Most common type of cancer is melanoma which occurs abundantly worldwide. Melanin is a skin pigment that is produced by skin melanocytes in case or malignant melanoma that effects the melanocytes and then cause the faults in pigment production. The occurrence of melanoma is most common in people with light colored skin on exposure to sunlight as compared to darker ones. The basic purpose of this study was to determine the awareness among the biotechnology students about the melanoma. A questionnaire based on 15 questions about melanoma was developed and being fulfilled by postgraduate students. Survey shows that 81% of total students thought the major cause of melanoma is not virus. On average 56-67% students thought that melanoma is either a genetic disease or it arises due to metabolic problems. This survey among biotechnology students of M. Phil. shows that some are aware and some are not aware about melanoma.
