Bio-electrochemistry

ABOUT THE COURSE:

Bio-electro-chemistry is an interdisciplinary subject which falls at the cross-road of basic electrochemistry and its application in biochemistry, analytical chemistry, medicinal chemistry, bio-energy devices and biosensors. The subject has a broad horizon and myriad of applications; yet the governing principles are the basic laws of electrochemistry. Here we will be discussing the basic principles of electrochemistry and the myriad of applications of these principals in biology with special reference to bio-sensors, bio-fuel cells and diagnostics.

INTENDED AUDIENCE:
