Department of Genetics was established in 1984, as a part of the Faculty of Inter-disciplinary & Applied Sciences at the University of Delhi South Campus. In its brief period of existence the department has developed into an advanced centre of study in Genetics recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC) under their Special Assistance Programme (DRS-III) and Department of Science & Technology under their FIST programme (Level 2) and DU-DST PURSE programme (Phase II). Two of the faculties also have Centers of Excellence supported by the Department of Biotechnology.

The department conducts a two year post-graduate programme in Genetics, a one year M. Phil. programme in Biotechnology and a Ph.D. programme. Through its interdisciplinary approaches involving interactions within the department and with different institutes and departments across the country, the department not only offers a unique opportunity to imbibe knowledge from experts in different fields but also helps maintain a high academic standard. Teaching in the department is also supported by research activities in frontline areas being pursued by the faculty of the department. M.Sc. students are encouraged to interact intensively with the faculty as well as research scholars of the department.
