The faculty groups in the department are involved in different areas of research including Microbiology, Genetic disease analysis, Mutation analysis, Nanomaterials, Bioremediation and Bioplastic, Bioinformatics, Fermentation and Bioprocess Engineering, Plant & Animal Biotechnology, Genetic Engineering and Medical Biotechnology as mentioned below:
The Founder and PI of this laboratory is Professor Eliza Chakraborty. Earlier, Professor Eliza Chakraborty was with Epigenetics Laboratory, University of Southern California, Los Angeles. Since 2015 this lab at MIET has introduced Stemformatics, for the first time in india. Stemformatics is a field where stem cell biologist and bioinformatician can use the same platform to research towards effective personalized medicine, novel drug design for mankind.
International Society for Stem Cell Research reported this year that eighty different deseases can be treated using stem cells. Already 5000 people recieved stem cell therapy. So MIET Stem cell & Cancer Research Lab has focused on training students in this most dazzling part of biotechnology, with huge job prospects as per International and National demand. This lab focuses on present-day as well as Futuristic Stem Cell Research - Creating New Organs and Repairing Old Ones, Molecular epigenetics, and Cancer Stem Cell Targeted study for early detection of cancer & cure of cancer.
Due to changes in environments conditions plant & are exposed to stresses like drought, heat, salt and heavy metals which is manifested in enzyme profile & metabolites. Screening the different tolerant plants on the basis of enzymes has been undertaken. Photochemical like flavonoid, alkaloid, anthocyanin etc. exhibit antioxidative activity. Search for such antioxidative phytochemical as a step for chemopreventive agents to combat cancer has been initiated. Besides, other enzymes utilized in pharmaceutical industry are also characterized. Micropropagation of elite varieties of commercial crop for cultivation in Meerut region which can benefit farmers is going on. Efforts are going on for biopesticides which are ecofriendly and user friendly for farmers. Molecular markers are utilized for analysis of plant diversity.
Microbial metabolites are gaining attention for their commercial exploitations in several industries viz; food, feed, textile, detergent, pharmaceutical, paper and pulp industries. A variety of microbial metabolites such as enzymes, organic acids, antibiotics, biopolymers such as polysaccharides, polyesters, polyamides and polyhydroxyalkanoate, are produced by microorganisms. Microorganisms are used for the biotechnological production of metabolites with tailored properties suitable for application in many industries.
Fermentation has always been an important part of our lives: foods can be spoiled by microbial fermentations; foods can be made by microbial fermentations. In the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, fermentation is any large-scale cultivation of microbes or other single cells, occurring with or without air.
Nanobiotechnology is the merger of biological research with various fields of nanotechnology. Concepts that are enhanced through nanobiology include: nanodevices, nanoparticles, and nanoscale phenomena that occurs within the discipline of nanotechnology. This technical approach to biology allows scientists to imagine and create systems that can be used for biological research. Biologically inspired nanotechnology uses biological systems as the inspirations for technologies not yet created. For example, DNA nanotechnology or cellular engineering would be classified as bionanotechnology because they involve working with biomolecules on the nanoscale. Conversely, many new medical technologies involving nanoparticles as delivery systems or as sensors would be examples of nanobiotechnology since they involve using nanotechnology to advance the goals of biology.
The most important objectives that are frequently found in nanobiology involve applying nanotools to relevant medical/biological problems and refining these applications. Developing new tools, such as peptoid nanosheets, for medical and biological purposes is another primary objective in nanotechnology. New nanotools are often made by refining the applications of the nanotools that are already being used. The imaging of native biomolecules, biological membranes, and tissues is also a major topic for the nanobiology researchers. Other topics concerning nanobiology include the use of cantilever array sensors and the application of nanophotonics for manipulating molecular processes in living cells.
Recently, the use of microorganisms to synthesize functional nanoparticles has been of great interest. Microorganisms can change the oxidation state of metals. These microbial processes have opened up new opportunities for us to explore novel applications, for example, the biosynthesis of metal nanomaterials. In contrast to chemical and physical methods, microbial processes for synthesizing nanomaterials can be achieved in aqueous phase under gentle and environmentally benign conditions. This approach has become an attractive focus in current green bionanotechnology research towards sustainable development.
DNA fingerprinting tests analyze DNA, RNA or protein molecules to identify a disease, determine its course, evaluate responses to therapy or predict individual predisposition to a disease. Epidemiological studies on AIDS and HIV infected individual were undertaken to study the geographical distribution pattern of AIDS. Correlation studies were also performed between various biochemical tests (SGOT, SGPT, etc) and occurrence of AIDS. It was done with an aim to identify biochemical markers for early diagnosis for HIV infection.
Another major field of studying healthcare is pharmacogenomics. Pharmacogenomics takesadvantage of the fact that individuals have unique genomes representing their genetic makeup. Each genome is likely to react differently to a particular drug and dose amount. Genome analysis of various bacteria, viruses, plant and animals of economic importance were also undertaken in various research projects.
Burgeoning population and increased industrialization has led to accumulation of pollutants and wastes in environment. The understanding of molecular genetics has led to isolation of new enzymes and genes for treating hazardous waste. The enzymes are characterized for treatment of chloroaromatics, nitroaromatics, chloroaliphatics, detergents etc. Genes are isolated and microbial transformation and degradation of toxic chemicals is achieved. Environmentally favourable, low waste technologies, efficient and cost effective methods of recycling are designed.
Polyhydroxy alkanoates (bioplastics) have been optimized and achieved from cyanobacterial species and bacteria.
Chemical analysis of drinking water and waste water of Meerut and nearby locations are also undertaken.
The development and accumulation of huge data has led to development of database from where any desired data can be retrieved on the basis of query. The nucleotide and protein sequences can be retrieved and phylogenetic analysis be performed. Visualization of molecule is done.
Drug discovery deals with transformation of data into information and information into knowledge. The main process is identification of lead and lead optimization i.e. the process of transformation of lead into drug candidate.
Immunology and vaccine biotechnology is aiming to develop technology to diagnose, treat or prevent human diseases by applying basic science, medical expertise and advanced methods to living cells or part of cells. Conventional and non conventional methods of vaccine formulation were studied in our labs. In conventional methods many new species of bacteria and viruses are studied for their antigenic properties. In non conventional methods, wide variety of computational, mathematical and statistical methods is available with us. By using Immuno-informatics using the basic bioinformatics tools such as ClustalW,BLAST, and TreeView, as well as specialized immunoinformatics tools, such as EpiMatrix, IMGT/V-QUEST for IG and TR sequence analysis, IMGT/ Collier-de-Perles and IMGT/StructuralQuery for IG variable domain structure analysis
Department is involved in developing awareness among engineering students as it motivates them to involve in research under different areas of IPR. IPR provide protection of intellectual property in all areas of engineering and protect piracy.
The department of biotechnology is having state of art laboratories and various research project of importance are already in progress. For coming years, department is having a vision to develop pharmacogenomics, molecular modeling, mass level production of various enzymes and other important molecules for commercial purpose. As our institute lies in rich agriculture productivity area so institute is also planning to facilitate farmers with disease resistant varieties of various crops by micro propagation at larger scale at its tissue culture facility.

Bioinformatics (or computational biology) aims at solving biological problems using mathematical, statistical and computational techniques. Modern biological and medical research cannot be done without bioinformatics.
Bioinformatics is a multidisciplinary field in which physical sciences, life sciences, computer science, and engineering are merged to solve both fundamental and applied problems in biology
You will learn the fundamentals of bioinformatics, which include sequence analysis, protein and RNA structural analysis, genomics, phylogenetics, analysis of high-throughput data, machine learning methods etc.
Students with advanced bioinformatics skills are in high demand in both academia and industry because the new experimental methods produce very large amounts of data, which require computational analysis.
The purpose of the biochemistry lab is to introduce the experimental methods used in the research laboratory and to acquaint you with the properties of biomolecules such as amino acids, peptides, proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates. This course is intended to introduce you to some of the most widely used experimental procedures in biochemistry, including protein purification, qualitative and quantitative characterization of macromolecules and enzyme assays. You will also gain some familiarity with some of the types of equipment frequently used in biochemistry. The biochemistry laboratory course, like all laboratory courses, is an exploration of procedures.

It involves Isolation and identification of microorganisms, microbial growth, design of culture media, microorganisms as biocatalysts, environmental microbiology, quantitative microbiology, introduction to microbial genetics, and genetic engineering.
The cell is the basic unit of life. Every organism either consists of cells or is itself a single cell. Only as we understand the structure and function of cells can we appreciate both the capabilities and limitations of living organisms, whether animal, plant or microorganism. In Cell biology lab we study the different types of microscopes, different growth stages of cells and also check the osmolarity of cell in different types of solution. The convergence of cytology, molecular genetics and biochemistry has made modern cell biology one of the most exciting and dynamic disciplines in contemporary biology.
Genetic engineering labis the science of modifying the genetic material of a cell or living organism to produce a new trait in that organism, or to make a biological substance such as a protein or hormone. A transgenic animal is one whose genetic makeup has been modified through genetic engineering.
In Genetic Engineering lab we amplify the desired sequence of the gene with the help of PCR and identify the gene of interest with the help of Agarose Gel Electrophoresis, Identify the desired protein sequence by SDS PAGE.
The course will cover transmission and molecular genetics and their application to the solution of difficult practical problems.
In this lab students will learn key methods of microbial production (e.g. fermentation, recombinant protein production and purification). Practice in research project planning, in different methods for biotechnology.It is an integrated biological process laboratory experience, including fermentation with downstream bioseparation, for the production of a purified product of potential commercial interest. Features process measurement-analysis-improvement, metabolic pathway analysis, quality assurance, and safety.
The Lab course provides the basics of bioreactor technology to the student. It specifically focuses on bioreactor performance and operation and on the kinetics related to microbial growth, product formation, function of enzymes and transfer phenomena.
After completing this course, the student will be able to verbally describe the most common equipment, materials and methods related to biotechnological processes, microbial growth and cultivation and sterilization. The student will be able to apply different mathematical formulas for biocatalysis and for the bioreactor performance and use those to plan and analyze bioprocesses. The student will also be able to produce, analyze and interpret data from bioprocesses.
Plant tissue culture involves the growth of plant cells, tissues or segments for purposes such as regeneration or cloning large amounts of new cells, tissues or plants; to study development; to provide mechanisms of genetic engineering; or to produce valuable secondary metabolites found in plant cells. It is a process of generating exact and multiple copies of a parent plant, Cloning can be done by making cuttings, grafts, or even naturally, such as the "babies" or propagules sent off by spider plants. Plant tissue culture uses much smaller pieces of tissue in this cloning process. Of course, there are so many possibilities in this field that plant tissue culturists can do more than simply clone plants.
Instrumentation facility in the department is equipped with all the modern instruments required for sophisticated research. This includes gradient PCR,UV/Vis. Spectrophotometer, HPLC, Ultracentrifuge, Trinocular microscope etc. This Lab is suitable for conducting practical as well as research work.
