About Department- Under the scheme of vocationalisation of education by University Grants Commission of Government of India, Sindhu Mahavidyalaya introduced the subject of Biotechnology in 1999 at undergraduate level of teaching.
Since last three years, B.Sc. final year students of our department are producing 100% passing result and also standing in the top positions among all institutions of the university.
SMV Centre for Biotechnology has collaboration with other colleges and universities and also with national laboratories. Our institution provides research facilities to train graduates and post graduates in major and minor research projects sponsored by college as well as government agencies.

Above 160 gene sequences submitted to GenBank maintained by US National Centre for Biotechnology Information as part of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration have been contributed by the Department of Biotechnology, Sindhu Mahavidyalaya.
These genes include:
o    Glucokinase isoform 1 related to familial diabetes (MODY 2) from Sakoli population
o    16S rDNA for identification of Human Microbiome (Human flora of skin and oral)
o    16S rDNA sequences isolated from river, sewage and clinical samples through genomic and metagenomic approach
o    Antibiotic Degrading Gene Sequences (CTX, blaoxa-2) and Xenobiotic Degrading Gene Sequences (dmpl, tfdAα and amoA)

More than twenty pass-outs of M. Sc. Biotechnology have joined integrated MS-Ph.D. program in the Universities of USA, UK and Australia.
