Biotechnology offers an opportunity to identify the new diseases in the field of medicine. It produces vaccines and drugs to prevent and cure the diseases with advanced techniques; to identify genetical disorders in human beings, plants and animals.
Biotechnology is the science of today and tomorrow. It has applications in all major service sectors. i.e. health, agriculture, industry, environment etc. Biotechnology as an application science has taken firm footing in many countries
abroad where a number of transgenic crops, genetically modified food and recombinant therapeutic molecules for human and animal health are available in the market. Biotechnology as a science of service to human society is yet to make inroads in India.
Our research covers a wide spectrum, from whole organism biology upto molecular biology an modeling, where molecular ecology forms the bridge between many of our diverse interests.
The coming together of Biotechnology and informatics is paying rich dividends. Genome projects, drug design and molecular taxonomy are all becoming increasingly dependent on informatics. The cost of products through a biotechnological process is always less than that produced through a chemical synthetic route.
