About Us

The PG Course (M.Sc. Biotechnology) and UG Course (B.Sc. CBZ with Biotechnology) were introduced in 2008 and 2009 in SGRR (PG) College, Dehradun under Self-Finance Scheme. The infrastructure facilities include classrooms, well equipped laboratories, computer facilities and a departmental library. The Department also imparts practical training to students at PG level (fourth semester) and also to B.Sc. (CBZ with Biotechnology) students in their final year having short term dissertations/projects mandatory in the course curriculum. Recently, the Department has established a Plant Tissue Culture laboratory under a major project funded by SBP, Govt. of Uttarakhand and has also completed the installation of High Tech Green House funded by SGRREM (Shri Guru Ram Rai Education. All the students of B.Sc. Biotechnology and M.Sc. Biotechnology are given training on Basic techniques in plant tissue culture. The students from other fields like Agriculture, Botany, Microbiology and Zoology are also encouraged to pay a visit to the lab and understand the basics of plant tissue culture. In order to promote entrepreneurship in Biotechnology, the Department has also initiated Commercial projects such as Floriculture (Rose, gerbera and gladiolas) with the help of Department of Economics within the College. Micropropagation of plants through tissue culture techniques have been commercialized globally especially in floriculture and horticulture sectors,  therefore the students of UG & PG courses in Biotechnology are also given training on technical knowhow of the projects so that they could understand their application and utilize this so-called science based business in future.
