The first two semesters of the course cover topics required for a sound knowledge of both Biology-related and IT subjects. These include Cell Biology and Genetics, Immunology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Mathematics and statistics, Linux Programming, Programming in C, Python, And Biological Databases & Sequence Analysis. after successful completion of first two semesters of MScBI, if a student wishes to discontinue, such a student will be awarded the PG Diploma in Bioinformatics (PGDBI).
The Third and Fourth semesters aim at providing students with advanced training in areas like Genomics, Proteomics, Drug Design and Discovery, Programming with PERL and JAVA, DBMS, Data Warehousing and algorithms in Bioinfomatics. At the end of each even semesters (Second & Fourth) the students have to complete a Project Work.
