Department of Microbiology

The universal recognition of microbes in daily life and more so in agriculture, led to the establishment of the Department in 1960. Master’s and Ph.D. programmes were amongst the first P.G. programmes to be initiated in the University. The present emphasis of research in the Department is on cold shock proteins and microbial inoculants and molecular microbial ecology.The Ministry of Environment and Forest, Govt. of India has established a canter of Research on Bacteria and Archaea with five sub-centres in the country under the All India Coordinated project on Taxonomy(AICOPTAX). The Department of Science & Technology has recognised the department under the DST-FIST sponsored in Biotechnology (ICSB) in the country and operates a research
