Department of Microbiology


Microbiology is a fundamental multidisciplinary topic that studies microorganisms. Microbiology is the study of the behavior and life cycles of microbes. UG Microbiology founded in 1998-1999 and received permanent affiliation status in 2009-2010. PG Microbiology established in 2003-2004. Our department of Microbiology began offering M.Phill. Degrees in 2007-2008. Our students earned 20 UG and 29 PG ranks. The Microbiology Department is well-equipped with classrooms, laboratories and tools. The department that offers the Skill Based Elective course Herbal Medicine is largely concerned with the sources and ingredients of natural medications.

The department encourages students to complete their project work, which will prepare them to do higher-level research. Students are encouraged to participate in UG seminars, which will prepare them to give presentations and participate in other activities.
