Research Programmes & Services
Currently, the major focus of the Division is on the following two aspects:
- Biochemistry of stress responses.
- Nutritional sustainability and enhancement.
- Tissue Culture Facility
- Proteomics Laboratory
- Facility for analytical estimations: UPLC, Real-Time PCR, NAL (Nutrient Analysis Laboratory) etc.
