ONE MONTH SUMMER TRAINING PROGRAM IN BIOTECHNOLOGY (STPB-2019)
The Department of Biotechnology proposes to organize a one-month self-financed summer training program in Biotechnology. The course is designed for undergraduate, postgraduate and research scholars of institutes, universities and colleges.
The course aims to provide up-gradation of knowledge and skills for UG/PG students/research scholars and other stakeholders involved in proposed areas of the training program. The course has been designed to cover both theoretical as well as the practical concepts in the respective fields. Lectures will be delivered by faculty members of their field and participants will also receive hands-on experience through various lab sessions.
The course is tentatively scheduled from 28th May to 27th June 2019. It is expected that around 40 participants will be attending the same.
Accommodation for outstation students may be arranged in the institute hostel depending on the availability. A nominal fee for hostel accommodation as per the Institute norms will be charged from the students.
Undergraduate and postgraduate students, research scholars of Biotechnology or allied fields from UGC/AICTE recognized university/ institute.
The complete course broadly covers four areas of biotechnology namely, Microbiology, Molecular, Agricultural biotechnology, Computational tools for Biotechnology, Nano-Technology and Immunology and Fermentation Technology, Environment and Enzyme Engineering. Participants will get the maximum exposure of recent tools used in the aforementioned areas of biotechnology.
This summer training program will highlight important aspects of the various areas of biotechnology with expert lectures and hands-on training sessions in the same. List of practical sessions (Not limited) to be conducted are as follows:
- Polyphasic taxonomical approach for systematic identification of microorganism.
- Different techniques for microscopic assessment of microorganisms
- Understanding the concepts and techniques of bacterial genetics
