Indeed, information and understanding have increased exponentially in the field of Biochemistry. It holds promises in areas like Clinical Diagnostics, Pharmaceutical Industry, Industrial Production of Enzymes, Fermentation Industry, Food and Dairy Industry.
A golden opportunity awaits these students in the areas of research and academics in fields as varied as molecular biology, genetic engineering, Neurobiochemistry, Enzymology, Endocrinology, Oncology, and Clinical Bio-Chemistry. The course encourages practical work based on research, thus creating a platform for advanced research. There is a scope for self employment in diagnostic laboratories
Specific Objectives of the course are:
- To provide in-depth knowledge of how the chemical in the plant and animals are made and regulated by teaching the metabolic pathways in health and disease.
- To train students in many independently to be employed by pharmaceutical , fermentation industries, Food and dairy industries, diagnostic labs, and research institutions in India and abroad.
- To provide an oppurtunity to think independently by assigning seminar topics as they are the future scientist to be able provide solutions to many incurable diseases.
The candidate must have secured 40% marks in the aggregate and have studied Chemistry and Bio-chemistry securing 50% marks in this subject at the B.Sc level and studied Biology at 10+2 or Pre University level.
