Department of Biochemistry was started in 1974 by Prof. B. B.
Biswas. Since its inception, the Department has produced a number
of bright scientists, now pursuing their careers in India and
abroad. The faculty members have trad itionally been engaged
in research on contemporary areas in Biochemistry, Molecular
Biology, Structural Biology and Genetics. Our past and present
faculty members have been recipients of several awards and fellowships,
as recognition of their research contributions. At present,
the different topics of research are: studies on tubulin substructure
and its interaction with drugs, protein folding and structure
analyses, crystal structure of proteins, developmental regulation
in Mycobacteriophage L1, control of transcription in
E. coli, molecular genetics of the parasite Entamoeba
histolytica and chromosome transmission in the budding yeast.
