Doctoral Programme in Microbiology and Biotechnology

The Doctoral Programme in Microbiology and Biotechnology (MBDP) brings together branches of the entire field of microbiology, i.e., bacteria, archaea, eukaryotic microorganisms and viruses in any environment where microbes can be found. In addition to basic research in microbiology, it includes applied microbiology which is reflected by including microbiologically relevant biotechnology in the program.
