Keeping in view the enormous importance of microbes in the field of Biotechnology, a new course "Microbial Biotechnology" has been introduced from July, 2008 under the aegis of "Centre for Emerging Areas in Science and Technology" in the CIL building (third floor) of Panjab University, Chandigarh. The course is targeted to generate active Industry-Academia Interaction. This curriculum has been designed with the aim to prepare industry ready manpower. The course has 20 + 1 (single girl child) seats. The course received tremendous response from the students which can be gauged from the fact that all the twenty one seats of the first batch were filled in the first counseling.
Microbes (or microorganisms) are organisms that are too small to be seen by the unaided eye. They include bacteria, fungi, protozoa, microalgae, and viruses. Microbes live in familiar settings such as soil, water, food, and animal intestines, as well as in more extreme settings such as rocks, glaciers, hot springs, and deep-sea vents. The wide variety of microbial habitats reflects an enormous diversity of biochemical and metabolic traits that have arisen by genetic variation and natural selection in microbial populations.
