The Department of Biochemistry was started in the year 1988 wherein the B.Se. (Honours) integrated course was initiated. This unique undergraduate course covers papers in basic Biochemistry such as bimolecular, enzymologist, intermediary metabolism as well as advanced level papers in cell biology, immunology, molecular biology and genetics. The practical syllabus includes all major biochemistry and recombinant DNA techniques. Over 200 B .Se. (Honours) Biochemistry graduates have passed out of the department since the first batch of 1990. The Department has the unique distinction of having over 90% 1st classes as well as University Positions every year. Several of the graduates have been selected for integrated Ph.D. and M.Se. programmes in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and other Life Sciences at the IISc (Bangalore), NCBS (Bangalore), Biochemistry Department UDSC, JNU, Pune, Madurai, USA, Oxford & Cambridge. The Department is well equipped with modern infrastructure. From time to time the faculty continues to upgrade the department with new projects. Students are also encouraged to create and complete small projects to advance their awareness in science. The Department is also Funded by the star college Scheme of the Department of Biotechnology starting 2011 to create excellent laboratory facility for study
