Abstract

Biotechnology refers to the use of living organisms or their products to modify human health and the human environment. It also includes the commercial utilization of microbes and its products. Microorganisms play a crucial role in different fields such as biocontrol, antibiofouling agents, fermentation and also environmental remediation. Isolation of microorganisms with biotechnological potential from the arid region is of significant importance. In this chapter, the present status of biotechnology in Oman and the possibility of utilizing biotechnology to solve some of the problems in the environment are discussed.
