VISION
To make students understand the organisation of Life at various levels and to promote relevant interdisciplinary & applied approaches to excel in teaching and research.

MISSION
To impart knowledge about animal science and ignite a passion in this area which will enable the students to respect diversity of life and contribute effectively to the society.

OBJECTIVES

  • To make the students proficient in the various aspects of animal forms like their structure, functions, inheritance and reproduction, animal diversity, environmental studies and evolution.

  • To enable the students to formulate hypotheses, gather and analyze data as a part of their minor project work.

  • To train students critical and analytical thinking, experiential learning and communicative skills.

  • To develop entrepreneurial skills as it is incorporated into their learning process like vermicomposting, apiculture and ornamental fish keeping that equips the students to become self-employed and to generate employment.

  • Team work and individual efforts are encouraged among students that make them competent for the work place challenges.

Value added courses

• Entomology And Integrated Pest Management

EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES
Department of Zoology organizes an array of co-curricular activities every academic year to make learning beyond the classroom fascinating. Activities include seminars, workshops, guest lectures, interclass, interdisciplinary competitions, field trips etc.

The department also organizes activities related to the field of Life science to coincide with the National Science day. Vermicomposting workshop, apiculture workshop, ornamental fish keeping, Workshop for school teachers on practical skills in Life sciences, activities related to wild life conservation etc are also organized by the department.

Department conducts several interclass competitions under the banner “Zoo-Gen” Activities like, sketching, visual cues, quiz, cross word, drama, treasure hunt, and photography.

Field trips are organized regularly by the Department to provide the students an insight into the recent advances in research work in Zoology and also as a part of Industry - Academia collaboration. Some of the places visited are ICAR - Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, Bangalore, National Drosophila Stock Centre of Mysore University, Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry college, Hebbal and ICAR-National Institute of Animal Nutrition and Physiology, Adugodi, National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro-Sciences (NIMHANS).

Students are encouraged to present papers in National and International conferences and also to publish their research work in the in-house research journal for students called Scientia. Alumni are invited to give talks related to career guidance to the students. The department also brings out a student edited annual newsletter, “Genesis” which helps the students to empower themselves in the emerging field of life science. This also provides an important documentation record of the departmental activities. The Zoological Museum houses several rare specimens and also forms an important learning resource.

SHORT TERM COURSE OFFERED

• Fundamentals of Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics

Activities in Genetics

The staff and students of the department are involved in various research activities such as UGC Minor Research projects and students projects as a part of their curriculum. These projects include topics ranging from classical to advanced genetics study of gene and genotype frequencies of Mendelian traits in human population, Dermatoglyphics, Bioinformatics, Gene transfer, Karyotype variations in human disorders and Behavioural Genetics etc.
A host of co-curricular activities are organized during the academic year to take learning beyond the classroom and make it a fun oriented experience. Activities include seminars, workshops, guest lectures, interclass, interdisciplinary, intercollegiate competitions and field trips which are regularly organized. Teachers make it a point to go above and beyond job decription to organise activities such as Biosymphony, Biosynergy, Wildlife week, Intercollegiate exhibitions and Inter class ZooGen activities.
Field trips are organized by the Department every year to provide the students an insight into the recent advances in research work in Genetics and also as a part of Industry - Institute collaboration. Some of the places visited are an organic farm at Manjalagiri, the Centre for Molecular Biology at the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, National Drosophila Stock Centre of Mysore University, Nature camp at Kulgi, Dandeli, DNA fingerprinting centre, Madiwala, Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry college, Hebbal and National Institute of Animal Nutrition and Physiology, Adugodi.
Students are encouraged to present papers in National and International conferences and also to publish their research work in the in-house research journal for students called Scientia. Guest lectures are organized for the students every semester by well known resourse persons from the industry to increase their knowledge about the subject. Journal Club - This is an initiative for the final year students to develop skills in scientific writing, motivate the students to access the journals in the library including online journals and to critique these research publications. This inculcates in the students a scientific temper, motivating them to take up research as a career.

Eco Club

We know that Earth is under dramatic environmental pressure: our globe is warming, ice caps melting, glaciers are receding, coral is dying, soil is eroding, water tables are falling, fishes are depleting, and whatever remains of our forests is shrinking. And it is up to each and every one of us to change the World for the better.
With this concern in mind we the staff and students of the Department of Zoology and Genetics took up the initiative to start an Eco-Club at Jyoti Nivas College Autonomous, Bengaluru. An Eco-Club plays an important role in creating environmental awareness amongst the future generation. It is a platform through which we obtain knowledge about the environment and contribute towards improving it. Our Eco Club is a green initiative through which the Eco Crew learn to extend their boundaries and scope of formal education to take action towards improving their immediate environment. We want to show the World that WE MEAN GREEN. More Details
