Course programme

The School of Life Sciences has been established with an emphasis on interdisciplinary teaching and research in modern biology.

The School consists of four Departments:

1) Department of Biochemistry
2) Department of Plant Sciences
3) Department of Animal Sciences
4) Department of Biotechnology

Each of the three departments offers M.Sc. and Ph.D. programmes of study. The Department of Biotechnology offers M.Sc. Biotechnology and M.Tech. in Bioinformatics. These two courses from the Department of Biotechnology are organised with the participation of faculty of the three departments of the School as well as the Schools of Mathematics and Computer / Information Sciences & Chemistry. Under Distance Education Programme, the School is participating in two P.G. Diplomas: one in "Environmental Management" and the other in "Medicinal Botany".

Department of Biotechnology

The Department of Biotechnology at School of Life Sciences offers M.Sc. Biotechnology and M. Tech Bioinformatics Programmes. Nearly thirty faculty members drawn from three departments, Animal Sciences, Biochemistry and Plant Sciences combine their efforts to offer this multidisciplinary course.

The Department of Biotechnology offers application oriented and most-sought after courses in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. Innovation based training will be imparted to the students with a special emphasis on understating the basic concepts of the biological processes in pursuing research in frontier areas of biotechnology and bioinformatics. At present, the Department carries research in the areas of Biophysics, Molecular Therapeutics, biology of HIV and Cancer and Neurochemistry, Neurodegenerative diseases and stem cell therapy. The thrust area in which the research in Department focus is Molecular therapeutics for infectious and neurodegenerative diseases.

Ph.D in Biotechnology

The students carry out their work under the supervision of the faculty member and are periodically advised by the doctoral committee. They actively participate in Journal clubs, research work presentation and submit monthly progress report of the research work. The research students have to present their research work in a comprehensive seminar before submission of the thesis.
