About Us

The Department of Biological Sciences is one of the first departments established in this university in 1960. Intended with the teaching of basic Biology courses at the inception, the department over the period has developed expertise and the courses in basic and applied fields of Biology like Botany, Zoology, Nematology, Biodiversity, Rhizosphere Biology, Taxonomy/ Molecular Systematics etc. Laboratories in the department are well equipped with an extensive range of facilities and apparatuses commensurate with its broad expertise. The areas of teaching includes the traditional basic fields like Phycology, Mycology, Bryology, Angiosperms, Bacteriology, Lichenology, Ecology, Plant Taxonomy, Economic Botany on the one hand vis-a-vis contemporary advanced fields like Plant biodiversity, Rhizosphere Biology, Plant Life in Extreme Habitats, Molecular Taxonomy at the other hand to extend a perfect amalgam of Biology to students.
