The phrase "Biotech Era" is used to reference biotechnology as the use of 
living organisms to produce engineered products that can modify health or 
the environment through molecular, cell and structural biologysuch as 
recombinant DNA-based drugs, gene therapy, monoclonal antibodies, 
engineered proteins and tissues, liposomes and other drug delivery systems, 
and agricultural as well as industrial products. (ref. Dr. Authur 
Levine).  But this does not adequately describe the methods for developing 
the transhuman -posthuman body/mind (material (embodied) or immaterial) and 
tools or methods for protecting/sustaining the environment.

What phrase or term is used to reference the era of using biotech, 
nanotech, AI, AGI, and robotics to produce engineered products that can 
modify health or the environment?

If you draw a circle in the sand and study only what's inside the circle, 
then that is a closed-system perspective. If you study what is inside the 
circle and everything outside the circle, then that is an open system 
perspective. - Buckminster Fuller
