DEPARTMENT OF BIOTECHNOLOGY

About The Department

Biotechnology integrates branches like genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology and cell biology, which are in turn linked to practical specialties like chemical engineering, information technology and robotics.

Biotechnology engineering is a field of applied biology and chemical engineering principles that involves the use of living things in engineering, technology, medicine, and other useful applications. It also includes genetic engineering as well as cell and tissue culture technologies. Biotechnology is a collection of combined technologies applied to living cells for production of a particular product or enhancing its quality. This might involve domestication of animals, cultivation of plants and "improvements" through breeding, artificial selection and hybridization.
