Know About the College

The 'College of Animal Biotechnology' is a constituent college of the 'Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University' and is situated on the main campus of the University at Ludhiana. The college aims towards directing the research to the needs of the farmers in the field of animal sciences by promoting translational research in the area of genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, vaccinology, diagnostics, molecular biology, stem and cell biology. The college offers a graduate program B.Tech. (Biotechnology), post graduate programs viz. M.V.Sc. (Veterinary Biotechnology) / M.Sc. (Molecular Biology and Biotechnology) / 'M.Sc. (MBBT) with specialization in Animal Biotechnology' and Ph.D. (Veterinary Biotechnology)/ Ph.D. (MBBT). Besides, the College also offers a Six-Week Short Course on Bioinformatics and one year PG Diploma in Molecular Biology and Genomics.

The college is also conducting translational research in the various fields of biotechnology having direct or indirect implications on animals, particularly livestock. The college harbours numerous laboratories which are well equipped with sophisticated equipment to work in various fields of biotechnology and life sciences.
