Introduction to the course
Biochemistry is the amalgamation of chemistry and biological sciences.It brings together all of the sciences to study the chemical and physical processes that occur in living organisms. It truly is the science of life.Also, the course provides an introduction to several important metabolic pathways and bioenergetics, including state of the art modern techniques relevant to present day research in academia and industry.
It is for the most part, a science of twentieth century. In the modern development of the subject, the scope of classical Bio-Chemistry has between it and other chemical and biological disciplines have become distinct. Indeed, information and understanding have increased exponentially in the field of Biochemistry.
What are the learning outcomes?
To provide in-depth knowledge of how the chemical in the plant and animals are made and regulated by teaching the metabolic pathways in health and disease.
To develop better understanding of the discipline through taught modules and independent learning i.e. hands-on practical training.
To develop hardcore specialization in various diversified areas of biochemistry and its application to Medicine, Agriculture, Environment, Neutraceuticals and functional food etc.
To acquire better awareness of the major issues at the forefront of the discipline.
To design and carry out experiments (safely) and to interpret experimental data.
To focus on a scientific problem and to develop an original research proposal on it.
To train students in many independently to be employed by pharmaceutical , fermentation industries, Food and dairy industries, diagnostic labs, and research institutions in India and abroad.
To provide an opportunity to think independently by assigning seminar topics as they are the future scientist to be able provide solutions to many incurable diseases.

Placement & Career Opportunities / Research Opportunities
Biochemistry is much more diverse in terms of jobs and business scope, it is purely knowledge and technique based subject which could give tremendous opportunities.
The biochemistry courses will provide students with the skill and techniques that underpin careers in microbial, medical, pharmaceutical, animal, plant biotechnology, bioprocess technology, plant and animal breeding and the development of genetically modified organisms, dairy, agriculture, forestry fields etc.
