SSR Degree College: Curriculum

Bachelors in Life Sciences

Biotechnology, Botany & Chemistry (Bt. B. C)

Whether it is Medicine or crop improvement Biotechnology is going to be the science of the future. Advanced biological sciences like Microbiology, Biotechnology forms the integral part of this application oriented discipline it enables us conserve the rich diversity of species on which our future depends. This amazing discipline has also spread its roots into the field of computer science in the form of Bioinformatics.

Biotechnology is a combination of Biology and Technology. It involves the use of living things, especially, cells and microbes in industrial process. It covers a wide variety of subjects like genetics, biochemistry, immunology, virology and engineering. The knowledge of plant makes us understand the marvels us. Applied sciences of Tissue culture, Microbiology, Biotechnology have their roots in Botany.
