The World Biotech Tour (WBT) is a multi-year initiative visiting science centres all over the world to bring biotechnology to life. By involving students, teachers, science-centre professionals and the general public in hands-on activities and discussions about key issues pertaining to biotechnology, the WBT will demonstrate the relevance, excitement and wonder of biotechnology in a fun and exciting way. This year in Milan the Museum will be an opportunity for the public to investigate various fields of biotechnology: from bioremediation to biotechnology for agriculture, to applications in the medical field and for biocompatible materials.
