M.Sc Biomedical Sciences
Course Structure Syllabus
The Biomedical Sciences is a multidisciplinary area of study. The field has exploded with wide range of multidisciplinary aspects including Human Genetics, Biotechnology, Immunology, Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics, Genomics, Biostatistics and Forensic Science. Of late, the field of “Biomedical Sciences” have accelerated the growth in a wide range of biomedical industries involved in the development of molecular diagnostic devices and technologies, pharmaceuticals, veterinary biomedicine and medical interventional strategies. The incidence of infectious, communicable and non-communicable diseases have still a major problem and the global community is facing a new challenge in the new millennium with outbreaks such as tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, dengue, chikungunya, swine-flu and more recently the COVID-19 pandemic. The proposed “School of Biomedical Sciences” will facilitate the human resource development in Biomedical Sciences, process and product development in Biomedical Science and Technology. The new PG course is proposed to be offered in the School of Biomedical Sciences as per CBCS pattern.
A Bachelor’s degree in any branch of Life Sciences (Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Genetics or Equivalent, Physical and Chemical Sciences (Physics and Chemistry), Medicine, Veterinary and Agriculture from any recognized Indian or Foreign University. Students with B.Tech., Degrees in Biotechnology, Computer Science, Information Technology and Bioinformatics with Biology at +2 level are also eligible. A maximum of 20 students will be admitted to this course every year.
M.Sc. Microbial Gene Technology
Course Structure Syllabus
M.Sc., Microbial Gene Technology programme is offering from the Department of Microbial Technology since 1996. The aim of this programme is to generate gene technologists with skills of modern molecular techniques. The wide range of gene technology such as gene transformation, gene cloning, gene sequence and gene expression input would be given to the students through practical, theory and collaboration with international reputed scientists. The new arena of science has been developed from M. Sc Microbial Gene Technology i.e rDNA Technology. After completion of this programme, there are plenty of opportunities in various research institutes, pharmaceutical industries and State and Central Government organizations. This Masters programme is fully research oriented programme offered by the Madurai Kamaraj University. The course is offered under Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) grade mode according to UGC norms.
A Bachelor's degree in science courses– Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, Microbial Technology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Genetics, and etc- is either a Major or an Ancillary subject. Students from professional courses such as MBBS., H.VSc., B.D.S, B.Pharm., B.Sc. (Agriculture) and related subjects from a recognized Indian or Foreign University are also eligible.
