About Us


The BioTalk Magazine was launched in June 2020 with the goal to promote Biotechnology through articles that are accessible and reliable. We aim to build a community of scholars, students and professionals, where all biotechnology enthusiasts can collaborate and network on one platform. We release issues on a monthly basis and cater to a reader base of biotechnology, biological sciences and life sciences fields. We cover recent innovation and developments in our field, opinions on research and trends, journeys of successful biotechnologists and sci-fi movie reviews!

Scientists and students from across the world have recognized our mission and contributed to making our field accessible to everyone. We thank everyone who has been a part of The BioTalk community and welcome all those who wish to make a change.
