School of Biological Sciences

The main objective of the School is to become the pioneer of modern interdisciplinary biological sciences by integrating emerging disciplines with biological sciences. The School of Biological Sciences aspires to excel in research and teaching. Our mission is to create new knowledge about biological processes and principles, and to disseminate this knowledge by educating and mentoring students, scholars about both the factual knowledge and the experience of discovery in biology.


Department of Applied Biology

Academic Focus:

Applied biology is a broad area where biological knowledge is put into applications, mainly through uses of modern advancements in science & technology. Likewise, biotechnology is the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make useful products, or "any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use". We aim at enriching knowledge on the natural resources of the region which are yet to be exploited. Special importance is given on the human resource development from the young talents of North East so that competent groups of scientists as well as technical personals will be produced. Biochemistry is the study of molecule(s) and their involvement for creating a living entity. Biochemistry is the basis for biological scientific investigation. It took centre stage when the scientific community realized that not only the genes but behavior of various bio molecules are responsible for the progressing and cure of diseases.
The department has made collaborations with CSIR-NEIST, Jorhat, different R & D organizations, IITs, CRRI-New Delhi, Hi-Tec Ireland and many other universities.
