A Bachelor's degree is a degree awarded by universities and colleges. In order to earn a bachelor's degree, you must complete the necessary courses that may last three to seven years depending on your institution of enrollment.
Genes contain information allowing organisms to adapt to sundry environmental factors. Genetics programs attempt to impart an understanding of these processes through a focused examination of subjects such as genomes, biochemical studies and molecular biology.
The Middle East boasts a uniquely diverse population filled with a myriad of political, cultural and religious identities. In this setting, students have the opportunity to learn first hand about historic cultures and empires based in the region.

Dynamics of the receptors to which drug molecules bind to is another field of study in our department. Understanding the functioning mechanism of the receptor is the very first step towards developing a way to interfere with its working mechanism. [+]
In today’s world molecular biology, biochemistry and other biological fields are becoming increasingly information driven. Mainly the need of processing massive quantities of sequence information generated by recent developments in genome sequencing and proteome analysis has propelled these life sciences into a new era in which computer science, information technologies, and biology merged into a single discipline as bioinformatics. Accordingly, genetics in conjunction with bioinformatics have been changing the old view in clinical diagnostics. By comprehensive genetic testing, individuals who are more susceptible to disease can be identified before any disease even exists. This way early predictive measures can be taken. Moreover personalized drug design, to tailor a specialized treatment based on your genetic makeup, seems to be a standard way of disease treatment in the near future.... [-]
The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics prepares students to become researchers in this area of biology.[+]
The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics prepares students to become researchers in this area of biology. The Department houses state-of-the-art laboratories that allow the study of high-throughput genomics, bioinformatics, recombinant DNA, model organisms, and cell cultures for educational and research purposes. The main focus of research activities is on the molecular genetics and biology of human diseases such as cancer, autoimmunity, and rare inherited neurodevelopmental phenotypes. Students have the opportunity to study with internationally recognized faculty members working at the forefront of research in genetics and cell science.
