The foundation for Institute of Biosciences and Technology (IBST) was laid down in 2012, with B Tech (Biotechnology) programme. Thereafter, Ph D programme in Biotechnology was offered from 2013. Subsequently, B Sc (Hons), M Sc and M Tech programmes in Biotechnology were introduced from 2015.

Biotechnology encompasses the applications of understanding of the biological systems to improve human life by addressing challenges and issues facing agricultural sciences, medical sciences, food sciences, etc. It has undergone a paradigm shift in the past two decades with the advent of cutting-edge technologies like next generation sequencing NGS), and precise genome editing. Our Biotechnology programmes, both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, are designed keeping in view both the fundamental concepts, and these technological advances.

Our curricula include courses on areas that include, but not limited to, cell biology, metabolism, genetics, molecular biology, bioinformatics, immunology, plant and animal biotechnology, bioprocess engineering and fermentation, genomics and proteomics, medical, industrial and environmental biotechnologies, etc.

The curricula lay due emphasis on laboratory courses that enhance experiential learning throughout the entire duration of the programmes.

The faculty are from prestigious national and international institutions with rich and diverse research and teaching experience. They have published in high-impact peer-reviewed journals and are actively engaged in research activities, thereby making IBST not only a centre of knowledge-dissemination, but a centre of knowledge-creation.
