Course programme

Genetics is the study of heredity and variation. It deals with genes, their function, chemical composition and inheritance of acquired characters and effects caused due to mutations.

The course deals with the study of Eugenics, Genetic engineering, Genetic diseases, Cloning, DNA finger printing, gene therapy, Forensic analysis, Recombination technology. Using instruments like ultra centrifuge, electrophoretic unit, sterilizer, pH meter, laminar airflow.

B.Sc., Genetics is a regular three years degree course of Bangalore University, which has higher prospects in the field of research and development. Conserving and utilizing the plants, gene banks management, in vitro conservation, in Situ Conservation - including genetic resource and farm conservation.

This course has higher job prospects in pharmaceutical industry in the making of DNA vaccines, genetically engineered insulin production. In medical laboratories for the detection of cellular oncongenes, tumor suppressor genes & viral oncogenes.

We live in an exciting world of genetic information. There are immense opportunities for constructive experiments which could improve the yield of major food crops. One of the limitations of crop productivity in our country is the shortage of N-fertilizers. This can be overcome by harnessing biological nitrogen fixation through genetic experimentation. Significant increase in yield potential can be obtained by mutation.

Triticale, a new food grain, is an example of a significant achievement made possible through cytogenetic techniques. This example demonstrates what the students of genetics can do for our country.

Research laboratories and forensic laboratories give much more importance to students who graduate from this course. After completing the course one can go for higher studies in Masters' degree in India or abroad.
