Keeping abreast with the latest technologies and moving ahead with the vision to foster Budding Biotechnologists in our young minds, Department of Biotechnology is Organizing a 4 week Summer School "Bioescalator: Insights into Biotechnology, Plant Science and Bioinformatics" from 11th May 2020 to 5th June 2020. Department of Biotechnology at IILM ,Greater Noida is an NBA accredited Department and has been a Centre of Excellence from more than a 15 years of its establishment.
Our Summer School will cove various domains of Biotechnology and will provide crucial insights into Basics of Industrial Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Plant Technology, IPR & recent techniques which have transformed Biotechnology sector at a 360 degree angle. Industrial Biotechnology will acquaint the students with media designing, sterilization, types of culture conditions and case studies focussing on production of industrially significant products. Plant Tissue culture is an important tool for both basic and applied aspects of plant biotechnology as well as its commercial applications. Module on Plant Technology has a vocational focus and introduces the student to the theory and practice of plant tissue culture and their role from modifying plants in plant biotechnology to the propagation of endangered plants; from modifying cell lines in biotechnology to the propagation of all lines for use in medical, microbiological, Biochemical research & Environmental biotechnology.Bioinformatics involves the integration of computers, software tools, and databases in an effort to address biological questions. Our Module on Bioinformatics will provide an introduction to the analysis of biological data using computational methods, as well as investigating problems in molecular and biology from a computational perspective and will include the study of biological tools related to following fields: Databases and data retrieval systems, Identification of genes and their functions. Automated genome sequencing, Structure prediction and modeling, Sequence and structure alignment, Phylogenetics and Drug discovery and designing. All the inventions in Biotechnology are futile without filing patents to grant protection to the inventor. With the same vision, We have included a Module on IPR for Biotechnology inventions. IPR course will look at the importance of patents in the world of biotechnology and what can be actually patented. At the end, Our Summer School will cover recent developments in Biotechnology techniques. Various Experts from National and Internally renowned research labs, Academic Institutions and Industries and like Dr.Reddy's laboratories, Nestle India Ltd, AIIMS, Delhi University, Michigan Technological University, USA and firm, Bristol Myers Squibb, Seattle, USA have been associated with this Summer School to provide information on sophistications in Biotechnology arena. All the modules will be taken by Highly Vibrant faculty members of Biotechnology Department and External Industrial Experts.
