Biochemistry Department

Overview

  • GOAL 
     The broad goal of the teaching of undergraduate students in biochemistry is to make them understand the scientific basis of the life processes at the molecular level and to orient them towards the application of the knowledge acquired in solving clinical problems.
  •  
  • OBJECTIVES
    • KNOWLEDGE 
       At the end of the course, the student should be able to :
      1. Describe the molecular and functional organization of a cell and list its subcellular components;
      2. Delineate structure, function and inter-relationships of biomolecules and consequences of deviation from normal;
      3. Summarize the fundamental aspects of enzymology and clinical application wherein regulation of enzymatic activity is altered;
      4. Describe digestion and assimilation of nutrients and consequences of malnutrition;
      5. Integrate the various aspects of metabolism and their regulatory pathways;
      6. Explain the biochemical basis of inherited disorders with their associated sequelae;
      7. Describe mechanisms involved in maintenance of body fluid and pH homeostasis;
      8. Outline the molecular mechanisms of gene expression and regulation, the principles of genetic engineering and their application in medicine;
      9. Summarize the molecular concepts of body defence and their application in medicine;
      10. Outline the biochemical basis of environmental health hazards, biochemical basis of cancer and carcinogenesis;
      11. Familiarize with the principles of various conventional and specialized laboratory investigations and instrumentation analysis and interpretation of a given data;
      12. The ability to suggest experiments to support theoretical concepts and clinical diagnosis.


 

    • SKILLS 
       At the end of the course, the student should be able to:
      1. Make use of conventional techniques/instruments to perform biochemical analysis relevant to clinical screening and diagnosis;
      2. Analyze and interpret investigative data;
      3. Demonstrate the skills of solving scientific and clinical problems and decision making;


 

    • INTEGRATION 
       The knowledge acquired in biochemistry should help the students to integrate molecular events with structure and function of the human body in health and disease.
