Chairman's Message

The Department of Molecular Biology & Genetics was established in 2018, in the 12th meeting of Syndicate subsequently approved by the Academic Council at Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University, Shaheed Benazirabad, MBG offers the bachelor degrees programme of B.S 4 year in Genetics. All the degrees are recognized by HEC, accepted nationally and internationally. The aim of the department is to produce a highly trained human resource vital to the market demands in the field,l biology and the microbial genetics and recombinant DNA technology and to develop close ties with industry and the biomedical scientific community, and strives to rank within the most prestigious institutions worldwide. it has a very strong graduate program offering degree programs. The department has all basic facilities of teaching such as class rooms, research, , library and experimental field. We design our program to help students understand that genetics, botany and zoology is a way of thinking about how matter is constructed, organized, and functions and offers the specialization in the field of Plant and Microbial, Developmental Genetics, Human Genetics, Genomics and Systems Biology and Evolutionary Genetics.

Our Vision

Our vision is to conduct innovative research, teaching and outreach on the patterns in the field of genetics.

To produce erudite scientists in the field of Genetics, who render their services with a sense of dedication, motivation and hard work for strengthening the quality culture of life sciences in the country.

Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Molecular biology and genetics is to provide basic and applied genetic, education and trained in the field of , Genetics/biology.

To Focus on Modern Trends of Globalization in Improvement in the must Teaching, Learning and Research for the technical and intellectual skills necessary to facilitate creative problem solving.
