My life at Amrita has been an exceptionally fine educational experience. I believe that having studied at Amrita School of Biotechnology has been a logical extension of my academic pursuit and has opened doors for me to higher circles. We have an excellent group of mentors who are truly inspirational and extremely supportive. The curriculum, and moreover the faculty-student discussions provide a very stimulating environment for learning, and this in turn has helped the students in developing a keen scientific temperament. I am extremely glad for being a part of this wonderful Amrita family.

Sathyaa S
M.Sc. Bioinformatics (2008-2010), Post Doctoral Fellow, University of Pavia, Italy

Amrita School of Biotechnology is one of the best experiences I have ever had. The knowledge that I gained at ASBT was the “start up” for my research career. Bioinformatics program at ASBT provides a good framework that helps to improve the theoretical biology and to develop the programming skill set. Highly qualified faculty members helps to create a good research ambiguity for students. I thoroughly enjoyed the ABST Bioinformatics experience and will cherish not only the knowledge I gained but also the friendship that I made.

Nitya Nandkishore

My experience at Amrita School of Biotechnology (ASBT) was very memorable. The subjects offered are unique and advanced, the classes are interactive and innovative teaching methods are employed facilitating a better training. The faculty members are not only highly qualified experts in their field, but are also extremely approachable. Personally, the time I spent at ASBT and my interactions with the faculty helped me discover my enthusiasm for science and gave direction to my career.
