Abstract: Marine biotechnology is the creation of products and processes from marine organisms through the application of the techniques of biotechnology, molecular and cellular biology, and bioinformatics. This is a scientifically fascinating and economically expanding field of science. No ecosystems provide greater genetic diversity or possibilities for new products and processes than the world's marine environments. Marine organisms, from bacteria to eukaryotes are certainly a source of molecules of great interest in biotechnology. Today, marine biotechnology has numerous applications from the production of lifesaving drugs to better food and conservation of organic waste. This article provides a selective overview of past achievements, present scenario and future directions of marine biotechnology
