Department of Botany

The Department of Botany under the aegis of School of Natural Sciences at Girijananda Chowdhury University, seeks to establish itself as a premier and innovative centre in the north-eastern part of the country for the dissemination of the ever-expanding field of plant biology. We strive to train and equip the future generation of plant biologists with the latest and emerging concepts and cutting-edge technologies while establishing a firm foundation of classical theories and scientific approaches.

Vision

With new academic programs integrated with intensive laboratory and field explorations, our students shall develop the capacity to understand and appreciate the intricacies and complexities of plant life and its value and roles in the ecosystems and nature. Our vision is to create a value system in our students for nature that will in turn lead to a cultural milieu that will enhance the societal capacity with resilience for Climate Change and assurance for sustainable development.

Mission
  • To expose and acquaint the students to the huge diversity of plant lives and the inherent ecological and economical worth of the diverse plant species.
  • To enable the students in the handling of the conventional and the contemporary tools in exploring plant life, from molecular, cellular to the omics levels of genome, transcriptome, proteome and metabolome.
  • To engage our students in conservation and sustainable use of the unique plant resources of the North-East.
