B.Sc. in Biochemistry, Genetics and Biotechnology

Why take this course?

Have you ever thought of life inside you? Are you interested to explore about the fascinating world of viruses and also the amazing subject Biochemistry? If yes, this course is apt for you. It will identify you as a person who has greater knowledge of a research working environment and experience of research techniques in your chosen subject. This will prepare you better for pursuing your research and also entering into a good industry. B.Sc. in Biochemistry, Genetics and Biotechnology is a study of all living forms, micro and macro organisms. Genetics is an intriguing branch of biology which deals with the study of genes carrying information and determines the inheritance of the features in living organisms. Biochemistry is a study of molecular science that deals with living processes by considering an organism’s biological molecules like their functions and interactions with themselves as well as the molecules in the environment. Biotechnology is a combination of biology and technology which deals with the aspects of using living systems ranging from microorganisms to macroscopic systems for the benefit of human kind.

What will I experience?

  • Specialize in the field of Environmental and Agricultural biotechnology, Bioprocess Engineering, Recombinant DNA technology, Bioinformatics, Proteomics, Biostatistics, Intellectual property rights, Enzyme technology and plant tissue culture.
  • Will be able to explore varied topics like History, Mendelian and Classical genetics, Molecular genetics, Features of inheritance, Molecular basis for inheritance, Gene expression, Genetic changes and DNA sequencing, Genomics and Gene therapy.
  • Biochemistry approaches to understand life and death, how cells can be turned into bio-factories, how to make improved crops, how trillions of cells assemble to form a life, why we get old and what causes diseases.

What opportunities might the Course lead to?

  • There are job opportunities in hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and other health services like genetic counseling and diagnostic laboratories. One can also pursue higher studies such as a Master's program like M.Sc., PhD and Integrated PhD programs. After a Master’s Degree in hand the students are better equipped to explore avenues in the conventional and modern fields of Genetics.
  • With an Undergraduate degree with Biotechnology as a discipline, one can find job opportunities in Pharmaceutical Industries, Healthcare, Food processing Units, Enzyme based Industries, Dairies, Wineries and Breweries. With a sound knowledge of the nuances of biotechnology, one can venture into startups and become an entrepreneur.
  • Biochemistry finds application in clinical and forensic science laboratories, pharmaceutical industry, agrochemical companies and in food /beverages industries. They can also work in the Department of Agriculture, the National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency which are some of the government agencies.
