Department of Botany


Started in 1964, with a Pre-degree batch, the Botany department soon scored great heights by commencing the U.G. programme in 1982 and P.G. in 2004. Thanks to the pioneering works of the committed and dedicated teachers of the department such as Prof. K. V. Jacob, Prof. Dr. Sr. Lizy Paul, Rev. Dr. Mathew Maleparambil, Prof. Sr. Alplonia, Prof. C.O. Varkey, Prof. Santhamma Peter, Prof. James Philip, Prof. George Mathew Murikken, Prof. Rosamma Thomas and Dr. Johnson Joseph. But for their selfless service the department would never have achieved its present glory. The department has 3 minor projects to its credit. The department conducts the Add-on Course ‘Certificate Course in Plant Tissue Culture’.
