therapeutic field, the massive production of antibiotics that have resulted in an explosive increase in life expectancy of the inhabitants of the planet which has doubled and even tripled in all countries.
