Botanical research conducted in the department has contributed significantly to our understanding of biodiversity and conservation of economically important plants by using tissue culture techniques and microbes especially mycorrhizal fungi. Apart from this, significant contribution was made in the area of stress physiology, seeds storage proteins, growth regulators and carbon sequestration in different agro-climatic ecosystems using GIS and remote sensing.

The aim is to develop institutional linkages and implement effective management systems for the promotion and development of plant biotechnology, plant disease control, biodiversity conservation, cryopreservation and natural botanical products.
