Training & Research Domains

Agriculture Biotechnology

Agricultural biotechnology is a range of tools, including traditional breeding techniques, that alter living organisms, or parts of organisms, to make or modify products; improve plants or animals; or develop microorganisms for specific agricultural uses.

Algal Biotechnology

Algae already have wide application as sources of useful chemicals such as polysaccharides, carotenoids, phycobilin pigments, and long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. They have also found application in the food and feed industries, as fertilizers and growth promoters in agriculture, and in wastewater treatment.

Animal Cell Culture

Animal cells are typical of the eukaryotic cell, enclosed by a plasma membrane and containing a membrane-bound nucleus and organelles. Unlike the eukaryotic cells of plants and fungi, animal cells do not have a cell wall.


Bioinformatics, as related to genetics and genomics, is a scientific subdiscipline that involves using computer technology to collect, store, analyze and disseminate biological data and information, such as DNA and amino acid sequences or annotations about those sequences. Scientists and clinicians use databases that organize and index such biological information to increase our understanding of health and disease and, in certain cases, as part of medical care.

Bio-Pharma Technology

The Biopharmaceutical Technology curriculum is designed to prepare individuals for employment in pharmaceutical manufacturing and related industries. Major emphasis is placed on manufacturing processes and quality assurance procedures.

Cancer Biology

Research in the field of basic cancer biology focuses on the mechanisms that underlie fundamental processes such as cell growth, the transformation of normal cells to cancer cells, and the spread, or metastasis, of cancer cells.

Environmental Biotechnology

Environmental Biotechnology is defined as a branch of biotechnology that addresses environmental problems, such as the genetic rescue of a species, the removal of pollution, renewable energy generation or biomass production, all by using biological processes for the protection and restoration of the quality of the environment.

Enzyme Technology

Enzyme technology is one of the corner stones of Industrial Biotechnology. The research in this area involves both fundamental and applied enzymology, bio catalysis, molecular modelling, structural biology and diagnostics.

Food Biotechnology

Food biotechnology is the use of technology to modify the genes of our food sources. Our food sources are animals, plants, and microorganisms. With food biotechnology, we create new species of animals and plants, for example, specifically animals and plants that we eat. These new species have desired nutritional, production, and marketing properties.

Herbal Technology

Herbal Technology encompasses all the myriads of ways of utilizing the multifarious potentialities of plants for human welfare. There are presently five main branches such as Medicinal plants, Natural dyes, Biopesticides, Biofertilizers and Biofuel in this discipline, though more and more may be added later.

Marine Biotechnology

Marine biotechnology is the creation of products and processes from marine organisms through the application of biotechnology, molecular and cell biology, and bioinformatics.

Molecular Cell Biology

Molecular biology is the branch of biology that seeks to understand the molecular basis of biological activity in and between cells, including molecular synthesis, modification, mechanisms, and interactions. The study of chemical and physical structure of biological macromolecules is known as molecular biology.


Nanotechnology is the term given to those areas of science and engineering where phenomena that take place at dimensions in the nanometer scale are utilized in the design, characterization, production and application of materials, structures, devices and systems.

Tissue Engineering

Tissue engineering is a biomedical engineering discipline that uses a combination of cells, engineering, materials methods, and suitable biochemical and physicochemical factors to restore, maintain, improve, or replace different types of biological tissues.
