Marine Biodiversity and Biotechnology


Course Description

The biodiversity of the marine environment is of enormous importance to humans as a resource for food, pharmaceuticals and ecosystem services. The School's Centre for Marine Biodiversity and Biotechnology (CMBB) focuses on research using traditional and newly developing molecular methods to study these important marine resources and products. The rapid loss of biodiversity both on land and in the sea makes it especially important that good knowledge is obtained to enable the appropriate management of the lesser known marine resources.

The course covers a broad range of issues in four taught core modules enabling students to choose four other taught modules from a variety of options available within the School and elsewhere in the University's programme of MSc courses.

CORE MODULES

Marine Resources and Sustainability
Diversity of Marine Organisms
