Life Sciences a frontier area of research with an overwhelming impact on man and society, focuses on basic research in Modern Biology and Biotechnology including Genomics, Proteomics, Transcriptomics, Bioinformatics, Plant and Animal Biotechnology, Medical Biotechnology, Environment Sciences and Biodiversity, Biofuels products and process development leading to commercialization and application of Bio products. In essenence it can be recognized as new scientific endeavor and a powerful enabling technology that can revolutionize Agriculture, Health Care, Industrial Processing, Environmental Sustainability etc.
We aspire to empower students with the latest tools, techniques and awareness in Life Sciences by facilitating comprehensive learning, combining the scientific knowledge with technological and social aspects to become a meaningful human resource.
The department is devoted to basic scientific investigations and research. The concepts and techniques of modern science have made it possible to focus much of its research at the cellular and molecular level as well as in fermentation process in order to investigate the fundamental process of life. IAMR continues to be a pioneer in bringing diverse areas together on a common ground and is unique in its commitment to interdisciplinary investigations.
The objective of the program is to train students to embark upon research in Microbiology & Biotechnology. A series of live demonstration of techniques in Biotechnology & Microbiology for the students from senior secondary schools of the NCR region has given these students insight into the realms of bio-sciences. The response has been encouraging. The students and the faculty have had hands-on-practice on some of the technologies in the field and were delighted and their area of further story deeply motivated to make life successes.
IAMR is planning to collaborate with National level research Laboratories in pursuit of knowledge and front line research activities and to impart to the students international level of training in interdisciplinary science.
Department of Biotechnology & Microbiology has a setup of specialized laboratories (with all modern amenities) viz. Molecular Biology, Genetics, Recombinant DNA & Genomics Labs, Plant Tissue Culture, Animal Tissue Culture, Enzymology and proteomics Lab, Bioinformatics and Data Analysis Lab. The Laboratories are equipped with all essential equipments viz- Autoclaves BOD incubators, High speed refrigerated centrifuges, deep freezers, high grade purity water producing units, laminar flows, high resolution microscopes (with documentation systems) Incubator Shakers, Fermenter, PCR Thermal Cycles, UV Visible Spectrophotometers, Tissue & Cell homogenizers, Trans illuminator with gel documentation system, Electrophoresis system, Colony counters etc., and many more high through-put-system are under procurement including RT-PCR Cross linkers HPLC system hybridization ovens electroporators, gene gun, sequences lypholizers etc.
