Biotechnology is an application of knowledge about living organisms and their components. St. George College of Management, Science & Nursing, since its inception, has been constantly putting in dedicated efforts to the utilization of biotechnological developments in its laboratory, which is furnished with the latest equipments for facilitating current developments in biotechnology. The state-of-the-art apparatus and incubators in our laboratory help the students in areas of animal reproduction, plant tissue culture, animal and plant genetics, production efficiency and food quality. Students in the biotechnology laboratory are trained in identification of genes that confer a high degree of disease resistance in animals and plants, thereby leading to a reduction in the use of drugs in animal and plant production.
Special attention in our laboratory is given to the search of key genes data, associated with economically important traits such as growth, meat quality, milk composition, ovulation rate and others. This gives the student a clear basis for biotechnology in general with respect to its recent growth. Further our laboratory gives the student an insight in biotechnology developments, offering the potential to manipulate the genetic makeup of animals and plants by the addition, modification or deletion of genes.
