Biochemistry is inherent to improved human welfare. The recent technological advances and growth of knowledge database in Biochemistry has markedly enriched our knowledge about the nature of life including the manifold advantages of new technologies applied to ancient techniques in developing useful products based on the diversity of natural biological activities. The Department with its expertise in the field of Animal and plant biochemistry, Enzymology, Immunology, Molecular biology, Bioprocess Technology etc. is steadfast in providing quality teaching and research. This commitment to excellence has its foundation on an innovative course structure backed up with well-equipped laboratories and experienced and motivated faculty. The Course lay emphasis on understanding of fundamental concepts also facilitating learning and application of biochemical techniques. The department also has runs an active Society of Biochemists which organizes various scientific activities including debates, guest lectures and poster sessions to further enhance the educational experience of the students. The Department is dedicated in ensuring that scientific temper is instilled in young and eager minds for a future in research and development.

Lab Facilities

The department has well equipped laboratories to cater the needs of Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Doctoral programmes in the Jacob School of Biotechnology & Bioengineering. There are two Undergraduate, one Postgraduate, one research laboratories. The instrumentation of the labs are well equipped to cater to the needs of young undergraduate students and also to conduct quality research in the field of Biochemistry & Bioprocess Technology.
