The research methods course introduces student to principal and modern concepts of research. This course helps the student to build an analytical and systematic link between theory and practice. Students will be able to develop skills in carrying out literature search using electronic databases, catalogues and print media using proper referencing methods, conduct preliminary literature review, familiarize in experimental methods as well as practice analyzing and interpreting data. Students are expected to recognise the significance of technological innovations, professional and ethical responsibilities in research. Students will be able to analyze and present research results in writing and in oral presentations as well as understanding scope and limits of qualitative and qualitative research methodologies.

PSCI607 MEDICINAL SIGNIFICANCE OF NATURAL PRODUCTS 3 3 0
The natural products obtained from plants, microorganisms, algae etc. and their biomedical uses will be studied in this course. A discussion of bioassay-directed screening, the isolation, structure determination, biosynthesis, partial synthesis and total chemical synthesis of organic natural products of medicinal significance. Examples of the classes of compounds to be considered include steroid hormones, cardiac glycosides, alkaloids, antibiotics, terpenes, and the like. Different plants used in pharmaceutical sciences and biomedical sciences as well as the potential of not yet studied plants will be evaluated. Extraction methods aimed at extracting the active ingredients and the methods used to test these ingredients on eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells will be discussed.
