As a noble initiative founded by the Government of India to achieve accessibly, quality, and equitable education, SWAYAM comes out as a commendable online training venture which prioritises excellence in education. The initiative aims at the free and unhindered transmission of teaching-learning resources to everyone beyond their financial and miscellaneous obstacles. With SWAYAM, learners can bridge the digital divide caused due to them belonging to areas untouched by the digital tsunami by being a part of the knowledge economy like regular learners.
Biochemistry of Biomolecules Certification Programme focuses on one of the most significant parts of the interdisciplinary subject of Microbiology-Biochemistry. This topic deals with the interesting interplay of Chemistry and Biology to comprehend some of the highly fascinating and educationally relevant systems of the human body with deliverables from an expert in the domain.
The 36-moduled course includes discussion over Bioenergetics, Lipids, Biochemistry of Carbohydrates, Proteins, Vitamins, Enzymes, and Practicals and involves candidates through the discussion forum.
The course works on the idea that to understand microorganisms and their behaviour, Biochemistry is an important background subject. Throughout the span of four months, candidates will work on tests and quizzes which would test their learnings and help them revise the same.

How it helps
Biochemistry of Biomolecules Certification Programme has been created with the aim of capacity building and strengthening the ability of learners to apply the learning outcomes to real-life situations. At the completion of the course, students can be expected to implement knowledge of Biochemistry in the career they wish to partake in or simply to go beyond the learnings of their textbooks.
With the freely accessible programme, students who are deprived can also gain knowledge and shape their career in the field of Biochemistry as a professor, scientist, or by pursuing a job in pharmaceutical companies. The curriculum has been so designed so as to assist candidates with their research plans or to help them prepare for competitive examinations. Since it can be accessed by anyone, anywhere and at any time, even working professionals can pursue the course along with their job commitments.
Online certification issued by the HRD Ministry itself will add on to the portfolio of candidates and provide them supreme benefits professionally. Apart from providing proof to their skill set, the proctored test that they will give to receive the certification will hone their skills to crack any interview appreciably.
Dr. Sudeshna Shyam Choudhury, the Head of the Department of Microbiology, St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata will be delivering Biochemistry of Biomolecules Certification Programme.
The current SWAYAM platform has been developed by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and NPTEL, IIT Madras in collaboration with Google Inc. and Persistent Systems Ltd.
Candidates will have to check the course link themselves regularly to know when the registration link gets activated.
Once candidates enrol into the Biochemistry of Biomolecules Certification Programme, they will be notified of the fee via an email sent on their registered mail ID.
Candidates have to ensure that their homework, quizzes, assignments, and exams will be their original work (except in case of assignments that explicitly permit collaboration).
Once the candidate is done with his transaction, he shall see a SWAYAM confirmation page displaying the order number, name, and payment amount. These details would be important in case the candidate wishes to seek a refund from SWAYAM.
