Marine Biotechnologies



This specialisation provides a mastery of the general knowledge and methodologies required for the biotechnological valorisation of biological resources, while at the same time providing knowledge of the business world, the regulatory framework, and English, which is necessary for commercial and professional exchanges.


The specialisation includes 3 courses carried by 2 universities, UBO (Université de Bretagne Occidentale) and UBS (Université Bretagne Sud).


Biomolecules, Microorganisms, Bioprocesses

This Master’s degree provides the skills to exploit and enhance marine biodiversity (bacteria, macro-algae, sea sponges, starfish…), the source of a multitude of metabolites with varied biological properties.

The speciality is focused on the sustainable and eco-friendly exploitation of marine resources in order to develop new techniques or processes inspired by living organisms.

Chemical ecology (distance learning)

Chemical ecology brings together a set of scientific disciplines whose objective is to understand the role of chemical compounds as mediators of interactions between the different organisms that populate ecosystems, from bacteria to animals, including plants. It is at the heart of the fundamental concerns of studies on the functioning, diversity and evolution of ecosystems.
