Biotechnology is highly multidisciplinary and fastest growing discipline, and past one decade has witnessed a Biotechnology Boom worldwide in the form of development of a wide range of new products including antibiotics, recombinant and synthetic vaccines monoclonal antibodies, microbial proteins, recombinant hormones, production of valuable transgenic and cloned animals. The maximal exploitation of Biotechnological devices through these modern technologies is the only potential tool to maximize the livestock and agricultural produce of the state in the shortest possible time.

Looking to the tremendous potential of biotechnology for improving the socio-economic status of farmers, tribals and other weaker sections of society, Madhya Pradesh Government has sanctioned a project on Establishment of Biotechnology centre at JNKVV, Jabalpur, funded by Madhya Pradesh State Agriculture Cooperative Board (Mandi Cess Fund), Bhopal with the budget outlay worth of Rs. 7.43 crore.
