Integrated Biology

Department of Integrated Biology

 Integrated Biology is an advanced field of cross-disciplinary and multitaxon research and the crux of it relies on principles transforming the 21st century science. Collaborative and integrative biology focuses on new information and diverse expertise to problems, by becoming broader and more exploratory as a consequence. Highly research oriented, this stream facilitates new approaches to resolving complex questions.

Biological research is in the midst of a revolutionary change due to the integration of powerful technologies along with new concepts and methods derived from inclusion of physical sciences, mathematics, computational sciences, and engineering. The essence of the new kind of  Biology is integration–reintegration of the many sub--disciplines of biology, and the integration into biology of physicists, chemists, computer scientists, engineers, and mathematicians to create a research community with the capacity to tackle a broad range of scientific and societal problems.

The college offers a 5-year integrated M.Sc. Programme in basic sciences after 10+2 years of schooling (or equivalent). After successful completion of the academic requirements students are awarded a Master of Science degree in one of the four subjects: biology, chemistry, mathematics or physics. The programme has a balanced semester-based course structure with flexible and seamless curricula which emphasise interdisciplinary nature of and promote innovation and research.

The academic session for fresh students generally begins in June every year.
