INFORMATION ON ACHIEVEMENTS:

In the present day context of global climate change, and its impact on biodiversity, we are studying biodiversity of different regions of North India Medicinal and aromatic plants represent an emerging area of research in the department with a focus on agrotechnology, ethnobotany, plant identification, and utilization. In vitro propagation protocols have been developed for many important medicinal plants. Chemical diversity in nature is based on biological diversity and the indigenous plants are being analyzed for bioprospecting. Keeping in view the importance of soil organisms in maintaining ecosystem services and soil productivity, the various functional groups of soil microbial diversity have been analyzed using both conventional and modern approaches with special emphasis on biodiversity of mycorrhizal fungi. A product and process patent entitled ‘Liposomes as delivery vehicles in plant cell and tissue culture has been developed and published in patent journal of India, 2008. It is of industrial application for in vitro production of secondary metabolites and biopharmaceutical of therapeutic significance.
About 680 research papers/scientific articles have been published so far in the journals of National & International repute. The department has produced about >100 Ph.D. students so far in the various disciplines of Botany. Several research projects sanctioned by various funding agencies were successfully completed in the department. Major areas of Research in the Department include Plant Tissue Culture, Mycology & Plant Pathology, Plant stress physiology, Taxonomy, Genetics, Plant & Microbial Ecology, Applied Phycology & Microbial Biochemistry. The faculty members have visited abroad for higher studies & advanced training in their respective areas as well as for participating in International Conferences/Congresses. The faculty members also hold the memberships of various National and International associations & societies Several eminent Professors & Scientists from various other Universities/ Institutions have been regularly visiting this department and have delivered lectures useful to our PG level students as well as sharing research knowledge with the Research Scholars & faculty members of the Department. The department has very healthy academic atmosphere and a congenial teacher-taught relationship.
