Happy Birthday, Biotecnika! What Happened 13 Years Ago? Find Out!
The year was 2006 and the internet was sold at 700 Rs for a 64 kbps connection in Bengaluru.
At approximately 7 PM IST on 11th October 2006, after a long tiring day, the founders of a future revolutionary company finally decided on a name. A name that changed the way BioSciences is read, understood and imparted.
Yes, 13 years ago, the seedling for India’s No. 1 Bioscience Web Portal, was planted with utmost care.
With the passing days and years, the seedling grew tall and spread its branches over the Life Science and Chemical Science students and provided them with the fruits of knowledge and career guidance. Today, on October 11th, we wish Biotecnika a very Happy Birthday.
We started BioTecNika with a modest aim—create awareness about the Biotech / Life Science field around us. As our beloved BioSciences field grows in power and size, they are also turning the table of opportunities that exist around us. To write about the complexity of our field with fairness, accuracy, and independence—tenets of a great organization—requires resources, people and of course all of you, our beloved subscribers.
Since its inception, Biotecnika has been supporting the career aspirations of hundreds of thousands of students through its detailed website, conducted workshops, International conferences, countless courses, amazing faculty members, and a dedicated, hard-working support team.

With countless names to decorate Biotecnika’s hall of fame, there are numerous other reasons why Biotecnika is the most popular students’ choice.
Every day, we find Biotecnika’s website flooded with information about the current scenarios of employment in Life Science and Chemical Science. A very detailed and updated list of all the current job openings, available internships projects and conferences along with general tips to succeed in one’s career is published. On a monthly basis, a well-organized newsletter is released which provides information about the ongoings in the research world and popular headlines for that period.
If you still wish to learn more about these, you may visit the website www.biotecnika.org and subscribe to the channel and portal if you haven’t done so yet.
Looking at a student’s busy curriculum, a user-friendly portal courses.biotecnika.org has allowed one to gather all educational information under one roof. With a detail-oriented teaching method and improvised technology, multiple courses have been designed both for self-learning as well as classroom training. Physical and virtual libraries have been provided for student aid. With a conceptualized and comprehensive test series, many students and toppers like Ms. Aruna, Ankita, Gurpreet, Sanhita have achieved their goal of qualifying competitive examinations.
Biotecnika believes in the concept that ‘learning never ends’, hence to enable students further, multiple industry-standard certification courses such as Molecular docking, Research Methodology, Artificial Intelligence, FACS, CRISPR, NGS have been designed, which has seen a thrust in the employability of the young minds.
Nobody likes bookish knowledge that has no industrial relevance or that does not bridge the gap between studies and employment. To overcome this, Biotecnika’s initiative of Virtualized International Conferences with unimaginable global participation has brought together with brilliant minds that spent the day discussing topics like Artificial Intelligence in Health and Bioscience, Life science career trends, CRISPR technology, etc.
To keep students connected all the time, Biotecnika has introduced its mobile app and WhatsApp connectivity. Through countless reviews and gratitude filled emails, popularity and use are evident. Youtube channel offers numerous podcasts, videos and concept animations on everyday topics and amazing science facts that intrigue young minds. Countless books, materials have been created in a manner to gain the most, through the least investment. In short, the institute has been determined and focussed to support a student, irrespective of their busy schedule or unreachable location, in order to be able to provide the country with the best of talent for overall development and growth.
The list does not end here. Once a student successfully qualifies, pursues their dream of research, they find it difficult to manage resources. To support them, there is a scope to ‘teach and earn’, where a student can associate with Biotecnika, provide course materials and then earn the benefits. They can also avail scholarship programs to help their research going, even if their fellowship terms have ended. A lot of times, research fellows find it difficult to manage their laboratory budget, finding the right quality of materials and also face occasional delays and disappointment. To avoid all this and limit the turnaround time and running around, Biotecnika offers a unique portal – Biotecnika Prime, where all lab supplies and chemicals can be observed, compared, availed at the best price and assured guarantee.
On this special day, we thank Biotecnika for all the different ways it has helped us achieve our dreams, and wish ourselves a very Happy Birthday !!
Today we embark on our fourteenth year — a journey that promises to be more adventurous and intrepid than any before.
Happy Birthday, Biotecnika!
