Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary course which encompasses all basic science subjects. It is a technology with profuse agricultural, medicinal and industrial applications. It was established with an objective to provide teaching and research to young students and equip them to meet the growing need of the state and country. The seeds of this department were sown in the Department of Botany in the form of introducing Plant Tissue Culture as one of the specialization in Botany during 1984-1985 through the assistance of UGC VII plan. Later the same specialization was restructured as Plant Biotechnology. Through inputs of active teaching and research by committed teachers, the specialization has got enough platform to elevate the specialization into a separate course. In the year 2000 under the aegis of Department of Botany, M.Sc. Biotechnology took roots.  The course was inaugurated on 23rd August, 2000 by renowned scientist Prof. Asis Datta, Former Vice- Chancellor, Jawaharlal University, New Delhi.
