Department of Zoology


MICROBIAL BIOTECHNOLOGY GROUP

This research group focuses on feeding the microbes with low cost agro-industrial wastes and getting benefit from the microbes in terms of important industrial enzymes, bioplastics production, heavy metals??? bioremediation and production of protein rich foods. ....





Aquatox and Sustainable Fisheries Group

This research group interested to work on genotoxic effects of metals on fish and other animals. Heavy metals are the major environmental pollutants entering the ecosystem through agricultureal runoff, industrial effluents, mining activities etc. The metals cause oxidative stress mediated genotoxic damage in exposed animals. Thus understanding the ....




Introduction

To acquire international academic excellence and to produce high standard intellects among graduates and post-graduates the Department of Zoology is accommodating teaching and research in diverse areas including Molecular Biology, Fisheries, Physiology, Endocrinology, Microbiology, Entomology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Genetics, Biodiversity,Wildlife, Ecology and Animal behavior. The Department admits graduates to study for BS, M.Sc, M.Phil and PhD degree programs in various fields of Animal Sciences. The academic staff of department comprises 1 Associate Professor, 14 Assistant Professors and 2 Teaching Assistants. The highly qualified and well experienced staff is striving hard to inspire students towards a career of modernization to help the academia to be able to participate in community development projects according to international standards. The establishment of the department is commitment towards developing a Center of Excellence.

Vision

Department of Zoology is entrusted with the task to strengthen and improve academic excellence. The research activities of the department are being conducted under three main thrust areas vizFishries, Molecular Biology/Microbiology and Physiology/Endocrinology. The department is committed toward developing the institute as a Center of Learning and the first modern Women University of the State.

Mission

The department is striving hard to excel in training human resources in various fields of Animal Sciences. There is a robust graduate community taking admission in Department within a short span of its establishment. The department aims for monitoring the dwindling regional animal resources and to formulate strategies for the conservation of animal diversity of the State.
