BioBytes: Industrial Enzymes

Biotechnology is everywhere you look - even in places you might not expect.  Take a closer look at  your laundry detergent,  blue jeans, vitamins, or notepad.  Chances are, they contain or were manufactured with industrial enzymes.  Enzymes are found naturally in most living things.  And with the help of biotechnology, they are now being used in numerous applications in the place of traditional chemical processes, which, unlike enzymes, are not always environmentally friendly.  Dr. Targan explains how industrial enzymes work  to change the way in which many of the products we use on a daily basis are utilized and produced.
