Research in biotechnology and bioengineering allowed humans to make significant progress in understanding the human body and developing medical solutions.

As the amount of knowledge progressed over the years, experiments became more complex, required a broader range of tools, and implied recording data from multiple sources. For example, in neuro-engineering, it is now common to combine invasive recording of neuron activity (surgically inserted electrodes) with precise movement recording (camera) while stimulating with optogenetics (laser targeting genetically modified neurons) and sound. While this kind of complexity is impressive and led to amazing discoveries, biotechnology research projects stay mostly a single-human job…
