|B Sc (Mi G C)|
B.Sc with MiGC combination is a three-year degree with equal preference given to all the three subjects. The combination comprises of a paper each in theory as well as practical.
In first year, students are introduced to the fascinating world of micro organisms by highlighting on the milestone achievements in microbiology, exploring them to various aspects of microscopy, sterilization classifications and characterizations by different organisms. They learn the basic concepts in virology, mycology and essentials of biomolecules. In genetics they learn fundamental principles taking examples from microbes, plants and animals. In chemistry, students study reaction intermediates in carbon chemistry; saturated and unsaturated alicyclic compounds basic knowledge on physical principles in various states of matter and understanding the structure and behavior of S & P block elements.
In second year, students will learn on highlights on nutrition, growth and intermediary metabolism in micro-organisms, microbial genetics, eukaryotic molecular biology, genome organization, fine structure analysis of gene, regulation of gene expression, gene mutation and repair, recombinant DNA technology. In chemistry students learn the synthesis and characteristics of carbon compounds with various functional groups. Inorganic chemistry they deal with trends in the properties of transitional and inner transitional elements, various theories of bonding in metals. They also learn principles of physical chemistry and their applications in phase equilibria and electro chemical cells.
In third year, emphasis is given on applied aspects like immunology, industrial, medical, food and environmental microbiology. In genetics, they are introduced to fundamental principles of population genetics and its applications, exposed to in-depth study of applied genetics in relation to plant, animal and microbial biotechnology. In chemistry, students learn about the study of various theories of bonding in inorganic complexes and their application in the study of metallo-porphyrins, synthesis and chemical properties of bio-molecules .study of reaction rates, feasibility and factors affecting reactions. They also learn about the separation techniques and physic-chemical methods of analysis.
Candidates who have passed the Intermediate Public Examination conducted by the Board of Intermediate Education, A.P., or any other examination recognized as equivalent thereto with BiPC with marks prescribed by the university and college are eligible for admission to B.Sc (Mi.G.C) 1 Year Course.
