Infrastructure

 

The Centre for Genomics is housed in a well spaced building having ample space for both laboratory works as well as teaching. The centre has two spacious laboratories and two spacious lecture halls that can accommodate about 20-25 students at a time with separate rooms for store, library, research laboratory, tissue culture, Drosophila culture and Microscopy room. There are also separate rooms for the Coordinator, the core faculty members and for the laboratory assistant. There is a common seminar hall which is shared by the Centre for Genomics and School of Studies in Neuroscience, Jiwaji University.
