Timeline of bioengineering and biological engineering

ByMegh R. Goyal

In the past, numerous developments have been made in bioengineering, biological engineering, biotechnology, molecular engineering (tissue engineering), nanotechnology, and bionanotechnology. The timeline in this chapter will help the reader to understand the past, present, and future of these focus areas of science. I have tried my best to list the complete timeline in this chapter. The developments or events for the timeline in this chapter were compiled from the information in the books, journals, glossaries, dictionaries, manuals, websites, and personal files of my colleagues. The historical application of biotechnology/bioengineering is provided in the Section 2.2 in the chronological order. These discoveries, inventions, and modifications are evidence of the evolution of these disciplines of science before and after the Christian era.
