B.Sc Honors in Botany

B.Sc Honors in Botany

This course of Botany seeks to give the students a comprehensive knowledge that would develop a critical insight into the specialized areas of Botany with an applied approach starting from cellular details in cell biology, to molecular approach in Biochemistry. Genetics has become an indispensable component of almost all research in modern biology and medicine. In order to meet the challenging demands, subjects like Principles of Genetics, Plant Biochemistry, Microbiology, Molecular and Microbial Genetics, Recombinant DNA Technology, Biotechnology, Biochemical techniques would orient the students in modern research areas. Besides this, important and core issues related to agriculture are also taught, given its importance for Pakistan. It is compulsory for all the students to conduct a research project. The research would be carried out in most active and applied areas like Plant Tissue Culture, Biotechnology, Eco-physiology, Phyto-physiology, Biochemistry, Phyto-pathology and Plant Anatomy and Environmental Biology.
