M.Sc. Botany

M.Sc. Botany Course for Girls

Botany is the scientific study of plants including their structure, growth, reproduction, metabolism, physiology, development, genetics. disease, treatment and evolution. Knowledge of molecular mechanisms underlying cellular processes such as DNA replication, transcription, and translation. It applies various laboratory techniques for studying cells and molecular biology, including microscopy, DNA isolation, PCR, and gel electrophoresis. Understanding the diversity, classification, and evolutionary relationships of cryptogamic plants (algae, fungi, lichens, bryophytes).

Understand the practical applications of knowledge about gymnosperm anatomy and diversity in fields such as forestry, conservation, horticulture, and palaeobotany.

By understanding plant development, a person can understand the formation of different part of plant. Understanding the physiological processes in plants, including photosynthesis, respiration, transpiration, and nutrient uptake. Knowledge of plant hormone signalling pathways and their role in growth, development, and stress responses.

 

By understanding plant reproduction, a person can understand how seed and fruit is formed in plant. It also includes the internal structure of pistil and stamen, morphology, anatomy, and development of reproductive structures in flowering plants, including flowers, gametophytes, and seeds.

A person can understand the mechanisms of pollination, including pollen transfer, pollen-pistil interactions, and reproductive strategies in flowering plants, including self-pollination and cross-pollination.

A person gains knowledge of the techniques used in plant biotechnology, such as tissue culture, genetic transformation, and molecular marker analysis. Develop skills in experimental design, data collection, and analysis related to plant reproduction research, including field studies, greenhouse experiments, and molecular techniques.

Understanding of the fundamental processes involved in plant reproduction, including pollination, fertilization, seed development, and fruit formation. about plant reproduction in agriculture, horticulture, forestry, conservation, and biotechnology, including crop improvement, hybrid seed production, and genetic engineering.

Communicate effectively about plant reproduction concepts, research findings, and applications through oral presentations, written reports, and scientific publications, demonstrating the ability to articulate complex ideas to diverse audiences.

Familiarity with advanced techniques such as molecular biology, genomics, and metabolomics applied in plant physiology research.

During the last semester dissertation program students learn about effective communication skills for presenting research findings in written reports, oral presentations, and scientific publications, as well as for engaging with healthcare professionals, policymakers, and the public.

Ethical awareness and understanding of responsible conduct in microbiological and pathological research, including considerations for biosafety, biosecurity, and ethical guidelines for human and animal research subjects.
