We are a large Department, spanning all the major biological research areas. All our courses are taught by specialists in their subject areas and build on our internationally respected research. We offer outstanding, state-of-the-art facilities; including computer labs, software-based analyses, sequence alignments etc. Our faculties are valued for both their scientific training and their transferable skills to provide best carrier opportunities. Most of our graduates will find work in areas directly related to their studies, including Industries, Food Sector, Pharmaceutics, Scientific officers in conservation and biological management, civil service management and other areas.
We develop highly trained and skilled professionals to meet the growing demand for trained manpower for the commercial linkage between Laboratories to Land. The major areas of study under the Department are Plant and Animal Biotechnology, Genetics and Molecular Biology, Molecular Phylogeny, Gene tagging, Recombinant DNA Technology and Gene manipulations, Hybridoma Technology etc. The faculty members of the Department are actively engaged in the following areas of research: Cellular and Molecular Immunology, cancer research, RAPD, AFLP, SSR and ISSR marker systems, Plant and animal proteomics, Plant Tissue culture and animal tissue culture, 16S and 18S ribosomal cataloguing etc. The department emphasizes on the studies supplemented with high quality laboratory work to maintain the National and International decorum of the study area. It offers and opens good carrier-oriented opportunities to the students.

Q. What is Biotechnology?
A. Biotechnology, in true sense, means the controlled and deliberate manipulation of biological systems, whether living cells or cell components, for the efficient manufacture or processing of useful products for the wellbeing of man in particular and other living organism at large. This newly gained knowledge through multidisciplinary approach has given birth to the new discipline of applied science called Biotechnology.
Q. Why to study Biotechnology?
A. By studying the components of living cells, we can learn how to control, fix and modify them to our benefit. This knowledge has already lead to the creation and manufacture of products that help in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases (e.g. the production of antibiotics, insulin, and other genetically engineered medicines such as safer recombinant vaccines). Biotechnology is also playing a role in providing services in the areas like healthcare, food, agriculture, energy and the environment.
Q. What are the career prospects in Biotechnology?
A. Biotechnology assimilates in itself a number of disciplines. There is a great demand for biotechnologists in countless diversified industries and sectors such as,
Career opportunities for students in biotechnology are plentiful. Those specializing in different sub-disciplines of this field can easily find jobs in both private and government sector undertakings like processing and developing agricultural and biological products, bio-processing industries, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. There are ample opportunities in industries producing healthcare products, textile industry, cosmetics and organizations engaged in different types of industrial research and development.
Q. Is Glocal University affiliated to any University for purpose of recognition of degrees?
A. Glocal University is a University established under sec 3 of UGC Act 1956. Being a University, the question of affiliation to another university does not arise. Since the university is recognized by UGC and Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India, the courses offered by Glocal University are recognized.
Q. How are UG Programs designed?
A. Choice Based credit system with continuous evaluation is followed in semester pattern.
Q. At the time of counseling, is the presence of candidate compulsory?
A. Yes, the candidate along with his parent or guardian shall be present at the counseling desk.
Q. Eligibilty & criteria:
A. for UG programmes : To apply it is mandatory to have taken Biology as a subject in your XII std. 60% aggregate marks in Physics, Chemistry & Biology is a necessary eligibility.
for PG programmes : Graduation in any discipline of science including Mathematics, Engineering or Medicine. Background in Biology is preferred for Biotechnology & Microbiology programs whereas a background in Mathematics or Computer Science is preferred for the bioinformatics program.
