Cradled in the lap of mountains at the foothills of auspicious Trikuta, besides the river Tawi at an altitude of 1030 ft. is Jammu. This 'city of temples' has many places...
The Department of Botany came into existence as an independent Department in 1998 from the erstwhile Department of Biosciences, University of Jammu. Courses at MSc. level are designed to take care of both the classical and contemporary aspects of Plant and Microbial Sciences. Within a short span, the Department earned a name as a centre for postgraduate studies and research. The hard work put in by the teachers and more so by the students started yielding dividends right from the very beginning. Alumni of the Department have excelled in various fields mainly in teaching, research and administration. The Department has both the expertise and infrastructure to help students opt for getting basic as well as advanced training in various areas of Plant Sciences including ecology, mycology, cytology, cytogenetics, molecular biology, biosystematics, reproductive biology and plant pathology.
Department has created a state of art instrumentation facility equipped with important instruments like Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), UV-Vis Spectrophotometer, Gel Doc, Refrigerated High Speed Centrifuge, Rota-evaporator, Compound and stereo-microscope, Cell imaging System, Thermo cycler. For field experiments a botanical garden, cactus garden, greenhouse and glasshouse are also established. The Department is also having a herbarium cum museum housed in its botanical garden.
