Abstract: Polysaccharides, especially from marine algae, find many major applications in the field of biotechnology. Their applications in biotechnology are due to their gelling properties and encapsulating capabilities. Agar, agarose, alginates and carrageenan are the polysaccharides that are used commonly in biotechnology. The uses of polysaccharides in biotechnology include gelelectrophoresis, molecular sieving, gene fragment separation, gene mapping and immobilization of cells and enzymes. In this article, the common polysaccharides of biotechnological importance, their sources, structural features and their biotechnological applications are reviewed.
