The sea is an immensely rich source of organisms and habitats, many of which remain largely unexplored. Innovative approaches are required to exploit this underutilized resource. Oman has extensive and diverse marine resources and a long maritime tradition, and therefore occupies a key position on the map of prospective biotechnology nations.


The Center of Excellence in Marine Biotechnology will focus on capacity building and will make optimal use of Omani marine resources. A sustainable development in Oman will thereby be created that will encourage future growth and prosperity.
