M.Sc. Medical Genetics & Molecular Diagnostics
(2 Years - Semester)
The availability of complete genome sequences of humans and many important pathogens has given insights into many human disease mechanisms. The underlying genetic mechanisms in the pathogenesis of various infectious and non-infectious diseases have opened many avenues into precise molecular level diagnostic procedures. The recent spur in molecular level understanding of diseases has led to tremendous advancements in the field of disease diagnostics. Diagnosis of disease has become a more precise science involving a combination of genetic, proteomic and biochemical tools. Understanding of these multi-disciplinary areas is essential for the diagnostic service industry. The course is designed to teach the technology, theory and practical approaches of molecular genetic methods to the diagnosis and understanding of human disease. Students would be taught scientific approaches to identify molecular biomarkers, develop and validate diagnostic assays. They will work on a six month research project that would make them learn contemporary research methods to answer specific biomedical questions. This area has varied career opportunity in Diagnostic Service, Pharmaceutical R&D, Medical R&D and entrepreneur avenues.

A Bachelor's degree in any branch of Life Sciences / Technology (Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Genetics, Agriculture or equivalent) or Health / Medical Sciences (Medicine, Dental, Nursing, Pharmacy, Allied Health Sciences, Veterinary or equivalent) from a recognized Indian or Foreign University. Students with B. Sc. degree in Physical and Chemical Sciences, are also eligible to apply if biology is taken as one of the subjects at +2 level.

Mode of Selection
Candidates for these Courses will be selected based on merit & personal interview.
