Bio-Technology

What is Biotechnology?

The concept of Biotechnology employed in lot of traditional and modern practices (Eg. Brewing and Baking bread).  Living organisms are usually utilized for this processes in their natural form or further developed by breeding, while the more advanced form of biotechnology will commercially involve a more advanced alteration of the biological system or organism.   The development of genetic engineering in 1970s extends the frontier of the Research in Biotechnology. The field developed rapidly because of the new possibility to make changes in the organism’s genetic material (DNA). Today, Biotechnology covers many different disciplines includes Genetics, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology. New technologies and products are developed every year within the areas of medicine (Development of new medicines and therapies), Agriculture (Development of genetically modified plants, Biofuels), Industrial Biotechnology (Production of chemicals, paper, textiles and Food) and Environmental Biotechnology (Biodegradation).

Vision of the Department

Our vision is to produce competent Biotechnologists who can employ premium processes and applications which will profoundly influence existing paradigm of Agriculture, Industry, Healthcare and restoration of environment providing sustainable competitive edge to present society.
