Department of Microbiology

Department of Microbiology was established in the year 2007. We have well equipped laboratory with all experimental instruments. To give an idea for the students about the techniques of tissue culture, our college microbiology and zoology Department have established the vermicompost pits and Green house.

The department conducts industrial and Research lab study tour for V & VI semester students annually. The department of Microbiology organizes various Guest lectures and Seminars for benefit of students.


Micro-organisms make a significant contribution & are therefore for their Importance to human life. They have also helped in the development of Biotechnology. Microbes affect both Positively & Negatively on Human life. They play an important role in all aspects of life. Applications of Microbiology as Agricultural Microbiology, Bio-fertilizers, Environmental Microbiology, Bio-Remediation, Bio-leaching, Industrial Microbiology-Fermentation Technology, Wine [production], Medical Microbiology – Immunology-immuno-techniques (ELISA,RIA,PCR,Monoclonal Antibodies Production).
