Welcome to DUVASU, Mathura

   

Biotechnology

 

Under the self-finance scheme, the College of Biotechnology was started in the year 2010 with the competent Core and Resource faculty. The 3 batches of M.Sc. Biotechnology have been awarded degrees after their quality dissertation work. B.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in the college have been started from the academic session. (2014-15).

The mandate of the College:

  • To provide  education and research opportunities in  Animal Biotechnology
  • To develop centres of excellence in research programs those connect younger scientists and issues of concern and importance in animal health and production.
  • To transfer new knowledge and relevant information to our field veterinarians and cattle owners through extension education and outreach programs.
  • To develop molecular tools for diagnosis of animal infectious diseases, control of animal diseases through production of new animal vaccines, delivery systems and animal production by assisted reproductive techniques.

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.

M.Sc. / M.V.Sc. Biotechnology (4 semester duration)

M. Sc. / M.V.Sc. Biotechnology aims to develop specialization in various diversified areas of biotechnology and its application to medicine, agriculture, environment, nutraceuticals, functional food and animal sciences etc.

PhD Biotechnology (6 semester duration)

PhD Biotechnology aims to develop hard core specialization in a single area of biotechnology as applicable to medicine, agriculture, environment, nutraceuticals, functional food and animal sciences.
