Biotechnology is a multidisciplinary branch of Modern Biology, related to all practical/commercial/controlled use of biological agents such as, microorganisms or cellular components, for beneficial use. It encompasses the rapidly developing fields like Molecular Biology, Genetic Engineering, DNA Finger Printing, Monoclonal Antibody Technology, Tissue Culture, Fermentation Technology etc.
As an interdisciplinary science, Biotechnology finds its application to Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Textile Industries and to Agriculture and Animal Husbandry.
Hence the course of M.Sc. Biotechnology is one of the most challenging and demanding courses of the day, with plenty of employment opportunities in National and International industries of Science and Technology.
