Bio-Technology

“Biotechnology is creating a new industrial revolution based on biology instead of petroleum. As biotech processes replace old rust-belt technologies, they are enabling a transformation from a petroleum-based economy to a bio-based economy.”— Brent Erickson

Biotechnology is the science of manipulating living organisms - be it human beings, animals, plants or micro-organisms, to alter their traits or yield products. It deals with techniques, including genetic engineering to get the desired results. It encompasses subjects like biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and engineering. Modern biotechnology is primarily focused on manipulating the DNA and finds its application in various fields from farming to pharmaceutics.

Biotechnology has evolved as an important branch of science from merely being a part of baking and brewing. Recognizing the importance of it, the Department of Bio-Technology was established in 2005. Since then the department has been striving continuously to achieve excellence.
