  •              The Post Graduate Department of Applied Zoology was started in 1993. The Department offers M.Sc., M.Phil & Ph.D degrees in Applied Zoology & Wildlife and Management. The Department is well equipped with facilities and infrastructure. It is supported by three permanent and six guest faculty members, and four non-teaching staff. Major thrust areas of the research in the Department include Genetics, Developmental Neuroscience, Bio diversity, Aquaculture, Toxicology, & Physiology. M.Sc., students are trained in various aspects of Zoology, namely Genetics, Molecular Biology, Biotechnology, Environmental pollution, Toxicology, Genomics, Proteomics & Bio-diversity. During the past eighteen years of existence, the Department has produced thirty PhDs and twenty M.Phils and published more than two hundred research papers in various peer reviewed journals of India and abroad. Presently Sixteen students are pursuing Ph.D. The two staff members namely Prof. B. B. Hosetti and Dr. Nagaraja have visited United States of America, England and Nepal for higher studies.

    Future Expansion/Diversification Plans :
    The Department is aiming at the establishment of well equipped research laboratories to take up research in thrust areas of the dept, namely Molecular Genetics, Neurobiology, Biodiversity, Aquaculture, Toxicology etc. To train M.Sc., students in modern biological disciplines such as Genomics, Proteomics and Genetic Engineering, Computer laboratory will be established. The curriculum of the department including syllabus would be modified comprehensively. That would help our students better taught and trained.
