Biotechnology greenhouse. View of experimental plants being watered by a technician in a biotechnology greenhouse. It is in green- houses such as this that plants may be infected with engineered viruses that produce proteins for drug production. Plants themselves may also be genetically engineered for a variety of purposes. Genetic engineering has opened up a wealth of agricultural possibilities including conferring resistance to plants from pests and pollution, and to enable higher crop yields. Photographed at the Scottish Crop Research Institute in Dundee, Scotland.
