M.SC MOLECULAR & HUMAN GENETICS

Overview

M.Sc Molecular & Human Genetics

PROGRAMME ACCREDITATION

This Programme is approved by University Grants Commission.

The Molecular and human genetics a discipline concerned with genetically determined resemblances and differences among human beings. Technological advances in the visualization of human chromosomes have shown that abnormalities of chromosome number or structure are surprisingly common and of many different kinds, and that they account for birth defects or mental impairment in many individuals as well as for numerous early spontaneous abortions. Progress in molecular biology has clarified the molecular structure of chromosomes and their constituent genes and the ways in which change in the molecular structure of a gene can lead to a disease. Concern about possible genetic damage through environmental agents and the possible harmful effects of hazardous substances in the environment on prenatal development has also stimulated research in human genetics. The medical aspects of human genetics have become prominent as nonhereditary causes of certain diseases and early death, such as infectious disease or nutritional deficiency, have declined, at least in developed countries.

In the masters of Molecular and human genetics we focuses on the chemical structure and the functions, replication, and mutations of the molecules involved in the transmission of genetic information, namely DNA and RNA and the arrangement of genes on DNA, the replication of DNA, the transcription of DNA into RNA, and the translation of RNA into proteins. When this central dogma is deregulated, the adverse effects are implemented on human health. This programme fits into the growing worldwide convergence between the different basic sciences, and advance scientific integration with implication on human health.

Semester IV

  • Major Project
  • Clinical Assignment

Clinical Assignment

Each student will visit a hospital (preferably a Medical College hospital). The hospital will assign different departments for each day (3 visits per week). Students will collect samples from the patients of some of the inherited diseases and from the patients of some of the diseases due to acquired genetic alterations (e.g., Leukemias, Lymphomas etc.) presented during these visits and undertake analysis. The analysis will include chromosomal analysis and/or mutation detection by PCR/RFLP. Each student will maintain a detailed record of the visits and the patients analyzed (including pedigrees and clinical information) and submit a Report on the same.
