The Department of Botany was established in 1967 and commenced its academic activities in 1968. Considering current teaching and research activities the name has been changed to Department of Plant and Molecular Biology in 2019. All biological science students admitted to the Faculty of Science are eligible to follow courses in Plant and Molecular Biology. In addition to the Botany discipline, a new discipline, Molecular Biology & Plant Biotechnology was introduced by the Department in 2003. 

The Department contributes to a 3-year degree programme (B Sc degree), B Sc (honors) degree in Botany and Molecular Biology & Plant Biotechnology leading to B Sc and B Sc (honors) degrees, with a view of producing graduates with knowledge and skills in this modern and fast developing area of science.
