Genetic Engineering and Genomics is considered to be one of the advanced and cutting-edge researches in the field of biological sciences and thus the curriculum structure of this domain is largely meant to enrich the scientific temper among the young minds. Advanced topics including Computational Biology, Genetic Engineering and its applications, Genetics and Genomics have been included so as to disseminate the technical know-how to learners which would be extremely significant for their future endeavours. The course structure of Genetic Engineering and Genomics domain is largely targeted for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The primary objectives of this domain are to enable and familiarize the students with the basic concepts of Bioinformatics and its significance in biological data analysis, recent tools used for genome analysis and their applications, plant tissue culture and most importantly to provide hands-on training on basic molecular biology techniques.
To impart basic knowledge of bioinformatics in in silico and genomics to the students studying agriculture.
To build a career in the field of Genetic Engineering and Genomics is extremely fascinating but challenging as it requires expertise in most of the advanced biological concepts. Multifaceted opportunities from various sectors including Government, academia, industry and health care can be availed.
- After the completion of the course, learners will be able to implement their technical (practical) experiences in their future research by getting enrolled to Ph.D. programs. They will also have better opportunities to serve as project associates in funded projects.
- Data scientists, genomics researcher, life scientists, genetic counsellor are some of the relevant positions offered to skilled personals in the industrial sector.
- Graduates can also build up their own start-ups.
