M. Sc. Biotechnology Programme

The two year (four semesters) Post-Graduate Programme has interdisciplinary approach with participation of faculty/researchers across the University. Hands-on training with professional and management skills are keys to our teaching pedagogy. This Programme focuses on responsibility building and ethics in research and policy. We are equally giving emphasis on integrated approaches in human health, transgenic crop development, environmental sciences and informatics. The course also comprises of project dissertation, presentation and comprehensive viva-voce as part of evaluation system. Students also visit major research institutes in the form of educational tour and Biotechnology industries to learn various aspects of product developments. One of the major goals of the Biotechnology Programme is to engage students by actively involving them in cutting-edge research.

Currently, departmental research is mainly focussed in the areas of Cancer Biology, Autoimmune Diseases, Fungal Diseases, Lung Physiology, Neuroethology, Immunology, Genetic Engineering, Stem Cell Therapy, Proteomics, Molecular Biology, Signal Transduction, Interferon (IFNs) Transcription Factors, Neuroimaging, Electrophysiology, Biochemistry of Fungal Pathogens and Genesis of Secondary Metabolites as well as Genetic manipulations of Plants which include Plant Tissue Culture and Molecular Marker Developments. Apart from above advantages, M.Sc. Biotechnology Programme prepares the students to be the leaders in research, policy and business.
