Department of Studies in Biochemistry, KSOU, Mysore was established during the year 2012. The Department proposes to conduct M.Sc., biochemistry programme in ODL mode as per the motto - Education to everyone everywhere on a mission to provide quality higher education with emphasis on educating the public by offering respected, relevant, accessible, affordable and student-focused programmes under UGC guidelines. The proposed M.Sc., in Biochemistry course is highly relevant to the mission and goals of KSOU, as distance learning is rapidly becoming an alternative to traditional classrooms. This will afford students the degree they are looking for with a synchronous delivery, in which a student is provided with self-learning materials along with personal contact classes for practical‘s and counselling sessions. We engage and embrace a community of graduate students and post-graduates from various natural and chemical science streams. This department provides an amazing opportunity to explore the biological sciences. As the study of life itself, biology is a subject that draws the interest of almost everyone. Our understanding of the chemical foundations of life is constantly growing, becoming more sophisticated every year. As a broad-based biochemistry department, we form a community dedicated to understanding the natural world down to molecular interactions. The Department of Biochemistry is one of the dynamic and interactive departments under the School of Sciences
