•Laminar airflow hoods
•Hot air ovens
•Racks, vials, tips etc.
Fourth semester comprises of dissertation, a minor research program to be done in the CSIR, ICAR institutes or industries of Biotechnology. Our collaboration with several research laboratories, institutes and industries have made the ways swifter for the students to accomplish this minor research program. They are supposed to apply at various places by sending the recommendation letter forwarded by the Dean, School of Sciences. Dissertation reports are to be submitted by the students published following the norms and regulations formulated by the school of sciences. Students of our university have received training from institutes of national level like AIIMS Delhi, CDRI Lucknow, National research center on Camel, Bikaner, NDRI ,Karnal, CMAP Lucknow, DRDO Jodhpur, Indian Institute of Oceanography Goa , National Institute of Immunology Delhi, CFTRI Mysore , CCMB Pune, CSWRI Jaipur, BARC Bombay, IARI PUSA Delhi, JNU Delhi, CAZRI Jodhpur, TIFR Mumbai, NCL ,Pune, MSU Baroda.
After the completion of the dissertation program the student has to submit a thesis of approximately of 100 pages along with the certificate of the institute where He/ She has done the dissertation work.
