Course Programs Offered
B.Sc. Biotechnology (H)
Bio-technology is a science involving the use of living organisms in processes for the manufacture of useful products. It involves algae, bacteria, fungi, yeast, cells of higher plants and animals. Biotechnology is multi-disciplinary in nature and includes biological sciences e.g. genetics, microbiology, animal cell culture, molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology, cell biology, cell & Tissue culture, immunology and chemistry. Modern use of the term biotechnology refers to making changes in the genes of an organism (bacteria, animals and plants) to improve their characteristics, like production of useful protein in bacteria, curing genetic diseases in humans and to develop resistance against diseases caused by various virus, bacteria and insects in plants.
B.Sc. Industrial Microbiology (H)
Microbiology is a branch of science that studies microorganisms such as bacteria, protozoa, algae, fungi, bacteria, viruses, etc. The relevance and applications of these microorganisms to the surrounding environment including human life and Mother Nature becomes part of this branch. Since inception of this branch of science, Microbiology has remained a field of actively research and ever expanding in all possible directions; broadly categorized as pure and applied science. Different branches of Pure Microbiology based on taxonomy are Bacteriology, Mycology, Protozoology and Parasitology, Phycology and Virology; with considerable overlap between these specific branches over each other and also with other disciplines of life sciences, like Biochemistry, Botany, Zoology, Cell Biology, Biotechnology, etc. Areas in the applied Microbial Sciences can be identified as: Medical, Pharmaceutical, Industrial (Fermentation, Pollution Control), Air, Water, Food and Dairy, Veterinary, Environmental (Ecology, Geomicrobiology); and the technological aspects of these areas.
