Department of Biotechnology


Biotechnology refers to the employment of various types of “technology” to use, exploit, modify or improve existing biological processes for a specific purpose; its overarching goal is to enhance the quality of human life – be it directly or indirectly. The field has already shown immense promise and further innovations are certain to culminate dramatic improvements in existing technologies and outcomes. Biotechnology is the next wave of change that is likely to be as sweeping and invasive as that brought about by information technology. It is the interdisciplinary combination of biological, medical and technical sciences. The developed countries are focusing to expand and capitalize on biotechnology. Pakistan has recently initiated investment on the applications of biotechnology, especially in agriculture, pharmaceutical, textile, leather and chemical industries, health, bioinformatics and environmental biotechnology. Therefore, we at Qarshi University are determined to impart quality education in this exciting and promising field to its undergraduate and graduate students.
