In the early 1970’s, the discovery of a group of enzymes called restriction endonucleases revolutionized the field of biology. This landmark discovery was one among many that gave birth to the interdisciplinary field of biotechnology. Modern biotechnology is an interdisciplinary science that welcomes students with a spirit of discovery and inquisitiveness. It invites students to contribute to a global field that aims at utilizing living organisms/parts thereof, and biological processes in developing useful products in a large scale for human use, especially of medical and agricultural importance.
It is my immense pleasure to welcome you to the Dr. D.Y. Patil Biotechnology & Bioinformatics Institute (DYPBBI), Dr. D.Y. Patil Vidyapeeth, Pune for developing a career in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. DYPBBI is dedicated to train and develop students in the field of Biotechnology. DYPBBI offers 4 year B. Tech. (General and Medical), 5 year integrated M.Tech. and 2 year M.Sc. programmes in the areas of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. We also offer Ph.D. programmes in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. Learning at the Institute is supported by adequate and up-to-date infrastructure facilities including subject-specific laboratories and all relevant and modern instruments required for training.
At the Institute, we have adequate number of quality faculty with expertise in various sub-areas in Biotechnology & Bioinformatics. International exposure and dedication is our other strength. We pay substantial attention to the essential requirement of hands-on experience through research projects. In this way, we endeavor that the students become competent for further studies and employment at various organizations including industry.
Beyond this, DYPBBI is an exciting place for co-curricular and extra-curricular events such as symposia and seminars, students’ fests, quiz competitions, Science-day activities, blood donation camps and other such activities. These events provide students an opportunity to develop management and communication skills, as well as creating an excellent ambience for education in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. We are very proud of our past students, many of whom are well-placed after completion of their studies. I, along with my excellent team of student-centric teachers and administrative staff, welcome you to the exciting field of biotechnology through the DYPBBI.
