Microbiology is a research oriented field, deals with several
disciplines like Virology, Bacteriology, Mycology
Immunology, RDT, Microbial Genetics, Biochemistry,
Physiology, Extremophiles, Fermentation Technology etc .
Recent trends from the industry focus on production of
totally new eukaryotic compounds like insulin, interferon and
other recombinant products, using microorganisms in large
quantities. There are a number of probiotic microbes being
used in the manufacturing of various foods and
The career profile and scope of microbiology is immense due
to its ability to control all critical points of many fields like Medical & Health care, Dairy, Pharmaceutical, Water Industry, Agriculture, Nanotechnology etc. Apart from this, a microbiologist can apply for patents for their innovations and may sell it to the respective industries in millions of dollars which may develop many more microbial industries such as clinical, dairy etc.
