A course oriented towards Biology and Environmental Biotechnology

The Master’s degree “Biology and Environmental Biotechnology” provides a high level of competence in the biology of the organisms that build our environment, some of which are targets for biotechnology, including plants, microalgae, fungi and bacteria. The degree cultivates knowledge in genomics and molecular genetics, biochemistry, interaction biology, as well as in toxicology, nutrition, bioenergy, bioremediation, plant breeding and biotechnology of fungi and bacteria. A place is also given to the evaluation of biological risks and to the interactions between biology and society. Research internships are offered in the academic or industrial environment.

Research based teaching

BIAM researchers participate in teaching Master’s courses dedicated to the molecular, biochemical and genetic aspects of the biology of organisms that build our environment (microorganisms, fungi, algae, plants). These BIAM researchers have experience in the fields of plant biology, bioenergy and bioremediation. Researchers from the INRAE Genetics and Improvement of Fruits and Vegetables laboratory, the INRAE Biotechnology of Filamentous Fungi laboratory, and the CNRS Protein Engineering laboratory also participate in the Master’s course. 

Who is this training for ?

Master’s courses are given to small classes of students (maximum 25) selected on the basis of their background and professional ambitions. The professions targeted are those of an engineer in biotechnology and the environment, plant improvement, regulatory authorities or the pursuit of a doctorate.
