The Department of Biotechnology came in existence under the School of Life Sciences at Central University of Rajasthan in July 2011. The Master’s program in Biotechnology was started as the flagship program of the department with immediate effect. In the following academic year, 2012-13,Ph.D. program was introduced and then in academic year 2013-14 an integrated M.Sc. programme was also initiated.

The department has well equipped laboratories for Ph.D., M.Sc. and integrated M.Sc. students. The department has a total of ten highly qualified and  enthusiastic faculty members already on board. With continuous development and expansion of its scientific infrastructure and learned faculty, the  department aims to become one of the shining beacons of the University and the nation in the near future.

 

 
 

 

M. Sc. Biotechnology (2 years Program)

The science of Biotechnology has tremendous potential for application in agriculture,  medicine and environment. The breakthroughs in modern biotechnology mainly include our ability to produce useful organisms through genetic engineering and cell fusion techniques and improved bioprocess technology to purify novel molecules generated by such processes. It also involves areas focusing on drug targeting, development of delivery systems, development of vaccines and genetically modified products for the benefit of society. Considering this background, the program is designed in such a way that it covers diverse areas of biological and biomedical sciences such as, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Immunology and Genetics.

Integrated M. Sc. Biotechnology (5 years Program)

Ten integrated M.Sc. programmes were started parallely. Out of these programmes, seven programme viz. Biotechnology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Environmental Science, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics share same course framework (except for the course of mathematics) for the first two years, after completion of which, specific courses of the individual programme are taught. The other three programmes viz. Statistics, Economics and Computer Science form the other group where courses are shared. This design of academic programme was adopted to make the science students learn basic fundamentals of all the science streams. Hence the students of biotechnology programme will learn basic courses related to biology and also other discipline e.g. chemistry, physics, mathematics, environmental science. Integrated M.Sc. programmes of the university were conceptualized to generate skilled manpower capable of taking inter-disciplinary approach to understand and solve real problems.

Doctor of Philosophy

Based on the expertise of faculty members, department is offering Ph. D. in upfront areas of  research, which include functional genomics of abiotic stress and root development; cell signalling and human disease; Microbial physiology, genetics and ecology; Biophysics, protein chemistry and structure biology of amyloid; Vaccine development, antibody engineering and structure biology; Biophysics and infection biology; Nanotechnology for targeted drug, gene and siRNA delivery etc. A stipend of Rs. 8000/- is provided  to all the candidates who make to the program.
