The ongoing B.Sc. Life Sciences course was introduced by the Faculty of Science from the academic year 2005-2006. Broadly, the same course has now been changed to semester-based scheme and shall be effective from the current academic year 2010-2011. However, the opportunity presented by the semester-based scheme has been used for some revision to accommodate the widening horizons of the discipline of biological sciences. Specifically, the subjects on computational skills and bioinformatics have been included so that students can keep pace with the new and expanding information in the field. Two new disciplines: “Food, Nutrition and Health” in Semester II and “Introduction to Medical Diagnostics” in Semester III have been introduced to provide better employment opportunities to Graduate students. In addition, six papers of chemistry covering almost major streams of chemical sciences that should be taught to biology students have also been included. The course content also lists new practical exercises, especially in molecular biology so that the students get a hands-on experience of the latest techniques that are in current usage both in the advanced research laboratories and in Industry.
