More about biotechnology

For years mankind has been using biotechnology as a tool in a few fields, including agriculture and food production. It involved improvement in crops, plant cultivation and breeding of domestic animals. But in recent years, with the involvement in technology, biotechnology has taken an altogether different dimension. It has now diversed into new fields such as genomics, immunology, pharmaceutical therapies, diagnostic tests, tissue culture and genetic engineering. Some of the topics learnt in this course are: microbiology, biochemistry, genetics, embryology, molecular biology and cell biology. Topics outside the scope of biology, like bioinformatics, chemical and bioprocess engineering are also touched upon.

Job opportunities

Since biotechnology is a new phenomenon and a growing field, a lot many new opportunities are coming up every year. The field has varied applications. From medical science, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, animal husbandry, chemical and textile industries, newer applications are coming up, thus improving the scope for employment. Biotechnology is also finding applications in sectors such as food processing, aquaculture, biofuels, biodegradable plastics, vegetable oil and development of seeds. There are also tremendous scope for research in this field. There are many research based jobs, most of them and the research facilities are however, based in the western countries. Most students, after completion of this postgraduate program thus prefer to go for higher qualification, by opting for an M.Phil or P.hD program. Opportunities to go for an academic based career is also possible by getting recruited in reputed institutions spread across the world.
