    Ph.D Programme Admission-2013

    Ph.D Programme in Genomics

    Admission to Ph.D programme in Genomics is offered in the current year 2013
    The School of Biological Sciences has state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, excellent computer lab, Wi-Fi network connection, modern library facility with international journals
    The high throughput instrumentation facilities of the school include Automated DNA sequencer, Real-Time PCR machine, Robotic Liquid Handling systems, Flow Cytometer, Microarray, High Content Screening, Next Generation Sequencer, LC-MS etc
    Genomics is an important discipline in Biological, Biomedical, Industrial and Agricultural sciences and provides the global information on genetic factors and the genomic processes which in turn are related to the phenotype of organisms
    Genomics also involves a series of unbiased assays and approaches to understand the complexity and diversity of genomes
    Genomic approaches provide solutions in biomedical research by creating possibilities to new therapies for genetic and pathogen borne diseases
    Because of its immediate and considerable impact on global health, there is a demand for highly qualified and trained manpower in the field of genomics
