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 involved modern genomics approaches such as transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and computational network analysis. The center focused on identification of genes involved in the biosynthesis of major chemical constituents in medicinal plants of importance to India. The outcome of the center resulted in the identification of genetically superior strains of high value medicinal plants but will also provided starting material towards metabolic engineering of plants and microbial hosts.
Research Collaboration (National & International)
The Department of Biotechnology, GOI is supporting skill development programme in Biotechnology. The objective of skill development programme is to provide is to provide high quality hands on training of tools and techniques to graduate students in area of Biotechnology (Quality Control Biologist) to make the young biotechnologist ready to take-up jobs in industries,hospitals, R&D laboratories.
HIMCOSTE is nodal agency to implement this project in Himachal Pradesh.
