Expertise & Faculty

 

Genomics, being an interdisciplinary area of biological sciences, has the obvious requirement of active involvement and support of various faculties of life science, applied sciences and engineering (computer). Many of the faculty members of Jiwaji University have expertise in the area of genomics and are able to take up new challenges. Several research programs are under way in the areas related, directly or indirectly, to genomics. Their integrated effort is the key to success of this Center and its programs.


Core Faculty & Collaborating Faculty

 

The master’s course on Molecular & Human Genetics is being run since session 2003-2004 with the help of existing faculty from various University Departments (Zoology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Computer Science, Pharmacy, etc.), local medical college (G R Medical College) & research institutes (Cancer Research Institute & DRDE). Experts from various national institutions including research institutes regularly visit the department and deliver specialized guest lectures on various aspects related to the course subject in order to update the knowledge of students on the developments in the field of medical genetics. Following are some of the faculty members from the University teaching Departments who are acting as adjunct faculty and supporting the teaching and training programme.
