Recent times have seen a surge in research related to innovation, invention and product orientation. In fact, top experts have made it clear that innovation in biosciences can make it a bigger industry than information technology.

But basic research must remain the cornerstone of the biotech edifice, for without basic research the country will always remain knowledge deficient. Hence, the Department of Biotechnology has developed a very strong bench for basic research in modern biology.

In this area, the DBT focuses on

  • Biochemistry
  • Cell & Molecular Biology
  • Structure Biology & Biophysics
  • Cellular & Molecular Immunology
  • Microbiology
  • Plant Molecular Biology
  • Synthetic
  • Systems & Chemical Biology
  • Reproductive & Developmental Biology

Basic research efforts are directed at conceiving and developing fundamental new ideas, approaches, and methods for addressing some of the most intriguing and challenging aspects of the living organisms. DBT extends support to investigator-initiated frontier research in life science, on the basis of scientific excellence.

The major areas of achievements so far have been in

  • Cell & Molecular Biology
  • Biochemistry & Biophysics
  • Cancer Biology
  • Microbiology
  • Cellular & Molecular Immunology
  • Structure Biology
  • Chemical Biology
