Biotechnology

About the Department

To feed more than a billion stomachs, and counting, Agricultural biotechnology has to be a natural winner in priority terms for a country like India, especially in the era of climate change, degradation of farmlands, increased soil salinity, due to drop in groundwater as well as pollution of surface water sources, more frequent droughts and so on. Recent scientific advances can facilitate us in accelerating pre-breeding germplasm enhancement for eventual crop improvement through effective molecular breeding. Along with pursuing basic research, genome sequencing and genomic studies for identification of useful genes, QTLs & validation of their function; developing transgenic crops and crop improvement through marker aided selection for tackling various abiotic & biotic stresses and quality traits are high priority in the agriculture biotechnology programme of the department.

Agriculture Biotechnology can be viewed as group of useful enabling technologies that have tremendous potential in precision farming and molecular agriculture. In view of the importance of biotechnology, University has initiated Agricultural Biotechnology program in 2001 to develop suitable biotechnological techniques to complement conventional methods of raising field crops.

After initiating the M.Sc. and PhD program in 2003 and 2008 respectively, to essentially provide basic and applied science curricula and specialized skills for profitable employment. The students of this program not only excelled nationally but also internationally. Almost all students qualified the competitive NET/GATE and CSIR and DBT-JRF examinations and found placements in premier National/International Institutes.

Department Profile

Department is working in the field of crop improvement by using molecular and Tissue culture tools with special reference to sugarcane, medicinal plants, pulses, cereals, vegetables and horticulture crops.

Mandate of the Department

The department of Agricultural Bio-technology which is one of the major departments in the College of Agriculture that came into existence in the year 2002. The department is developing new biotechnology techniques that can be utilized by the local farmers for the betterment of their annual crops and even will demonstrate these techniques on farmers' fields through KVK's, national Institutes of agriculture learning.

The department is catering to the requirement of teaching and research in the field of Bio-Technology. Subsequently the college of Bio-Technology was established during the year 2004 with following objectives.

  • To deliver quality education leading to the degrees of M.Sc. (Ag) Biotechnology and Ph.D. Agricultural Biotechnology.
  • To carry out research on the genetic manipulations in the major crops of the region.
  • Development of crops and seeds of high yield, quality & resistance to biotic & abiotic stresses.
