The Department of Biotechnology was established in the year 2006 by the golden hands of His Holiness Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal and His Holiness Sri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Swamigal. The affiliation to both the B.Sc and M.Sc Biotechnology was gained at one stroke and at the very initiation and we owe much to the University of Madras for this. And, in 2015, the department beccame research department and the Doctoral programme started in 2017. Right from the inception, the department has been very clear in its goal that is “Steering its services with the motto of universal enlightenment.” Accordingly, it has been offering advanced laboratory services like HPLC analysis, UV-Vis Spectral studies, plant and animal tissue culture, 16s rRNA amplification, Fluorescence Microscopy, Magnetically Activated Cell Sorting facilities and fermentation using New Brunswick Bioflow- 110. Also the recent licenses for advanced software like SRL Autodock and Pathway tools for Metacyc maps the direction of our advancement. The growth is spontaneous and tremendous. We have bioinformatics Centre comprising 30 system and 6 Mbps internet connection. The department had signed MoU with Kavins biotech Chennai for QA and QC programme, where the student get exposure to industrial oriented courses.
