Molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics are rapidly developing fields of study. Sri Lankan universities offer high-quality courses in molecular biology.
Graduates of molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics degrees are in high demand in a variety of industries. Their skills are essential for developing new medical treatments, improving crop yields, and creating sustainable energy sources.
Degree Programs in Molecular Biology
Two state universities offer courses in this field:
University of Colombo – BSc Honours in Molecular Biology & Biotechnology, BSc Honours in Immunology & Integrative Molecular Biology and BSc Honors in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology
University of Sri Jayewardneprura – BSc Honours in Genetics and Molecular Biology

Other Molecular Biology degrees as a part of Biological Science Degree programs
In addition to the courses listed above, there are many other Sri Lankan universities that offer courses in molecular biology, either as part of a biology degree or as a standalone specialization. For example, the University of Sri Jayewardenpura offers a BSc Honours in Plant Biotechnology degree, and the University of Peradeniya offers a BSc Honours in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology degree.
I encourage you to research the different molecular biology courses offered by Sri Lankan universities to find one that is right for you.
