The students who want to do post graduate courses must have graduate or (BDS/ B.Pharma Medical Science /Biology / Clinical Microbiology /Microbiology/ Biotechnology/ Bioinformatics/Nursing Medical Laboratory /Technology or Equivalent) from recognized university. There are a lot of institutions which offering biotechnology undergraduates and post graduates courses (its duration is two years and is divided into four semesters). A biotechnology course are combination of technology and biology and includes subjects like Biostatistics, Plant Biotechnology, Enzymology, Metabolism, Genetics, Cell Biology, Analytical Biochemistry, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Genetic Engineering, Immunology, Molecular Biophysics and Bioinformatics, together with relevant laboratory programs.
Biotechnology is a new science called intelligent bioscience which would lead to a disease free, happy and more intelligent human habitat with longevity and high human capabilities, and offers an excellent learning opportunities and get trained the students in the respective field with theoretical and practical understanding of contemporary biology and biotechnology. It also provides employment opportunities in research, marketing and production in the fields like medicine and healthcare, animal husbandry, agriculture and environment industry.
Biotechnology combines the molecular biology and agenetic to create improved agricultural products, food animal feed, industrial materials and medicines. The following are the factors that are responsible for increasing career scope for biotechnologists. The recent studies have revealed that India has about 7.6% of total mammal species, 12.6% of bird species, 11% of fish and approximately 6% of the total flowering plants of the world. India has a good biotech market due to its high population rate. In next few years the consumption of the biotech products is expected to be increasing by four times of the present. The human needs and animal care market is studied to be growing by at least 20%. The biotechnologists have a great scope in the research laboratories, pharmaceutical companies, and agricultural, chemical and allied industries.
Biotechnology courses are research & development based subject in health and medicine, agriculture and animal husbandry, cell biology, ecology, soil conservation science, physiology of plants, biostatistics and other related fields of operation. There are good career opportunities in the field of Biotechnology students could be placed as scientist in the areas of Human health, pharma, animal health, animal husbandry, dairy, chemical and biochemical, food processing, crime and parentage disputes, agriculture, forestry & fisheries. A biotechnology course includes a Biochemistry, Genetics, Microbiology, Chemistry, Virology, Immunology and Engineering.
