DBT Sponsored  Center of Excellence

The Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology has awarded Dept. of Bioptechnology & Bioinformatics, Jaypee University of Information Technology a Programme Support on “Elucidation of Biosynthetic Pathways & Development of Gene Markers for High Value Endangered Medicinal Herbs of North-Western Himalayas” under the scheme of Centers of Excellence & Innovation in Biotechnology. The programme support will involve modern genomics approaches such as transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and computational network analysis. The center will focus on identification of genes involved in the biosynthesis of major chemical constituents in medicinal plants of importance to India. The outcome of the center is expected to not only result in the identification of genetically superior strains of high value medicinal plants but will also provide starting material towards metabolic  engineering of plants and microbial hosts.
