Genetic Engineering, in simple words, is a laboratory technique used by scientists to change the DNA (Deoxy ribo Nucleic Acid) of living organisms.
This wonderful branch of engineering or science enables the human minds to interfere in and modify the processes of life, birth death and even offers escape from certain congenital diseases. There is great scope in this field as the demand for genetic engineers is growing both in India and abroad.
Genetic engineers/scientists re-arrange the sequence of DNA in gene using artificial methods. The work involves extracting the DNA out of one organism, changing it using chemicals or radiation and subsequently putting it back into the same or a different organism.
For e.g. genes and segments of DNA from one species is taken and put into another species. They also study how traits and characteristics are transmitted through the generations, and how genetic disorders are caused. Their research involves researching the causes and discovering potential cures if any.
The specializations in genetic engineering are related to plants, animals and human beings. The plant geneticengineering involves improving certain natural characteristics of value, viz. increase resistance to disease or damage and to develop new characteristics etc.
It is used to change the colour, size, texture etc of plants otherwise known as GM (Genetically Modified) foods. GE in humans can be to correct severe hereditary defects by introducing normal genes into cells in place of missing or defective ones.
Genetic engineering is a complicated and most sophisticated branch of science which is still in a process of development in our country.
An individual aspiring for a career in genetic engineering can start the BTech course after his/her Plus TwoScience with Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Biology. Admission to B.Tech in GeneticEngineering/Biotechnology/ Biochemical Engineering is made generally through entrance tests.
One can also pursue three-year B.Sc degree course in Genetics / Biological Science / Life Science / Biotechnology subjects and then go for post graduation (MSc) in genetics.
One who desires for further study and research can pursue M.Tech and PhD in genetic engineering offered by few institutes in India including the IITs.
In India, there are several sectors that give employment to genetic engineers and professionals. They can be absorbed in medical and pharmaceutical industries, agricultural sectors and the research and development departments of government, semi-government and private sectors. The pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries offer the best opportunities to genetic engineers and professionals with handsome salaries apart from other perks and benefits.
B.TECH IN GENETIC ENGINEERING IN Undergraduate
The B. Tech. program in Genetic Engineering comprises foundation courses in Biology and Engineering. Unique courses like Biology of Vectors, Recombinant DNA Technology, Gene Therapy, Genome Mapping, Stem Cell Biology and Microarray Technology are offered by experienced faculty.
Students' seminars and assignments are designed to be highly challenging, which paves way for the students to bring out their intellectual and interactive skills in analyzing scientific problems. The students are required to do research as part of their curriculum and submit a project report. Some of the research projects being carried out by the students are:
Sequencing of chloroplast genome
DNA barcoding of organisms
RNA interference in plants
Screening for LUX Genes among marine organisms
Molecular diagnosis of viral pathogens
Ultra-sensitive magnetic biosensor for cholesterol
Invitro Micropropagation of orchids
Production, purification and optimization of industrial enzymes
Study on plant metabolites for anti cancer activity
Direct bioethanol production from paddy straw
Purification of curcin from the seeds of Jatropha curcus
Drug delivery using polymers
