Master of Science



“The qualification required to apply for the program is a minimum of 50% marks in the respective bachelor’s degree or any Life course from a recognized university. Students who are pursuing final year bachelor’s program are also eligible to apply” for MSc Biochemistry


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.

Course Highlights

The Biochemistry course at JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) is designed to provide students with the understanding of fundamental biological processes at a molecular level, contribute to solving of medical problems, and the discovery of safe and effective drugs. The highlight of the course is that, in addition to formal classroom teaching, well-planned lab sessions, and interactive tutorials, exposure to experimental tools used in the industry and research is provided through a carefully designed curriculum.

  • Understand the principles that underlie various reactions and processes in plants, animals, and humans
  • Acquire knowledge in advancing areas like bioenergetics and enzymology
  • In-depth understanding of biochemical, molecular biological, and genetic processes
  • Develop an aptitude to carry out research, and analytical and interpretation skills
