B.Sc or equivalent with minimum 50% marks with Chemistry or Biochemistry as one of the subject.
Biochemistry, soul of life sciences, has a versatile scope in the field of Agricultural, Pharmaceutical, Nutritional and Medical Sciences. It explores all aspects of organisms from its chemical composition, complexities of its metabolism, its differentiation and developments to analysis of its evolution and behavior. Biochemistry has revolutionized modern day medicine with novice discoveries of Monoclonal antibodies, DNA finger printing, Gene Therapy and Immunotherapy. In many complicated diseases physicians are totally dependent upon biochemical findings at molecular level. Biochemistry is the chemistry of life. It encompasses all aspects of Biology, from molecules to cells, to organisms, to medicine and to ecology. The understandings of biochemistry have not only laid down foundation for biotechnology but have also revolutionized the modern trends in Biomedical Sciences.
Biochemistry deals with the study of the different process going on in the biological systems at molecular level, the nature of the chemical constituents of the living beings, their functions and transformations in the biological systems, and the chemical and energy changes associated with such transformations in the course of activity.
No field of science has seen vast expansion and exploration techniques as has been encountered in the field of Biochemistry. Due to the advancement of various technicalities including computerization this branch has come up in a big way to give benefits to the ailing population.The knowledge of this subject is fast growing and newer offshoot specialties are emerging from the parent subject of biochemistry such as nutrition, immunology, genetics, biotechnology, molecular biology, clinical biochemistry, biochemical pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, agricultural biochemistry etc. In every sphere, biochemistry is forming an important base around which life-sciences are revolving.
Department grooms students by imparting in-depth knowledge (both Theories and Practicals) of various core courses and interdisciplinary courses like Organic chemistry & Bio-molecules, Bioenergetics & Intermediary Metabolism, Enzymology, Biochemical & Biophysical Techniques, Plant Biochemistry, Cell Biology & Industrial Microbiology, Immunology & Advance Molecular Biology, Nutritional & Clinical Biochemistry, Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and quality control. Students are involved in research activities by assigning them small research projects under the supervision of faculty members which run parallel throughout the final year academic session. Students are also encouraged for short time research training in R & D laboratories of premier institutes and industries of the country.
After passing M.Sc. & qualifying NET/GATE the candidates can either do higher studies (Ph.D.) by seeking junior research fellowship. If he/she qualifies GRE/TOEFL etc. The candidates can seek higher studies at any Institute abroad. After completion of Ph.D. in Biochemistry plenty of job opportunities are there in the various fields like production of antibiotics, vaccines, genetic engineering, combinatorial chemical products synthesis. Students may take up teaching as a Lecturer in a University / College. The candidates may get a job of a Biochemist/ Scientist / Technical Officer either in Laboratories or somewhere else. He/she can be appointed as a Biochemist / analyst in a forensic laboratory. The candidate can setup his / her own biochemist / pathology / diagnostic lab in association with the medical practitioner. They can be appointed as a biochemist/ sales / marketing executive in companies manufacturing culture media, diagnostic kits and various types of experimental kits used in genetic engineering. The candidates can get a job as biochemists in distilleries, wine making beverage industries, petroleum exploration industries, metal extraction industries, water purification and waste treatment systems, as production executive in fermentation based Pharmaceutical Industries / Dairy Industries / Food Industries / Quality Control Department of above industries.
