What is the scope of industrial microbiology - 1 to 10 of 10 results

After PG in microbiology you had got lot of opportunities in Microbiologists research and development laboratories of government and private hospitals, research organisations, pharmaceutical, food, beverage and chemical industries, agriculture e.t.c. Now as you are not working currently get enrolled for PHD program and try for teaching job. After getting this job keep on applying for company job. You can start apply for both teaching and company jobs. Whatever happen first go in that If you get it it is good if not then continue with your teaching and PHD. As PHD people in the field of microbiology are in lot of demand. You can also move in field like clinical research, forensic science, biotechnology, hospital management, bioinformatics e.t.c . If you are interested to move in career other than microbiology you can ask me. or if you have any other query even then you can ask me.... ► Read more

Hi Raj,

Its an individual choice ..however on job prospective at both level you will be involve in R&D .

Here I will try to tell you few difference which would help you in choosing :

BioC is more intensive when it comes to studying detailed reactions of metabolic pathways (ie-knowing which enzymes catalyze each rxn, exact structures of reactants/products etc.) YOu will need to memorize tons of pathways in third yr, the structures of reactants/products, enzyme names, mechanism, etc. If you can memorize, you will do well and understanding the material in depth

MicB also involved a lot of molecular work, but probably at a more general level - not so much structures and pathways, but a lot of names of different cellular molecules that interact btwn host-pathogen for instance.micb may be a little more "applied science", as it involves a lot of the topics i mentioned earlier and how these are affected in the real world or how we can use microorganisms to our advantage. Microbio probably is more lab oriented !

Now make out what woudl you prefer ..what you would be able to handle !

Let know if I can help you further !

All the best !

both programs require a lot of the same core courses (basic cell bio, basic micro, genetics, orgo)...

Hi Tenzing,

Difference :

Microbiology is the study of microorganisms, which are unicellular or cell-cluster microscopic organisms. This includes eukaryote such as fungi and protists, and prokaryotes, which are bacteria and archaea. Viruses, though not strictly classed as living organisms, are also studied. In short; microbiology refers to the study of life and organisms that are too small to be seen with the naked eye.
Microbiology is a broad term which includes virology, mycology, parasitology, bacteriology and other branches. A microbiologist is a specialist in microbiology.
Microbiology is researched actively, and the field is advancing continually. We have probably only studied about one percent of all of the microbe species on Earth. Although microbes were first observed over three hundred years ago, the field of microbiology can be said to be in its infancy relative to older biological disciplines such as zoology and botany.

Biotechnology is technology based on biology, especially when used in agriculture, food science, and medicine.
Biotechnology combines disciplines like genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology and cell biology, which are in turn linked to practical disciplines like chemical engineering, information technology, and biorobotics. Patho-biotechnology describes the exploitation of pathogens or pathogen derived compounds for beneficial effect.

# Both have good opportunities in India and abroad. If you are interested in research work than Microbiology will be the best for you.

You can do Phd after your master's. Some universities take Mphil passouts for Phd program. If your aim is to be a professor. Its better to sit for NET exam,which you can give after master's. And join as Lecturer and do your Phd side by side. This will help you to gain experience.

Good luck...
