Welcome to MEDU
Equipped with modern facilities for gene expression analysis, cell biology, protein chemistry, recombinant DNA technology, and animal experiments. Education is research-oriented.
The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics provides undergraduate and graduate courses in basic and applied areas of molecular biology and genetics. The undergraduate program offers a B.S. degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics and the graduate program leads to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Molecular Biology and Genetics. The department is equipped with modern facilities for gene expression analysis, cell biology, protein chemistry, recombinant DNA technology, and animal experiments. Education is research-oriented. The undergraduate program concentrates initially on basic knowledge in life sciences and related fields, followed by specialized training in molecular biology and genetics. Research laboratories of the department are used for graduate student training and for senior projects for undergraduate students. The main research activities of the department are on molecular genetics, molecular biology, molecular cell biology, basic and applied immunology, structure-function relationship of proteins, and new biotechnologies.
The undergraduate program aims to equip students with basic knowledge in life sciences with a special emphasis on molecular biology and genetics. The education program in the first two years concentrates on basic knowledge in biology and genetics in addition to physics, chemistry, and mathematics. The last two years are dedicated to specialized training in molecular biology, molecular cell biology, and molecular genetics, bioinformatics. Theoretical courses are completed with laboratory courses with hands-on experiments.
