Since its inception, the department has produced a number of bright scientists, now pursuing their careers in India and abroad. Periodical research has been the hallmark of its faculty members. The department has optimized all the resources to improve the quality of education. Following its tradition, the present students in this department are exposed to most of the emerging areas in this (post) genomic era through the curriculum and also through various field visits, off campus training and summer programs in reputed institutes.
The secret of success of this department lies in the academic environment and close ties between teachers and students. The students are trained well in using ultra modern instruments and computer applications in Biology. Placement assistance is also offered to the students as per their aspirations. The future goals of this department are to establish well-equipped lab to impart training in the fields of Genomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics and Drug Designing.
