The thrust areas of research in the Department are: drugs and bioactive compounds from the sea; extremophilic (thermophilic/hypersaline/deep-sea/anoxic) microorganisms: biodegradation of oil using micro-organisms risk assessment of genetically engineered organisms; isolation and characterization of enzymes of biotechnological importance from marine organisms; RAPD studies in seaweeds; biological productivity characteristic in the northern Indian Ocean; biodiversity and enzymes
Summer training (4-6 weeks) is mandatory at the end of the second semester and the students are placed in R&D laboratories of nationally recognized institutes and industries.
Almost 90% of our postgraduate students qualify for the CSIR/UGC fellowship and some of them secure a very high ranking at the GATE examination. This is in addition to their achievements at the DBT and ICMR fellowship examinations.
The placement profile of each outgoing batch has also been excellent, with the students successfully gaining positions in nationally as well as internationally renowned institutions.
