M.Phil Marine Biotechnology

M.Phil. Marine Biotechnology at AMET University is a research program where a M.Phil Scholar needs to undergo course work for one semester and project work for the second semester. This degree would hasten the candidates to pursue PhD and also to make him eligible for teaching career in government and private educational institutions. As a subject Marine Biotechnology holds much scope both in research and teaching. Since very few institutes are offering Marine Biotechnology courses in India and due to the fact that this sector is taking grand leap, the demand for teaching professionals in Marine Biotechnology would go higher. In other case, the face of research on Marine Biotechnology was changed in the last one decade. Researchers are concentrating more on biologically active molecules from Oceans mainly to use them as lead molecules to develop novel drugs. Marine Biotechnology has widened its arms to various fields such as drug discovery, food production, bioproducts industry, bioengineering, environmental monitoring, biofuels etc. In this scenario, a M.Phil Degree in Marine Biotechnology would strengthen your profile if you are aspiring either a teaching or research profession. The curriculum for M.Phil Marine Biotechnology has given balanced emphasis on both the uniqueness of Marine Biotechnology and the basic essence of Biotechnology.

M.Phil Marine Microbiology

M.Phil., Marine Microbiology Similar to M.Phil, Marine Biotechnology a M.Phil scholar in Marine Microbiology needs to undergo course work for one semester and project work for the second semester. Marine Microbiology is an evergreen subject and now has been realized as the need of the hour. An estimate says that only 1% of the total microorganisms in the Marine Environment are cultured which implies the immense scope of Marine Microbiology. Nearly 60% of the microbially derived drugs are from marine microorganisms. Aquaculture has been now identified as the prime source of future protein needs in the food sector. With an annual fish production of approximately six million tons in 2003, India ranks fourth in global fish production and second in aquaculture. The seafood world market has doubled within the last decade reaching US$49.32 billion. India’s share in the world seafood market is 2.4 per cent. Hence, the sea food processing industry and sea food exporting industry is in need of huge manpower to produce and certify the sea foods in compliance with international regulations. A highly competitive course like M.Phil Marine Microbiology at AMET University would make you fit enough to join in the Blue Revolution.
