of Biotechnology was established in the year 1997. It conducts the courses
of M.Sc. Biotechnology and Ph.D. program in Biotechnology. Course is
designed with scientific and technological approaches; course imparts the
training and teaching in advanced Molecular and Biochemical Techniques
applicable Animal Biotechnology, Plant Biotechnology, Microbial
Biotechnology, Food Biotechnology so as to make the student more
competent towards the commercial aspects of biotechnology. Course includes
the total 12 papers for 3 semesters starting with basic biological science
and technology in I and II semester to advanced and applied areas in III
semester. Studies are sending to various National Institutes/Laboratories
/ Universities and industries, Biotechnology companies for the six month
dissertation cum training work in IV Semester, for the practical working.
Students from other institutes and Universities are also doing
projects / dissertations at Department of Biotechnology. It is great pride
of Department that Prof. B.N. Johri, Emeritus Scientist (CSIR) was awarded
the P.C. Ray Fellowship by MPCST, for his great achievement of Scientific
Research in the field of Agricultural Biotechnology and Microbial
Biotechnology. Department has completed two international collaborative
projects viz. Indo-Swiss and Indo-German and one National CSIR Project
under his prime investigation. Department is also running project on
Medicinal Plants Diversity under the investigation of Dr. Anil Prakash.
Department is conducting research on various areas like Agricultural
Biotechnology, Mushroom Biotechnology, Microbial Biotechnololgy,

Bioinformatics centre, one of the Sub-DIC, funded by Department
of Biotechnology, Govt. of India, New Delhi, was started in the year
2002-2003, under the Department of Biotechnology. Major objectives of the
centre are to provide the computational facility and basic training in
Bioinformatics to students, scholars and faculties in the fields of life
sciences. It is providing services like Internet facilities, one line
literature search, Hardware and software installation and data analysis.
Centre is working in the areas of Microbial Genomics and
providing the facilities to the students for the projects / dissertations
work in the field of bioinformatics. Centre organizes minimum two
workshops cum training programs in Bioinformatics in every academic year.
Total 12 workshops and training were conducted during last 5 years.
Centre has got enough infrastructures to carry out the training and
research in Bioinformatics. Centre has its own web site
and network of two servers, 41 desktop PCs, 100 mbps LAN and 512 kbps
leased line internet connection.
