Department of Agricultural Biotechnology

Agricultural biotechnology is a cutting-edge science incorporating biotechnology and agricultural science. Genetic engineering, cell and tissue culture technologies of biotechnology are combined with the technologies of agricultural sciences.

Agricultural biotechnology has assumed a critical role of securing food resources both in quantity and in quality utilizing flora and fauna biological resources, developing advanced biomaterials, treating plant and animal disease, and preserving the global environment.

The Department of Agricultural Biotechnology conducts research on biological resources, animals, plants, microbes to meet the needs of humanity by solving food issues, environmental problems and diseases collaboration with the knowledge of biotechnology, strategic industry. The program carries out research on high value-added biomaterials and fostering future leaders in this academic field.

The Department of Agricultural Biotechnology encompasses six programs: Program in Food Science and Biotechnology; Program in Animal Science and Biotechnology; Program in Applied Life Chemistry; Program in Plant Microbiology; Program in Entomology; and Program in Biomodulation. The Department supports professors and graduate students' research activities with the Brain Korea 21 Projects implemented by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology.
