Department of Microbiology

Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi and protozoa. This includes the complex study Biochemistry, Physiology, Cell biology, Ecology, Evolution and clinical aspects of micro organism, including the host response to these agents and their effect on Humans and other natural elements.

University aims in enhancing the abilities and skills of students for application of microbiology principles to the problems faced by various industries and to develop them as intellectual and talented microbiologists.
