Genetics Courses

Experts say that the Indian economy will actually be driven through biotechnology in a few years. Considering the fact that nearly 58 percent of the Indian economic GDP comes from agriculture and associated industries; agriculture is a key economic activity and biotechnology is all set to play an important role in combating issues such as soil imbalances and producing pathogen-free crops.  Likewise the healthcare industry is on the rise. Genetics is an indispensable part of both biotechnology and the healthcare sector and hence is emerging as a lucrative career option for Indian students.
