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.

M.Tech in Bioinformatics

Sponsored by the UGC under Innovative program and approved by AICTE): M.Tech Bioinformatics is a state-of-the-art course, designed to train students in theory and techniques in genomics, proteomics, and computer aided modeling and drug design including hands-on practice using statistical packages such as R-package and SAS. The first batch of students has obtained attractive placements from reputed software and bioinformatics companies. The course is offered jointly by three Schools of the University viz., the School of Life Sciences, School of Chemistry and School of Mathematics & Computer Information Sciences and the Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics (CDFD), Hyderabad.

The Course structure includes Computational Techniques, Proteomics, Basic Statistics, Basic Mathematics and Introduction to Molecular Modeling in the First semester; Genomics, Databases, Bioinformatics, Introduction to Molecular Mechanics in Second semester, Drug Design and Advanced Bioinformatics in the third semester. Students are encouraged to choose one elective course in second and third semesters from other Schools. The students will carry out a project work during 3rd & 4th semesters under the guidance of a faculty member either at University of Hyderabad or CDFD.

The programme also offers remedial courses in the first semester to bring all the new students, who may not have sufficient experience with computers or biology, to a common level.
