Postgraduate Department of Biochemistry

The department of Biochemistry was established in the year 2005. The department offers the post-graduate course in Biochemistry (Self-financing). Biochemistry deals with the chemistry of life, about the principles governing the interactions of individual molecules, and how those same principles apply at the scale of cells and living organisms. The curriculum is designed to provide students with a broad understanding across multiple disciplines in Bioscience during the first year. The courses are offered in collaboration with the Departments of Biotechnology and Microbiology. The second year of the programme deals with more advanced study of Biochemistry. 

To unravel the biochemical intricacies of life by understanding of molecular processes and develop innovative solutions for human health and beyond.


Provide a strong foundation in biochemistry principles through hands on laboratory experiments and to explore molecular mechanisms underlying biological processes by interdisciplinary approaches and to translate discoveries into practical solutions for health care,agriculture and industry.
