Our Bio Technology Lab is always focused towards development of crops with improved traits like disease, pest, drought resistance and high yield. The Biotech department mainly deals with three biotechnological aspects i.e. molecular biology, genetic engineering and plant tissue culture.
The technologies available with respective areas are -
- Molecular biology - PCR, ELISA, Real time PCR, Marker assisted selection
Genetic engineering - RNAi, Agroinoculation
Tissue culture - Micro propagation of Pomegranate and other elite crops
Di – haploids - Anther culture, microspore culture
Transgenics - Agro bacterium mediated gene transformation, gene gun mediated transformation
Our Biotech division is recognized by North Maharashtra University as Post Graduate Research Center providing unique opportunities to Biotech students to carry out their doctoral program. Our Biotech facilities are approved and recognized by DSIR, Ministry of Science and Technology, New Delhi.
