Molecular biology is one of the emerging fields of science having great importance in the field of research, academics and industries as well. The entire life of a molecular biologist is woven around the cell and the molecules.
Molecular Biology aims at providing students with profound expertise in the field of molecular biology, in the framework of a curriculum with an internationally competitive orientation. Students learn to understand and analyse the chemical reactions in cells on a molecular level and in context. This way, they broaden their knowledge of the methods in molecular biology, and are then able to work on complex molecular and biomedical questions independently, using state-of-the-art large-scale equipment.
DNA, RNA, and proteins coordinate all of the biological processes within the human body. By understanding the structure, function, regulation, and interactions of these molecules, scientists are offered valuable insight on the complex inner workings of the biological pathways that make life possible. The application of this knowledge has led to significant advancements in disease prevention and treatment, genetic engineering, and diagnostics development.

The program for molecular biology is designed to provide an intensive exposure to the theoretical concepts and experimental techniques of molecular biology. The concepts and techniques of molecular biology are the foundation for the studies of all aspects of biology in modern time. A focus on molecular biology, therefore, provides an excellent preparation for a wide range of advanced studies including basic research, medicine, bioengineering, and biotechnology. Considerable emphasis is placed on chemistry, biochemistry, and genetics for students enrolled in the program. As such, it is recommended for those students who have a particularly strong interest in this field of study.
