Biotechnology relies on the application of scientific and engineering principles to process the materials by biological agents producing goods and services for mankind. There are many applications of Biotechnology in the field of industrial sector, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, food, energy, environment etc.
Department of Biotechnology was established in 1992-93 with a vision to make an impact through research, technology based training and innovation. The department offers, graduate and post-graduate courses in biotechnology. It also offers two introductory courses of biotechnology to under graduate students of other faculties of the university. In addition to academic program the department has laboratories for tissue culture, molecular biology/genetic engineering to contribute in the national food security.
The research activities in the department of Biotechnology are wide ranging, reflecting the diversity of modern biotechnology. The major research areas include plant genomics, alternate energy, industrial biotechnology, functional genomic etc. Faculty members are fully committed to train graduates that are absorbed in different research and professional organizations.
To impart quality education, research, innovation and technology based training.
To promote and strengthen the area of agricultural biotechnology
To develop and apply the basic knowledge of biotechnology for efficient management of environmentally sound and liberal agriculture.
To expand interaction among agriculture, medicine, environment, fisheries, food processing, renewable energy fuels, etc. which are the common denominators of cells and products derived from them.
