For Women and Men
Duration: 2 Years
The curriculum of M.Sc. in Biosciences is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the major sub-disciplines of life sciences such as Molecular biology, Molecular cell biology, Biochemistry, Developmental biology, Immunology, Instrumentation for biological applications and Genetic Engineering. Strengthening the foundations in these aspects sets the stage for elective courses offered in advanced topics in the domains of Biotechnology. Laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment provide students with hands-on training in Animal and Plant Cell Culture, Microbiology, Molecular biology, Biochemistry and Bioinformatics. A dissertation project spanning the final two semesters of the programme equips students with essential laboratory techniques and trains them to design and conduct in vitro and in silico studies in topics aligned to the thrust areas of the Department of Biosciences. Weekly colloquia and lab meetings require students to make presentations on their progress to the faculty members and research scholars of the department thereby honing their communication skills and building confidence.
