About Us

Biochemistry teaching at UG level started in 1960 in the college of Agriculture with the inception of University. Masters and PhD program were started in college of Basic Sciences & Humanities in 1963 and 1967, respectively. A full fledged department came into existence in 1972-73.

The department imparts training in modern biochemistry both at Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels. It interacts with twenty disciplines located in the University to do advanced research in various facets of Biochemistry with emphasis to search for novel biomolecules, novel genes from plants/micro-organism, production of pharmaceutically important protein through plant, to improve shelf-life of fruits, vegetables and gur under Post Harvest Technology and quality improvement in rape seed mustard under AICRP. It is also engaged in identifying metabolites, enzymes involved in production of antifeedants and biochemistry of biotic and abiotic stresses in plants.
