The Institute of Bioscience offers various field of study in the area of biological sciences to provide opportunities for students who are pursuing their studies and to enhance their knowledge and training in research and development (R&D).

Special emphasis is given to R&D in critical areas such as animal, plant and marine based value added products and bio-health. This is achieve using sophisticated equipment and advance research facilities in the institute such as high-end Electron Microscope Instruments, various range of Spectroscopy and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, state of the art of Robotic Proteomic Workstation, various sizes of Bioreactor System DNA Sequencing and Microarray Facility.

The Institute of Bioscience works closely with faculties in UPM whereby the teaching processes are conducted by the relevant faculties and research programmes among postgraduate students are carried out in IBS by experience researchers in multidisciplinary and integrated approaches.

This field deals with utilization of biotechnology tools in cells, tissues, organs, organelles and extracts or molecules from marine plants and animals. The studies focus on the properties and functions of specific pathways, systems and conditions in these organisms, to elucidate their survival, growth, pathological and immunological symptoms, and responses. Establishment of new protocols and processes, and development of new products using marine resources will be emphasized.
