Here are my results from the interview I conducted.

Question: What does biotechnology mean to you?

Drew: I’m not sure what biotechnology even means but I’ll take a guess. I think that biotechnology means the use of organisms, such as the human body, to enhance technology.

Question: Are in favor of further research in this field?

Drew: Yeah, I dont see why we shouldnt take advantage of it.

Question: Why do you feel this way?

Drew: I’m in favor of using any technology that might benefit me one day. There may come a day when I may need something that only biotechnology can provide. I wouldn’t want to shoot down a technology that could help people out.

Question: What is your Major?

Me: Are you in favor of industrial research in this field?

Jon: Sure, just think it needs to be done ethically.

Me: Can you say why you feel this way?

Jon: I feel that any field of technology is neither good nor bad. All technology has the ability to help humanity and that same technology possesses the ability to destory us as well. But as for biotechnology, if it is implented ethically, I feel that the benefits outweigh the possible risks.

Me: What is your major?

Jon: Civil engineering.
