The Masters’ programme endeavours to provide the students with excellent training in Biochemistry emphasizing on solid background of basic concepts as well as rapid advancement in the field.  In addition to theoretical knowledge, considerable emphasis is also given to offer the students hands on experience in the forefront areas of Biochemistry. In the first year they interact and train extensively with all the faculty members in several basic areas of practical biochemistry learning to design, execute, analyze and present scientific data. They are individually allowed to do experiments and are exposed to very sophisticated, state-of-the-art equipments. Besides, an important feature of our programme pertains to the dissertation carried out by every student during the second year in the supervision of a mentor. They are given a short research project with a defined problem that provides them an opportunity to grow in a research environment. It exposes them to various aspects pertaining to research including the habit of scientific reading, research methodology, analytical ability, organizational capability, independent thinking and scientific writing. Thus, they are well trained to join any laboratory of modern biology and start right away without much lag period. This has borne fruit for our masters’ students since many of them have co-authored papers and reviews in peer reviewed international journals, attended and presented posters at national conferences. 

Each faculty in the department takes immense pride in teaching and almost equally share teaching responsibilities. The courses taught by the faculties are as follows:

Prof. Anil. K. Tyagi –   Molecular Biology –I

Prof Vijay K. Chaudhary  –  Recombinant DNA Technology and Applications - I and II

Prof. Prahlad C. Ghosh  –   Cell Biology – I

Prof. Debi P. Sarkar –   Membrane Biology; Immunology and Immunotechniques

Prof. Suman Kundu  –   Proteins: Structure, Folding and Engineering; Enzymes and Techniques in Biochemistry

Prof. Alo Nag  –   Molecular Biology – II; Developmental Biology
