The science has its roots in fundamental human needs of nutrition, health and environmental control that offer the opportunity to study microbiology as microbes are the center of biological sciences. On the other hand, molecular genetics constitute an integral part of modern biotechnology that has a significant impact on our lives from DNA finger printing to development of vaccination. Keeping in view the importance of both subjects, MMG department is projected to cover both fields in understanding the fundamental process of life at the insightful level and committed to provide advance and innovative approaches both at academic and research level in the field of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics. Rich course curriculum and updated research laboratories with experienced, supportive and passionate faculty help in the sharpening of research and scientific communication skills.
To serve society through innovation in education, research and creativity.
The Department of MMG visualizes itself as a pioneer provider of first-rate education and research in microbiology and molecular genetics by applying comprehensive, rigorous and unconventional methods to the microbial world. Our department’s mission is to train undergraduate, graduate and post graduate students for careers in microbiology and molecular genetics through excellence in teaching, research, and service and to build a strong teaching and research environment by collaborating with other institutes to resolve the glitches/problems of national interests.
Scope and Objectives
The main objectives of this department are to
- Prepare students as determined microbiologists and genetics in education, industry, agriculture and health related fields.
- Provide an advanced understanding of the core principles and topics of microbiology and molecular genetics and their experimental basis that enable students to acquire a specialized knowledge and understanding of respective
- Provide the students with analytical and presentation skills. This will be achieved by class presentations, seminars, small group discussions and participation in national and international workshops, symposiums and conferences.
- Facilitate students in every way possible in order for them to carry out their research on time and the subsequent publication and presentation of their research work nationally and internationally.
