Welcome to Department of Genetics

About

Department of Genetics was established in the year 1994 – 1995 with meagre strength of 22 students with Microbiology,Genetics and Chemistry as the optional subjects. Later on another group of Biochemistry, Genetics and Chemistry was included in accordance with the demand of these subjects. The department was further expanded with a well – furnished laboratory and a wonderful library, which is readily accessible to all the students. The text books and journals are of wide range, which include Indian as well foreign edition and help the students to know the world of science and technology.

In the last five years the department got university ranks. Students are encouraged to prepare assignments & seminars. To make the students environmentally conscious & responsible, the department organized various awareness campaigns which provide a great learning experience to the students.

Objectives


Objectives of our Department are as follows:

  • To provide a comprehensive education in Genetics that stresses scientific reasoning and problem solving across the spectrum of disciplines within life sciences.
  • To enrich students with opportunities for alternative education in the area of Genetics through undergraduate research.
  • To provide thorough training in written and oral communication of scientific information.

The Department of Genetics offers the following programs:

Others: Bridge course:

The students admitted are from pure sciences, in order to understand the advances in the subject genetics, special bridge course of 15 days is offered in the basic concepts of Genetics.
