Syllabus for the Courses:
MMB 101: Microbial Diversity
The aim of the course is to provide a deeper understanding of the genetic and functional diversity of microorganisms. This course paves way for developing the concept and     understanding of the students  towards   origin and evolution morphological metabolic and molecular characteristics   genetic and physiological diversity of microbes. It will also emphasize the  role of microbes in elemental cycling and environment.
MMB 103: Microbial Metabolism
This course will try to develop the concepts and improve skills of the students required to understand the physiology and biochemistry of microbes. It will cover the basic metabolic pathways and modifications. This course will teach the students how to apply the theories of bacterial cell physiology and metabolism to current problems such as engineering microorganisms to produce biofuels and other products.
MMB 102: Molecular Biology
The course covers the gene organization in prokaryotic cells. Course will familiarize students with the process of replication transcription post-transcriptional modifications and translation in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes.
MMB 104: Enzymology
The course provides a thorough understanding of Enzymology principles fundamental properties of enzymes catalytic mechanisms and enzyme kinetics. The course also provides an overview of enzyme purification localization of enzymes enzyme immobilization and applications of enzymes in various industries. This course covers  fundamentals to applications necessary for the useful exploitation of enzymes both as tools for the enzymatic analyses and as biocatalysts.
Biostatistics is essential to understand the interpretation and analysis of scientific data. This course covers the basic tools that can be used for the collection analysis and presentation of data specifically in research experiments. The course enables the students to understand the importance of setting up experiments in triplicates in repeat and how to process research data to reach significant conclusions.
