Department of Microbiology

The department of Microbiology was established in the academic year 2002-2003, with more than 5000 sq. ft. of laboratory facility. It comprises of all the essential equipment and provides a sophisticated atmosphere for the students to work around. The department has received six major research grants from various funding agencies such as UGC, ICMR, DBT, DST and TNSCST for research work and published two hundred and forty seven research articles in reputed national and international peer reviewed journals. In addition, ten patents has been filed and more than thirty gene sequences has been submitted so far. The department is vibrant with various programs, seminars, symposiums, conferences, and workshops to enhance the knowledge of the students. The department faculties also eminently organized, participated and presented several papers in seminars and conference.
