Biochemistry



The Department of Biochemistry runs a full time B. Sc. Honours Course in Biochemistry. The subject of Biochemistry enables to explore all aspects of an organism from basic questions about its chemical composition, through inquiries into the complexes of its metabolism, its differentiation and development to analysis of its evolution and even its behavior. Biochemistry is a science whose boundaries now encompass all aspects of biology, from molecules to cells, to organisms, to medicine and to ecology.

As the explication of natural phenomena rests more and more on biochemistry, its inclusion in undergraduate curricula in biology, chemistry, and the health sciences becomes imperative. And the challenge to us is a formidable one as how to familiarize students with the essential features of modern biochemistry.

We need to design so as to communicate the fundamental principles governing the structure, function, and interactions of biological molecules to students encountering biochemistry for the first time. We aim to bring an appreciation of the science of biochemistry to a broad audience that includes undergraduates in biology, chemistry, or premedical programs as well as medical students and graduates in the various health sciences for whom biochemistry is an important route to understanding human physiology.

The department also collaborates with the departments of Biotechnology, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Pisciculture, Mathematics, Physics, Statistics and Computer Science to conduct related papers for the students.
