Molecular Biology & Genetics


Molecular biology & Genetics is a rapidly developing field of biological sciences that involves the study of organisms on a cellular and molecular level. It has many important applications such as biomedical sciences, molecular medicine, disease prevention and treatment, generation of new protein products, and manipulation of plants and animals for desired phenotypic traits. The study of living things at molecular and genetic levels have undergone tremendous development and expansion in the last  two-  three decades, and as a result undergraduate education in topics such as molecular cell biology, molecular genetics and genomics are becoming of higher interest.

Genetics and Molecular Biology program at LUMHS offers a Bachelor of Science degree upon completion of a 4-year curriculum taught in English. Students will be mainly educated in molecular biology and various fields of genetics that are designed to train students for post graduates studies in the related fields. In addition, optional courses include other fields of biology such as immunology, Physiology, Microbiology, Pharmacology, Epidemiology and Bioinformatics.


To develop Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics as national and international recognized highest seat of learning for cutting edge research of Molecular Genetics.
