require experts with practical training in recombinant DNA methods and plant
genetic engineering. The Post M.Sc Certificate Course in Plant Genetic
Engineering is designed to generate aptitude in research and to provide intense
practical training in recombinant DNA methods and Plant Genetic Engineering to
the post graduate students who aspire for a career in Plant Biotechnology.
The students will receive complete practical training in plant transformation
and analysis of transgenic plants.
M.Sc Certificate Course in Plant Genetic Engineering is a five month course
offered at Post M.Sc level from August to December every year. The course
offers a theory course in Plant Genetic Engineering, a laboratory course
in Recombinant DNA technology and a laboratory course in Plant Genetic
Course is offered once in a year for 5 months (August - December).
