The potential areas of research in Biotechnology are so vast and mind-boggling that it is not possible to make a comprehensive list. Further, new areas of study emerge continuously. However, an indicative list is furnished here, so as to give a feeling of the possibilities.
Agriculture: Transgenics of rice, wheat, cotton, potato, and vegetables. Higher productivity
Basic research: On all aspects of molecular biology, genetics, genomics, proteomics, and neurosciences
Bioengineering of crops for biofuels and bioenergy
Bio-fertilizers and bio-pesticides
Bioinformatics: Algorithm design and development, software and tools for data mining and data warehousing applications. Strengthening infrastructure for handling complex and computationally intensive problems. Biological Data Curation, phylogenetics. Setting up dedicated network centres for developing data warehouses. Exploitation of microbial genome information. Training competent personnel.
Bioprospecting and Molecular Taxonomy: Prospecting, molecular characterisation and documentation of economically and ecologically important hotspots of biodiversity in the country.
