Department of Biotechnology

About the Department:

Biotechnology is an inter-disciplinary science aiming at the application of Biological Sciences to create genetically modified marketable products. This field has enormous economic potential and has spawned novel industries and improved the profitability of established ones through biological means, which consume less energy and depend on renewable resources, protect the environment and above all improves the quality of life. The M. Sc. Biotechnology programme in the college of science was started from the academic year 2000- 2001 as a self-financing course with an interdisciplinary approach to prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need for leadership in the frontier areas of biotechnology and other allied fields. Department of Genetics is serving as a nodal Department to run this course.
