About Biotechnology Department
In India, the biotechnology teaching programme was initiated by a combined effort of UGC and Department of Biotechnology in 1985. Biotechnology has achieved the rare feat of combining all living organism plants, animals and micro-organism, into a single gene pool. Genes can now be transferred across phylogenetic boundaries giving man unlimited power to tailor them to his choice. This has made biotechnology indispensable in such diverse fields as agriculture, industry, and medicine and environmental.
The Biotechnology is a challenging and demanding course, which requires above average intellectual and dedicated inputs, both by the students and the teachers. The course contents of our department highly specialized and require very clear and fundamental inputs from basic and advanced biology, applied biology and technology.
