Description




Stream: Biochemistry        
Duration: 3 Years

Course: M.D.

Course Type: Doctorate

M.D. in Biochemistry is a 3- year long postgraduate course. Biochemistry is the study of the structure, composition, and chemical reactions of substances that occur in living systems. The subject emerged as a separate discipline when scientists combined Biology with organic, inorganic, and physical Chemistry, and started to explore such areas as how living things acquire vitality for sustenance, the compound premise of heredity, and what fundamental changes happen in living beings at the occurrence of disease.

Biochemistry is applied to dentistry, general medicine, and veterinary medicine. In the specialty of food science, biochemists research ways to develop abundant and inexpensive sources of nutritious varieties of food, determine the chemical composition of foods, and develop methods to extract nutrients from waste products, or invent ways to prolong the shelf life of food products. In the specialty of agriculture, biochemists study the interaction of herbicides with plants. They examine the structure-activity relationships of compounds, determine their ability to inhibit growth, and evaluate the toxicological effects on surrounding life. The duration of the course is three years.

The average salary offered to successful postgraduates of the course in India varies between INR 30,000 and 90,000 monthly, depending on the candidate’s expertise and reputation of the hiring organization.
