UGC CSIR NET/SET Tutor Life Sciences has been revised as per the new syllabi and examination pattern issued by the UGC & CSIR for Life Sciences.
The book has been divided into 39 Chapters according to the syllabus of Life Sciences.The chapters namely Basic Physical & Chemical Concepts in Biology, Bioenergentics & Catalysis, Organization & Metabolism of Biomolecules, The Cell: Structure & function, Structure of Chromosone & Cell Cycle, DNA Replication, Repair & Recombination, RNA Synthesis & Processing, Protein Synthesis & Processing, Control of Gene Expression, Host Parasite Interactions, Cell Signaling & Cellular Communication, Cancer, Immune System, Concepts & Early Development in Plants & Animals, Morphogenesis & Organogenesis in Plants & Animals, Physiological Metabolism in Plants, Growth Hormore & Photobiology, Solute Transport & Stress Physiology, Digestion & Respiratory System, Blood Vascular System, Excretory System & Thermoregulation, Neuroendocrine System & Reproduction, Mendelism & its Extensions, Gene Mapping, Extrachromosonal Inheritance & Microbial Genetics, Human & Quantative Genetics, Genetic Variation, Classification of Livings, Indian Sub-Continent & its Organisms, The Environment & Population, Community Dynamics, Ecosystem Physiology, Pollution & Biodiversity Conservation, Origin of Life & Evolutionary Thoughts, Evolution: Methods of Studying & Mechanisms, Behaviour & Evolution, Applied Biology, Molecular Biology & Recombinant DNA Methods, Histochemical & Immunotechniques, Biophysical Methods, Statistical Methods, Radiolabelling Techniques, Microscopic Techniques, Electrophysiological Methods, Methods in Field Biology and Computational Methods.
Ample number of previous years’ objective questions upto December 2015 have been covered chapterwise.Some specific facts have been covered in a box and through pictures for better understanding. The book also contains last five years’ (2011-2015) Solved Papers of UGC CSIR NET/SET Life Sciences to help candidates understand the recent exam pattern. Also various types of objective questions based on the latest examination pattern to help the candidates get familiar with the new examination pattern have been provided in the book. The book also contains sample questions provided on CSIR Website for Life Sciences. This book is equally useful for various State Eligibility Tests as well.
