Basic Concepts of Biology and Biochemistry


The prime objective of this subject is to clear fundamentals of central dogma i.e. replication, transcription and translation. This subject also covers the essentials of genetics and basics of genetic material.

Course Outcome

After successful completion of the course students should be able to:

  1. Develop a fundamental understanding of replication, transcription and tranlsation process.
  2. Evaluate different problems related to genetics
  3. Compare prokaryotic and eukaryotic gene structure

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
