Department Profile


Department Profile

Microbiology is the study of the biology of microscopic organisms such as viruses, bacteria, algae,fungi, slimemoulds, and protozoa. The methods used to study these minute unicellular organisms differ from those used in most other biological investigations. Recombinant DNA technology uses microorganisms, particularly bacteria and viruses, to amplify DNA sequences and generate the encoded products, moving genes from one microorganism to another, or amplifying them within microorganisms, permits application of microbial skills to solve medical and environmental problems.

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

The Department takes legitimate pride in honouring well established infrastructure and our prime focus is to enrich the ambition of our students, staff and steer with constructive collaboration towards excellence. The Department strives to provide quality education conjugated with innovative technology so as to be able to gain technical and educational expertise both nationally and internationally.We have highly qualified staff members with ten Ph.D., and four pursuing Ph.D., Our staffs have received five minor projects from UGC and Two TNSCST student projects out of which three projects were completed and one is ongoing.
