M.Sc. Biotechnology

M.Sc. Biotechnology is our oldest programme that has undergone several refinements since its inception in 2011. It is an interdisciplinary programme offers courses in Stem Cell Biology, Bioprocess Engineering, Recombinant DNA Technology, Bioanalytical Techniques, Genomics, Bioinformatics, and Biostatistics. The programme also emphasizes understanding of fundamental principles through courses in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Microbiology, Virology, and Immunology. The programme provides training on theoretical components of these subjects as well as excellent hands-on experience in the well-equipped laboratory. The skill-based programme incorporates Research Project as an integral component that provides an opportunity for the students to get trained in independently drafting a hypothesis, designing a research project, and performing laboratory experiments followed by data analysis coupled with an opportunity to publish. The programme also has a provision for a one-year research project as a separate “stream” within M.Sc. Biotechnology programme with the sole objective of skilling in contemporary areas to work towards a good research publication to confer an edge over similar programmes in the country.
