Biotechnology is all set to become one of the most important fields of this century. Aurora is one of the first colleges in the state to have started this course.
In first year biotechnology, students learn basics of cell structure, laws of inheritance, tools of inheritance, DNA duplication and basic concepts of biostatistics and bioinformatics. In biochemistry, they learn biomolecules their structure and function. 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 biotechnology students deal with structure and functions of biomolecules, the biocatalysts-enzymes, and gain knowledge about metabolism and energy production and transfer. They gain basic knowledge of microorganisms growth and kinetics and also deal with spectroscopy, chromatography etc. In biochemistry students learn energy transformations occurring in the cell. They also learn the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipid and nitrogen compounds. In chemistry students learn the synthesis and characteristics of carbon compounds with various functional groups. In organic chemistry they deal with trends in the properties of transitional and inner transitional elements, various theories of bonding in metals. Principles of physical chemistry and their applications in phase equilibria and electro chemical cells.
In third year biotechnology, students learn about the gene, its organization in prokaryotes and eukaryotes followed with the transcription and translation along with its regulation. They will also learn the construction of r-DNA and necessary tools for r-DNA production and about human defense system-cells, organelles types and disorders. In biochemistry, students will learn about physiology of digestion, cardiac cycles, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and vision. Students also learn the nutritive aspects with RDA and vitamin roles and disorders and how It deals with clinical aspects of various disorders and basics of human immune system. 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.
