GB Pant University of Agriculture and Technology is one of the prestigious universities in the field of agriculture and technology. Biotechnology courses offered by the University are upheld not only at the national level but also at the international level. Department of Molecular Biology and Genetic Engineering, College of Basic Science and Humanities is a nodal department and successfully running Master’s and Doctoral programmes in Molecular Biology & Biotechnology since last two decades. Keeping pace with the present scenario of the biotech industry, the University is offering summar/winter trainings in Molecular Biology & Biotechnology to the students of neighboring institutions located in Uttarakhand and also from institutions of different states of our country in order to enable the students to explore greater career prospects and employment opportunities. Department of Molecular Biology & Genetic Engineering is running a four to six weeks on hand training programme for the under graduate and postgraduate students. Training programmewas designed in such a way that covers basic as well as recent emerging techniques in the field of biotechnology. Last year we received approximately 250 applications from all over the Country. Among them, twenty five candidates were selected on the basis of their academic record. We also select at least one student from each institute to maintain the heterogeneity in the group. The feed back of the students regarding training module, lectures and on hand practical examination was rewarding.
