M. Sc. (Genetic and Plant breeding)

Course Details

Being a very important branch of applied science and Agriculture, through the genetic technology, disease resistant properties in plants and trees are developed that could fight against diseases attacking them. Food from this technique is also produced which are known in the form of G.M. foods- genetically modified foods. On the levels of the national and International, the contribution genetics scientists is enormous to giving a new direction in the field of agriculture, in growing disease resistant crops and ensuring greater confidence in food security.Genetics and plant breeding is a subject which plays an important role in the progress of the nationbesides giving self- satisfaction.
