B.Sc Molecular Biology Overview

Program Details

The B.Sc Molecular Biology Program at Guru Nanak University prepares students for a career in industry, private consulting, and government. Molecular biology is the branch of biology that deals with the molecular basis of biological activity. This field overlaps with other areas of biology and chemistry, particularly genetics and biochemistry. The Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology course chiefly concerns itself with understanding and the interactions between the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between the different types of DNA, RNA, and protein biosynthesis as well as learning how these interactions are regulated. The duration of the Molecular Biology course is three years and it is a career opening in nature. We teach Systems Biology that allows students to appreciate the complexity of the biological systems as a whole. The secret of success of the department lies in the academic environment and close ties between teachers and students. While one enjoys such flexibility, a rigid discipline is maintained as far as the classes and projects are concerned.

Career Prospects

The job profiles after the B.Sc Molecular Biology course are Molecular Biologist, Patent Information Specialist, Technical Officer, Technical Assistant, Jr. Marketing Manager etc.
