P.hd in Yeast Biology
It is clear that the next few decades will see exciting new discoveries in the field of the biological sciences. Basic research in Biology has already made a huge impact on medicine, agriculture and the environmental sciences, and this is bound to increase in the years to come.
TIFR conducts research in modern biology at The Department of Biological Sciences, TIFR-Mumbai . Model organisms for research have been chosen keeping in mind the advantage that each system offers for the question being studied. Hence some biologists focus their attention on single celled organisms- bacteria, yeasts, unicellular plants and the malarial parasite. These studies provide information on the molecules and processes occurring within individual cells. Others researchers focus on more evolved organisms such as Drosophila , Mouse and Zebrafish as model systems to understand development and behaviour in more complex systems.
Biologists at TIFR are addressing a spectrum of questions ranging from the function of single genes/proteins to behaviour of complex organisms.
