Strategy in Marine Biotechnology
The non-food sector of marine biotechnology offers phenomenal opportunities for process and product development. In aquaculture biotechnology relating to environmental applications and topics related to drug discovery and development, genomic and proteomic applications, biomaterials and bioengineering with biomedical applications need to be explored. The untapped microbes having incredible application in food, fisheries, medicine industry and agriculture and for novel compounds need pursuation. The emphasis is required to study the uniqueness of the marine ecosystem and its diversity of life forms for critical source of products that would included food, bioactive compounds, and biomaterials having medical and industrial application.
