About Department: The Department of Agricultural Biotechnology established in OUAT under the ages of College of Agriculture, Bhubaneswar with the financial support from Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India has been providing two year-post graduate teaching programme, M.Sc. (Ag.) Biotechnology, since 2002 and also introduced Ph.D programme in Agril. Biotechnology from the session 2010-11. The department admits the students to a Postgraduate Biotechnology Programme through an All India Combined Entrance Test (AICET) conducted by Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi for admission to M.Sc. Agril. Biotechnology programme. The students selected through AICET in Biotechnology are awarded a scholarship of Rs. 4500/- P.M. throughout the two years of their study. The department imparts integrated teaching and Research programme in Cell and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Tissue Culture, Genetic Engineering, Immunology, Molecular Cytogenetics, Stress Biology, Proteomics, Genomics and Bio-informatics. It has well developed laboratory facilities, green house facilities, seminar/conference rooms, computer lab and well furnished library with latest books on Biotechnology. Department is continuously engaged to develop high quality scientific human resources and engaged in evaluation, production and protection of crops. Modern biotechnological technological knowledge and research have played a pivotal role in growth, sustainability and profitability of agriculture production in agriculture and allied sectors of the state of Orissa in the back drop of frequent crop loss due to flood, salinity and draught. To ensure the food security, making farming a profitable enterprise and protect the ecological foundation including the rich bio-diversity, concerted efforts have also to be made for producing technically competent man power for the present and future, developing, refining technologies and its effective transfer to the farmers of various agroclimatic zones of the state through the Zonal Research Stations and Krishi Vigyan Kendras.

  • To impart education to rural people of the state and the country in Agriculture Biotechnology.
  • To promote advancement of Research and learning to generate appropriate technology and manpower in Agriculture Biotechnology and allied sciences.
  • To disseminate the theoretical and practical knowledge to the benefit of common people and farmers of the state and the country.

  • To offer sound theoretical knowledge on different branches of Agricultural Biotechnology.
  • To impart practical training on different biotechnological methods using agricultural and horticultural crop plants as experimental material.
  • To acquaint the students with the recent developments in the field of Plant tissue culture, molecular biology, molecular cytogenetics, genetic transformation, stress molecular physiology, phytochemistry and microbiology.

Book: Molecular Stress Physiology of Plants by Springer
Gyana Ranjan Rout; Anath Bandhu Das (Eds.)

2013, Approx. 430 p. 116 illus., 45 in color. Hardcover version
ISBN 978-81-322-0806-8 Due: January 31, 2013 (net) 149,95 € About this book
  • This book covers both abiotic and biotic stresses in plants supported by updated literature reviews and experimental data
  • A special chapter that includes the stress during the reproductive stage

Various stress tolerance and adoptive mechanisms are discussed and developed using novel approaches and out-of-the-box thinking Crop growth and production is dependent on various climatic factors. Both abiotic and biotic stresses have become an integral part of plant growth and development. There are several factors involved in plant stress mechanism. The information in the area of plant growth and molecular mechanism against abiotic and biotic stresses is scattered. The up-to-date information with cited references is provided in this book in an organized way. More emphasis has been given to elaborate the injury and tolerance mechanisms and growth behavior in plants against abiotic and biotic stresses. This book also deals with abiotic and biotic stress tolerance in plants, molecular mechanism of stress resistance of photosynthetic machinery, stress tolerance in plants: special reference to salt stress - a biochemical and physiological adaptation of some Indian halophytes, PSII fluorescence techniques for measurement of drought and high temperature stress signal in crop plants: protocols and applications, salicylic acid: role in plant physiology & stress tolerance, salinity induced genes and molecular basis of salt tolerance mechanism in mangroves, reproductive stage abiotic stress tolerance in cereals, calorimetry and Raman spectrometry to study response of plant to biotic and abiotic stresses, molecular physiology of osmotic stress in plants and mechanisms, functions and toxicity of heavy metals stress in plants, submergence stress tolerance in plants and adoptive mechanism, Brassinosteroid modulated stress responses under temperature stress, stress tolerant in plants: a proteomics approach, Marker-assisted breeding for stress resistance in crop plants, DNA methylation associated epigenetic changes in stress tolerance of plants and role of calcium-mediated CBL-CIPK network in plant mineral nutrition & abiotic stress. Each chapter has been laid out with introduction, up-to-date literature, possible stress mechanism, and applications. Under abiotic stress, plant produces a large quantity of free radicals, which have been elaborated. We hope that this book will be of greater use for the post-graduate students, researchers, physiologist and biotechnologist to sustain the plant growth and development.
