Teaching Facilities

The department has experienced faculty members, technical staff and excellent teaching facilities (upgraded lecture halls, LCD projectors in every classroom, innovative teaching methodologies, etc.). Our faculty members have publications in National or International Journals/Proceedings/Souvenirs and are also encouraged to attend conferences/seminars/workshops for their knowledge enrichment and scientific exposure. The Institute also has a central library and computer facility for the faculty staff and students. Believing in overall student development and two-way teaching theory. To further promote this, value added/professional development courses, extracurricular events, guest/expert lectures, educational trips, industrial visits, conferences/seminars are also being organized time to time.

Research Activities

The department has well-equipped laboratories to conduct experiments in Microbiology, Biochemistry, Cytogenetics, Immunology, Plant Tissue Culture and Environmental Biotechnology. The department has laboratory equipments such as Thermal Cycler, Ultracentrifuge, UV-Vis Spectrophotometer, Colorimeter, Laminar-Air Flow, Compound Microscopes, Digital Colony Counter, BOD Incubator, Muffle Furnace, Gel Electrophoresis Unit (Horizontal), Rotatory Shakers, Fixed and Rotatory Water Baths, Kjeldahl Distillation Unit, Clevenger Apparatus, Soxhlet Extraction Unit, Tissue Homogenizer, Heating Mantle, Vortex, Magnetic Stirrer, Microtome, Water Purification Unit, Deep freezer (-200C), Ovens, Bath Sonicator etc. In addition to this, facilities to conduct experiments in Environmental Biotechnology and Plant Tissue Culture are also available.

The laboratories are upgraded time to time to foster the students with the latest developments. Recently, the department has established the Algal Biotechnology lab to pursue research on Algal based biofuels and Neutraceuticals. So far the department has produced over 60 M.Sc. Dissertations/In-house project work in multi-disciplinary areas of Biological Sciences like Molecular & Micro-biology, Plant Tissue Culture, Phytochemistry, Environmental Biotechnology, Algal Biochemistry & Biofuel production potential, Nanobiotechnology, etc. The department has also received a Grant from the National/State government bodies for organizing conferences and is presently undergoing a state government-funded research project.
