Welcome To Department of Botany
for thousands of years. They provide aesthetic beauty as well as materials for our basic needs. Today our world presents new and complex problems that were never dreamed of a century ago. For instance, increasing human population is linked to environmental problems of gigantic proportion. Coupled to the need for more food is increasingly greater environmental impact. Air and water pollution increase while biological diversity is reduced. Recent progress in technology and molecular biology provides powerful new tools that can help us solve these and other challenging problems. Some of the tools you might learn to use include: electron microscopes, radioisotopes, digital imaging analysis, polymerase chain reaction, cell and tissue culture, and satellite imaging.
Botany can offer multiple career options to willing candidates. Students pursuing Botany as a career can opt for educational institutions, private or public sector companies in agriculture or forestry, biotechnology, environmental protection, drugs, genetics research, and food industries as career options. Plant biologists who enjoy working with people have a wide range of opportunities in teaching and public service Candidates learning Botany will learn about the fundamentals of how plants help in sustaining lives. Also, they will work for a clean energy economy for the easy survival of the generations. Presently, new technology is used to understand the structure of plant cells further, and research is being done on genetic engineering of plants in an attempt to solve the problem of world hunger. Research is also focusing on ecology and climate change.
