Study of topics namely cell and molecular biology, bioinformatics, biophysics, immunology, molecular genetics and genetic engineering will help students to gain advanced knowledge in the areas of zoology. Thus the course is designed to gain strong knowledge in zoology with practical applications of theory leading to research not only in zoology but also in other inter-disciplinary subjects.
