INSTITUTIONAL BIOTECH LABORATORY
GOVT. ZIRTIRI RESIDENTIAL SCIENCE COLLEGE. AIZAWL. MIZORAM
Since 2012, Biotech Hub has been established with funding from the Dept. Biotechnology (New Delhi). The Hub has been established to serve as a platform for teaching and undertaking research. Hands-on training and teaching are given to students as well as faculty members on the latest techniques in biotechnology. A number of outreach programs have been conducted for Higher Secondary School students. The Hub is functioning smoothly and is being used for research works by teachers and also for conducting practical classes. Several facilities are procured through this project for conducting basic routine experiments.

List of Papers produced from Institutional Biotech Hub
Institutional Biotech Hub has been providing a platform for conducting experiments by students since established in the college. The parental department, Biochemistry is taking role in maintaining the equipments and other relevant responsibilities. Though the project funding had already ended in 2016, the laboratory is still one of the fundamental platforms for life science students in carrying out practicals every semester. It offers convenience to the students as well as teachers for conducting prescribed syllabus practicals and related research experiments.
