Department Overview

Head of Department: Prof. Rahul Kumar

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.

Programme/ Courses

The department is currently offering the follwing regular programmes of study :

Post-Graduate Course

Achievements

The department has so far organized two international symposia on Crop Biotechnology and has conducted 3 training courses for 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.

To promote cutting edge R&D activities and skill development of faculty and students the department has signed MOU’s with various National and International Institutes including (i) Indian Institute of Rice Research, Hyderabad, (ii) National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources (NBPGR), New Delhi, (iii) Indian Institute of Pulses Research, Kanpur, (iv) Central Potato Research Institute, Shimla, (v) Indian Institute of Maize Research (IIMR), ludhiana Panjab, (vi) International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Hyderabad, (vii) Murdoch University, Western Australia.  

WheatQTLdb (WheatQTLdb) was developed by department faculty and students/research fellows for the first time. This WheatQTLdb contains currently largest collection of wheat QTLs (11,552) and is freely available for public use. WheatQTLdb based research paper has been recently published in the journal Molecular Genetics and Genomics [Kalpana et al.(2021) 296(5):1051-1056].

The department emphasises innovation by translating bright ideas into useful products. Recently,the department filed a patent  (App No. 20211043204) titled "Novel method for green synthesis of soluble nanoparticles and product thereof". 

The Plant Biotechnology Journal published a featured article on the six decade academic and research journey of Dr. P. K. Gupta, on his 85th birthday, highlighting the major achievements made by Dr. Gupta in the area of cytotaxonomy, cytogenetics, mutation breeding, crop biotechnology and plant genomics ( https://doi.org/10.1111/pbi.13795)
