B.Sc. Biotechnology

Biotechnology is a branch of biology that applies technology to biological systems to reap novel and proprietary biotechnology products. It also entails use of living organisms or their products to modify human health and environment. An upcoming productive field, it has major scope in key areas like stem cell techniques, DNA Vaccines, Tissue Culture, Protein Engineering, Immunological Studies and many more.
