Biotechnology is a research oriented field with applications in various areas such as medicine, pharmaceuticals, agriculture and environment. Biotechnology is interdisciplinary, covering biomedical research, microbiology , physics, chemistry,mathematics and engineering. It is the application of biology and genetics to produce substances useful to man. Biotechnologists are involved in gene therapy, fertility control, improving food nutritional value, reducing pollution, increasing livestock productivity etc. Branches in biotechnology such as microbiology and biochemistry have contributed to the development of new drugs.
Job Prospects-

  • Various research organizations in the area of biosciences and biotechnology under CSIR ( council for scientific and industrial research), ICAR ( Indian council for agricultural research) and other such research organizations.
  • Nuclear and atomic research centres, space research centres and other research organizations like BARC,ISRO, SPIC
  • Research opportunities in pharmaceutical companies , food processing companies and other companies involved in bioprocess technology
  • Teaching
  • Companies involved in bioprocess technology, agriculture industry and other related fields.
  • Quality control and analytical laboratories of the bio process technology companuies and other companies involved in related ndustries.
