The DBT-AAU Centre for Agricultural Biotechnology has been established with a vision to preposition Assam Agricultural University and the whole of North-Eastern region with quality human resource with needed scientific acumen in the field of Agricultural Biotechnology, as well as to develop and provide gene based solutions utilizing the conventional and unconventional bio-resources of the region, for treating various biotic and abiotic ailments restricting productivity increase in various crops locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. The centre is a Public-Public Partnership between the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Govt. of India and Assam Agricultural University (AAU), Jorhat. With the mandate to undertake exploratory research in crop biotechnology, the centre has identified and taken up some futuristic research programmes like attempting gene based solutions to insect pests problem in grain legumes; soil acidity problem through microbial genomics; targeting drought tolerant genes in rice bio-resources of the region; enhancing organic agriculture through large scale production and generation of modern bioinputs etc.
