Biotechnology is the third wave in biological sciences and represents such an interface of basic and applied sciences, where gradual and subtle transformation of science into technology can be witnessed. It compromises a number of technologies based upon increasing understanding of biology at the cellular and molecular level. Being multidisciplinary in nature, Biotechnology finds application in varied fields from medicine to agriculture and from environment to industry. Thus there is an increasing quest for researchers to meet the global demands. Keeping this in mind, the Department of Biotechnology, Govt. Degree College Anantnag was established to offer U.G. courses in Biotechnology.The subjects that are taught in the department of Biotechnology include cell biology, industrial microbiology, molecular biology, biophysical and biochemical techniques, enzymology, plant biotechnology, genetic engineering, immunology and animal biotechnology.
