Overview

M.Sc. Molecular & Human Genetics with Specialization in Clinical embryology in association with GarbhaGudi

GarbhaGudi is a chain of new generation infertility treatment hospitals equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure and cutting-edge technology to address this ever-increasing problem of infertility.

Molecular and Human Genetics is an investigative field wherein researchers search for, or introduce mutations or abnormalities within gene structures. It is a powerful methodology that effectively links genetic conditions to mutations, which aids in the creation of treatments or cures for several genetic diseases. With a course that inculcates in-depth theoretical knowledge and hands-on practical training, the GCU graduates of this programme can be of immense help in making further progress in the field of molecular biology. Pathogenic mechanisms, bioinformatics, analysis of the human genome, and chromosomal abnormalities are a few of the topics emphasized during this course.

Since the field of molecular and human genetics is constantly evolving, those who aspire to venture into this field need to stay on top of the trends and research done in the industry. This GCU programme incites the students to do the same in a stimulating environment, so that they have an all-round development by the time of graduation. The principles of genomic research help professionals in this field to recognize the underlying causes of diseases, and apply their knowledge to curate interventions that are specifically and accurately tailored to the patient.

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.

Why I Chose GCU

FAQ

Garden City University is a 28-year-old institution and INTERDISCIPLINARY in nature. The University has eight Schools under it offering courses from Diploma to Bachelor to Post graduation to PhD. The university has students from 81 different countries and every state and union territory in India. The University has the unique mix of Arts, Science and Management Education offered with Technology as the base. Be it Media studies, Life Sciences or Hotel Management, the emphasis is on practical education with the aid of technology tools to enhance learning and equip a student to work in the industry. Not to mention GCU has the credit of awarding graduation certification to 28 Colonels of the Indian Army attached to the Corps of Military Police.

The admission process is based on the courses offered at the UG and PG level.
The student goes online, fills the application with required details and files the same online for registering for the programme of choice. This will be accompanied by paying a registration fee as mentioned in the application form.
However, if the student needs any clarification, be it regarding the programme of choice or GCU as a University, entry criteria etc, the counsellors at the University are just a call away.
Once the registration process is completed, the admissions department shall communicate on further documents required and fee to be paid for the programme of choice.
Post the above process the student shall submit their original certificate to the registrar’s office for validation and verification. Once this process is completed the student gets enroled and an ID card is issued to the student. (Hostel formalities and transportation facilities are addressed in this page)
After enrolment the student shall voluntarily apply for GCU’s talent test which shall be the criteria for availing scholarship for the first year of study. Such talent test shall be conducted year on year to encourage studious students and also set the criteria for a UG student to be the most favoured student of choice for PG programmes. Apply Now

The University runs its own hostels for boys and girls separately. The hostels are in the vicinity of the campus with automated entry and further secure measures. More details on the hostel, fees and terms and conditions may be availed from the admissions office.
