About the Center

The Research Department of Botany was established in 2004 and is well-equipped with state-of-the-art instruments funded by DST and UGC, including GC-MS, Oxygen Electrode, Thermal cycler, Millipore water purification system, deep freezer (-20oC), cooling centrifuge and UV-Visible Spectrophotometer. The research specializations encompass Angiosperm Taxonomy, Plant Physiology and Biochemistry, Plant Tissue Culture and Molecular Biology, Fungal Taxonomy, Environmental Science, Ecophysiology, and Microbiology. The department has a rich research history, having completed diverse project work funded by DST, UGC, KSCSTE, BRNS, and MoEF on various topics. Notably, the department has actively contributed to the exploration of the mangrove forest ecosystem in northern Kerala. To date, the department has produced 19 Ph.D. graduates, and their collective research output includes more than 400 published articles. The Department of Botany continues to be a hub of academic excellence, research innovation, and environmental exploration, nurturing the next generation of botanists and contributing significantly to the scientific community.
