Our History

Department of Agricultural Biotechnology established on 15th Jan, 2009 owes its origin to the erstwhile Biotechnology Centre which came into existence in the year 1991 and later renamed as Advanced Centre of Hill Bioresources & Biotechnology in 2002. The department runs M.Sc. Agricultural Biotechnology program with financial support from Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India. This program has collaboration with Institute of Himalayan Bioresource Technology (CSIR), Palampur for the purpose of teaching activities.
