Molecular biology examines the molecular basis of life. As such, it deals with the structure, function and interplay of various molecules, entailing a multidisciplinary approach. The interuniversity master’s programme in Molecular Biology places a high emphasis on the theoretical and practical skill set of young scientists.This programme especially hopes to allure young scientists from developing countries who are already involved in either human or animal health care or agricultural research.
