About the Course : MICROBIOLOGY is the basic science which deals with the study of microorganisms, their derivatives, biochemical properties, genetic makeup, metabolism and physiology, effects on human health and diseases and their interactions with the ecosystem. The fermentations, biocatalysis, microbial diseases, pathology, diagnostics, molecular techniques, food preservation, biogeochemical cycling, and production of novel compounds rely on microbes. In modern day biology, with upcoming trends of genetic engineering, microbes serve as the model systems for manipulations and applications as they are the simplest organisms and easy to handle. In this regard microbiology lays the foundations of applicative biology. Any other aspect of science is incomplete without a thorough knowledge of Microbiology. Different branches of microbiology lead to better scope and more openings in the fields of food, agriculture and medicine.
Outline of the course :The M.Sc. Microbiology Course is spread over four semesters in two years and offers all aspects of present day demands of industry and R&D. It includes basic studies of Microbial Diversity, Microbiological techniques, Microbial Genetics, Physiology, Immunology and Bioinformatics in the first year followed by applicative aspects such as Molecular Biology, Recombinant DNA Technology, Food, Environmental, Agricultural, Industrial and Medical Microbiology in the final year. All practical aspects concerning the above mentioned subjects are dealt in laboratories so that the students are fully equipped with tools of handling different aspects of Microbiology.
