Department of Botany

Established in 1924, the Dept. of Botany is one of the oldest seat of learning in this university. Originally, it was housed in the premises of Government College, Lahore, and M.Sc. teaching was conducted in collaboration with the staff of the College. The Dept. moved to the new campus in 1963 and was housed in various buildings before shifting to the present building in 1973.

Before 2001, only MSc and PhD programs were offered but in the past 17 years, the department has developed an elaborate program of teaching and research for BS, MSc, MPhil/MS and PhD. The Dept. is known by the research of its faculty members in the areas of Tissue Culture, Proteomics, Genomics, Molecular Genetics, Environmental Biotechnology, Palaeobotany and Palynology, Mycology and Fungal Systematics, Microbiology, Stress Physiology and Ecology. The Dept. has ten research laboratories with an elaborate research program involving national and international collaborations with academia, industry and government organizations. Currently, many research projects are being run by the faculty members.
The Dept has a Library, Computer laboratory, a Common Room, Botanical Garden, Greenhouses and Climatic rooms for research experiments.
