Plant Biotechnology and Tissue Culture Department was established in 2010. The laboratory has harboured several PDFs, Doctoral, and PG students to work. The division is engaged in developing protocols for rapid multiplication for prioritized medicinal plants,  re-introduction programs for RET species, analysis of important phytoconstituents, variations in levels of secondary metabolites, the role of mutation for higher production and elicitation of secondary metabolites, Agrobacterium-mediated transformation, etc. The studies on alternative sources for production of valuable bioactive compounds, such as endophytic fungi are also in progress.
