~ The primary aim of introducing the term was to avoid unquestioningly subsuming biotechnological products under nature and equating nature with life. Biofacts show the traces of culture and technology. ~

[In philosophy and sociology, a biofact is a being that is both an artifact and living being, or both natural and artificial. This being has been created by purposive human action but exists by processes of growth. The word is a neologism coined from the combination of the words bios and artifact.
There are sources who cite some creations of genetic engineering as examples of biofacts.
