Programme overview
Botany is one of the oldest natural sciences, which deals with the study of plant life. It has remained an evergreen field of study due to its applications in Environmental, Agricultural, Horticultural and Medical Sciences. Botany has particularly been in the limelight in the last few decades due to its growing awareness of climate change and sustainability. The advent of sub-disciplines like Plant pathology, Plant ecology, Paleo-botany and Ethnobotany has broadened the scope and prospects of the subject. The programme encompasses studies on Plant Anatomy, Embryology, Physiology, Taxonomy, Phyto-chemistry, Genetics, and Plant Molecular Biology. The programme's content emphasises imparting knowledge and training students to take up competitive examinations and pursue a successful career in Botany and Allied Sciences.

Biochemistry deals with understanding living organisms from a chemical perspective. The profound impact of Biochemistry on health & medicine, agriculture, pharmaceutical and food science and many other fields is increasing rapidly. With the advent of lifestyle disorders and tumour diseases, chemical markers have been the most sought after parameters for diagnosis and clinical care, and the relevance of Biochemistry to society has become more apparent. This course covers all the fundamental and emerging aspects of Biochemistry by providing detailed insights into different branches of chemistry like organic, inorganic and physical chemistry and their applications in understanding life.

Biotechnology harnesses the power and prowess of the living world to address issues and offer solutions in research, healthcare, agriculture, and the environment. It is a multi-disciplinary science involving various subjects where living organisms or their derivatives are modified and put into effective use in catering the welfare of humanity. Applications of Biotechnology have been found in several sectors, including Agriculture, Food Science and Medicine. The course introduces the students to the detailed study of Cell Biology, Genetics, Microbiology, Biophysics, Molecular Biology, Recombinant DNA Technology, Genetic Engineering, Environmental Biotechnology, Animal Biotechnology, Immunology, Industrial Biotechnology and Plant Biotechnology.
