Department of Biotechnology

The Department of Biotechnology was founded in 2006 with a vision to be recognized as an academic department of national reputation and to offer cutting edge, interdisciplinary and most-sought after courses in Biotechnology. Besides UG and PG courses students are also pursuing their Ph.D with faculty members as their supervisors. The department constantly provides the latest developments in different fields of science along with the core subjects. The faculty from different disciplines of biotechnology is the strength of the department. In the year 2015, department has also started M.Sc. in Food and Nutrition. The department actively engages in community based programs for imparting nutrition & health related knowledge to all the sections of society. The Department of Biotechnology organizes national and international conferences annually.

Plant Tissue Culture Lab
The department is highly equipped with instrumentation worth more than 1 crore. All the science departments were further strengthened by attachment with a central instrumentation lab established with funding from UGC, New Delhi. The lab is equipped with major state of art instruments like Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS), HPLC, GC, Thermal Cycler, Ultra Sonicator, Refrigerated Centrifuge, Fluorescence Spectrophotometer, Infra-Red Spectrophotometer, Electrochemical Work Station, Transilluminator, Millipore Water Purification System etc. All Classrooms are Equipped with LCD Projectors for Teaching and Seminars. The students of the department are placed in various industries, academic and research organizations.
