Price on request
The Jadavpur University offers a number of courses.One of the courses is M.Phil. Programme in Environmental Science(Commercial enzymes from bacteria of the Sundarbans)
This Course is offered by the School of Energy Studies
In order to impart higher education in the field of environmental studies, the University Grants Commission sanctioned post graduate and M. Phil. courses under the special category “Emerging Areas” in several Universities in India. Jadavpur University was the first University in West Bengal to offer M. Phil. in 1985 as “M.Phil. Programme in Environmental Science”. This programme has been merged with School of Environmental Studies in 2005 and is functioning as a teaching activity of the School under the Faculty of Science. From being a part-time evening course since its inception in 1985, this course was transformed into a full-time course in 2001.
Marine enzyme biotechnology can offer novel biocatalysts with properties like high salt tolerance, hyperthermostability, barophilicity, cold adaptivity and ease in large scale cultivation. Exotic locations have been accessed for the search of novel enzymes. Scientists have isolated proteases and carbohydrases from deep sea hydrothermal vents. Cold active metabolic enzymes from psychrophilic marine microorganisms have received considerable research attention. Marine symbiont microorganisms growing in association with animals and plants were shown to produce enzymes of commercial interest. Microorganisms isolated from sediment and sea water have been the most widely studied; proteases, carbohydrases and peroxidases being noteworthy.
