This chapter addresses issues related to conceptualizing and measuring modern biotechnology, thereby raising questions of definitions, methodology and data. This chapter argues that behind many of the empirical and comparative issues lie fundamental problems of conceptualization of the empirical phenomena. Addressing these conceptual problems is important for analytical progress, but also for decision-makers in government policy, universities and firms.
