ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
Department of Biosciences (UGC-SAP DRS-II & DST-FIST-I) is a premier academic and research institute of the South Gujarat region in the field of life sciences established under the developmental grants of UGC during the IV Five-year plan. The department offers M.Sc., M. Phil. and Ph. D. courses in Biosciences with specialization in subjects of Botany, Zoology and Microbiology. The department also runs M.Sc. Microbiology Self-finance course and the add-on course PG Diploma in Toxicology. More than 125 Ph. D. students have been passed out since the establishment of the department. The department has completed several research projects funded by the State, National, and International funding agencies. The department has signed aMoU with Kagoshima University, Japan in 2012. The Students’ emigration into the foreign country indicates our global acceptance. The department is well-equipped with the sophisticated instruments to conduct the research in the identified areas of life sciences. The department has also comprehensively developed the core research facility in the Microbiome, Bioinformatics, Ecogenomics, Toxicology, Medicinal Plant  etc.
