The Department of Microbiology was established in 2013. The thrust areas of the department include extracellular enzymes of microbial source, plant growth promoting rhizobacteria, antibiotics discovery and solute transport system in bacteria. The Department offers courses on general microbiology, microbial diversity, agricultural microbiology, environmental microbiology, industrial microbiology, food microbiology, immunology, medical microbiology and microbial genetics.
The Department offers ample scope to students and faculties for academics and research. The class size is kept large enough to provide a vibrant learning environment but small enough to allow close interactions between the faculty and the students. Postgraduate students in the Department gain valuable research experience through mandatory research project which is practical training of the subject offered as a part of the course curriculum.
The department is well-equipped with modern laboratories to provide quality teaching and research opportunities for students. The department has the facilities like UV-Vis Spectrophotometer, Refrigerator, Autoclave, Laminar Air flow, Ph meter, Light microscope, Incubator, Transilluminator, Weighing balance, Magnetic stirrer, Vortex, and Gel electrophoresis apparatus.
