Bio Talks 7.0

Covering over 70% of the Earth’s surface, the Oceans represent an incredibly diverse, yet understudied ecosystem. 
Housing millions of microorganisms like bacteria, fungi, viruses and archaea, which are famously known to mediate key ecosystem processes in these marine systems, it accounts for a majority of the biodiversity present. 


As the 7th edition of the BioTalks series, SBE-VIT presents an intriguing session on Introduction to Marine Microbiology with our speaker Dr. Belle Damodara Shenoy, a mycologist working as a Principal Scientist at CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography Regional Centre, Visakhapatnam, India!
