About Centre for Marine Biodiversity and Biotechnology, Postgraduate Research - at Heriot-Watt University

In 1999, we were awarded almost £500,000 to develop the study of the molecular systematics of marine organisms. This has two main goals: first the use of biodiversity and populations of marine organisms for pollution monitoring, and second the exploitation of marine organisms for biotechnological purposes. The unit houses new automated DNA sequencing and other molecular biological equipment as well as dedicated computers for data analysis.

In collaboration with various national and international partners we are conducting research on the molecular systematics of various free-living algae invertebrates, and bacteria, as well as parasites of fish.
