B.Sc Biotechnology and Biochemistry

OVERVIEW AND SCOPE OF MAJOR DISCIPLINES

Biotechnology
Biotechnology harnesses the power and prowess of the living world to address issues and offer solutions in the areas of research, health-care, agriculture, and environment. It is a multi-disciplinary science involving a variety of distinct subjects where living organisms or their derivatives are modified and put into effective use in catering the welfare of humanity. Applications of Biotechnology have been found in several sectors including Agriculture, Food Science and Medicine. The course introduces the students to detailed study of Cell Biology, Genetics, Microbiology, Biophysics, Molecular Biology, Recombinant DNA Technology, Genetic Engineering, Environmental Biotechnology, Animal Biotechnology, Immunology, Industrial Biotechnology and Plant Biotechnology.

Biochemistry
Biochemistry deals with understanding living organisms in the chemical perspective. The profound impact of Biochemistry on health & medicine, agriculture, pharmaceutical and food science and many other fields is increasing rapidly. With the advent of lifestyle disorders and tumour diseases, chemical markers have been the most sought after parameters for diagnosis and clinical care, and the relevance of Biochemistry to society has become more apparent. This course covers all the fundamental and emerging aspects of Biochemistry by providing detailed insights into different branches of chemistry like organic, inorganic and physical chemistry and their applications in understanding life.
