Microbiology-based research models have continued to provide solutions to various fundamental and forensic queries in Metabolism factors, Genetics, Cell formation and microorganisms. This has elevated the recognition and scope of Microbiologists in most of the applied science areas. Microorganisms are responsible to degrade oil in oil spills, pesticides, and herbicides and produce energy in living organisms. Besides this significance, microorganisms also play a vital role in identifying the genetics, species and culture of the creatures.

Sandip University offers you a 2-year, full-time Masters Degree in Microbiology which is divided into 4 semesters. Each semester continues for a period of 6 months followed by a term test. Microbiology as a study stream for science graduates has emerged as a key biological science segment entailing the detailed study of microorganisms and the structure of molecular biology of the creatures for the research purpose. Microbiologists study these organisms with the help of microscopes and other advanced techniques. The various tools used for research purpose help the scientists to study and understand the evolutionary stages of microbes and their habitat. Culturing is a process that describes the growth of microorganisms.
