Basic Concepts of Biology


It is one of the basic subjects of Biotechnology. It involves various aspects of internal structure of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, various processes carried out by them and exploitation of such organisms for industrial purposes.

Course Outcome

After learning the course the students should be able:

  1. Develop a fundamental understanding between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
  2. Compare prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells based on structure and function of their cellular components.
  3. Present an overview of industrial fermentation process.
  4. Evaluate different biosignalling pathways and various cell processes

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, Pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus of Process Heat Transfer and fluid flow operation is covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should be sent to GTU.
