All over the world, Biotech organizations have worked relentlessly and developed vaccines against SARS-Cov2, causal organism for the current Covid-19 pandemic. India is the biggest producer of Covid vaccine by virtue of Indian biotech companies like Serum Institute, Pune and Bharat Biotech, Hyderabad. These organizations are playing a pivotal role in production and supply of vaccines for several countries of the world and thereby saving millions of lives. Another biotech organization, Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories, Hyderabad is also playing an important role in the production of several lifesaving medicines in this context of the current pandemic situation, including an oral antiviral drug along with DRDO. TNU’s B.Sc. in Biotechnology courses is design to provide students with a strong fundamental idea and advanced study of cell and tissue culture, genetics, biomedicinal and non-medicinal products, pharmaceuticals, bioprocesses, new technologies and engineering. The designed curriculum, laboratory facilities, research based teaching, projects, and opportunities to get trained in leading biotechnological firms will make students in this programme competent for both industrial sector and academia.

Career Prospects

Be a Biotechnologist and make an impact to everybody’s life. Healthcare biotech is benefiting more than 350 million patients around the world with biotech medicine to treat and prevent every day and chronic illnesses. Energy biotech in the form of biofuel is helping to fight global warming as an alternative and safer form of global energy. It has led to significant reductions

in greenhouse gas emissions with the aim to reduce 2.5 billion tons of C02 equivalent per year by 2030. Agricultural biotech offers new, improved and adapted agricultural crops to reduce poverty and can increase food security for a growing global population. Environmental biotech is to solve environmental problems like depletion of forests and water resources, resultant biodiversity loss; climate change-related crop pattern as well as disease pattern changes; waste/ effluent management issues in a sustainable way. Marine Biotech is involved towards development of useful products and process from the marine resources, for aquaculture production and productivity increase Bioinformatics deals with bio-IT services, which covers computational biology, computational chemistry, genetic sequencing etc.
