In the era of Genomics, the application of biological knowledge and methods harvested from the biosciences will be of increasing economic relevance. Life scientists are gradually being dominated by enormous volumes of data. By 2025, approximately genome of I billion peoples will be sequenced. Similarly, Millions of protein metabolites and their interactions are determined every day. But to make sense of these huge volumes of complex data, interdisciplinary scientists are required to combine knowledge rom biology, computer science and statistics. The field is known as Biochemistry. Biochemistry involves development of methods and software tools for the understanding of large and complex biological data. Studying large biological data can lead to ground breaking discoveries by analyzing millions of DNA sequence fragments by using computers and software.

Department of Biochemistry is providing professional education and training at undergraduate and post-graduate levels, with modern biochemistry infrastructure, including resources, expertise, innovative research, and knowledge. The programs will train students in a healthy collaborative environment to develop computational methods for innovative interdisciplinary research in the field of life sciences. The Department is committed to train the next generation professionals to gain advanced knowledge in Biochemistry that is require to design and implement novel methods to solve problems with an emphasis on acquisition, representation, retrieval, visualization, and analysis of biological data. The curriculum involves individual courses that integrate mathematical modeling, wet labs, and computer sciences. Research areas in bioinformatics are numerous and include biological chemistry management (Databases), Gene mining, drug designing and targeting, protein/nucleic acid structure and function, and cell signaling and regulatory networks.

The curriculum at the Department of Biochemistry has been designed according to the guidelines of HEC. Teaching and training are being imparted through semester system and it comprises a combination of Foundation, Allied, Major and Optional (Elective) courses plus Research Projects and Internships. The graduates have job opportunities in educational institutes, food and pharmaceutical industries and research organizations.
