Bio-Technology

About the Department

At its simplest, Biotechnology is technology based on Biology - Biotechnology harnesses cellular and bio molecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet. This department came into being in 2004. Since then, regular U.G. and P.G. courses are running successfully in this subject.

Research

  • A workshop on "Biotechnology: Exploited to develop New Technology". was organized by department in 2016.
  • Three UGC sponsored Minor Research Projects have been sanctioned to our 3 faculty members viz; Charan Singh, Jainender Bhati, Monika Vig.
  • Our faculty member, Mr. Charan Singh (H.O.D) was honored by Dist. Collector & State Minister for Plant Cloning in Sri Ganganagar. 
  • We provide successful results in cloning and hardening on different medicinal plant through our “Plant Tissue Culture” process.
  • Production of cheese, yoghurt, bio fertilizer, wine and mushroom was performed by Students under the Industrial Biotechnology branch.
  •  DNA, RNA and Proteins were successfully isolated from bacteria and plants and the Gene Transformation by Agrobacterium and sequencing of different medicinal plants was done through the Molecular and Genetic Engineering techniques.
  • Identification, isolation and antimicrobial activity in different strains of bacteria is performed under Microbiology.
  • RID, ODD and ELISA are successfully performed under Immunology.

 

Highlights & Achievements
