FACULTY   Faculty of Agriculture
Department of Genetics & Plant Breeding

Head of Department: Prof. Shailendra S. Gaurav
The department of Agricultural Botany was established in 1969, initially to impart education to M.Phil. (a pre-requisite for Ph.D) students with specialization in the field of Genetics & Plant Breeding (including Biometrics Genetics and Cytogenetics). Regular M.Sc. Ag. program was started in the year 1980. In the light of the tremendous advances made in biological sciences all over the world, as also the requirement of this region, the courses and research priorities have been accordingly modified. Courses of current scientific importance like Application of Computer Technology in Agriculture and technology in crop improvement are also included in M.Sc.Ag. program. The department has well equipped laboratories for conducting research in front line areas like Crop Biotechnology, Molecular Biology and Cytogenetics. It has also very good farm facilities for conducting field research. The department has so far organized two international symposia on Crop Biotechnology and has conducted 3 training courses to M.Sc. and Ph.D. students in the field of Molecular Biology. The students of the department have shown good performance in ARS, CSIR-JRF/NET, GATE and have obtained various scholarships from various agencies. Several students of the department are presently occupying important positions in both public and private sector organizations.
