USBT is equipped with advanced equipments costing over Rs. 5 crores and has been ranked first in terms of library and infrastructure, and an overall seventh in India by Cyber Media Research (publishers of biotech magazine Biospectrum). USBT is the youngest among all Top Ten Biotech Schools. 2005 survey, it was ranked third in the country for B.Tech (Biotechnology) education. The USBT has established state of the art laboratories for teaching and research in different areas of biotechnology viz. plant tissue culture, animal tissue culture, genomics, proteomics, microbial technology and bioinformatics. USBT recently, acquired automatic DNA sequencer and FT-NIR facility also. From August 1st 2010, we are going to shift to new state of the art labs at the Dwarka campus, where we would strive to ensure that new labs are GLP compliant in order to attract industrial funding. Considering the demands of training and research in the post genomic era, we plan to actively pursue projects and collaborative programs in plant/animal/microbial functional genomics, stem cell biology and industrial biotechnology. Additional facilities are also being planned such as animal house, green house, radioisotope facility, departmental library, bioinformatics lab, nano-biomaterials, tissue engineering, synthetic biology, and pharmaceutical/nutraceutical teaching and research facility.
