Course programme

Biochemistry is the study of the chemical processes in living organisms. It is a science concerned with the chemical constituents of living cells and the reactions and processes they undergo. The main objective of biochemistry is the complete understanding at the molecular level of all the chemical processes that maintain life. Biochemistry encompasses large areas of cell biology, molecular biology and molecular genetics. Knowledge of biochemistry is essential to all life sciences. Biochemistry and medicine are intimately related. Health depends on the harmonious balance of the biochemical reactions occurring in the body and disease reflects abnormalities of biochemical reactions or processes. A sound knowledge of biochemistry is necessary in understanding the concepts of molecular genetics. With the advances made in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, the relevance of biochemistry has increased many folds. Biochemical approaches are often fundamental in illuminating the causes of diseases and designin
