Conference Name: Prioritizing Research areas on Nano-Bio-Information Technology for development of North-Western Himalayan States
Conference Date: Friday, July 12, 2013 - 10:30 to Saturday, July 13, 2013 - 17:00
Conference Venue: Ratan Singh Auditorium, G.B.P.U.A.&T., Pantnagar
Body: Nano-bio-information technology, which integrates three important technologies viz, nanotechnology, biotechnology and information technology has potential to accelerate agriculture and economical growth of hill-states.
1. Swot analysis of current status of Bio resources and its potential in agro-climate conditions in north western Himalayan states.
2. Multi-disciplinary approaches in biotech research for Agri-food, nutrition and health security.
3. Nanotechnology for enhancing the precision and efficiency of biological system.
4. Bioinformatics for documentation of Himalayan bio-resources and discovery of novel molecules
Conducted “Researchers’ Training V: Data Analysis Using SAS” to improve the knowledge of data analysis of the scientist/ faculty members of the university 22-28 July 2011.
Dr Anjana Srivastava Convener, Organized National symposium on Pesticides, Food Safety & Environment on November 8, 2011.
National Training workshop on “Intervention of Bioinformatics in Biodiversity Indexing Technologies, Oct 10-14, 2011 for the scientists, mid career teachers and Students.
There exists a huge plant biodiversity in
our country and specifically in the state of
Uttarakhand which has vast reservoirs of many
useful genes and biologically active molecules that
are largely unknown and have many beneficial
properties which can be exploited for biomedical
and agricultural applications. Unfortunately,
growing human intervention into the floral habitats
has led to fast erosion of these prized natural
resources. Hence, to tap the full potential, there is
immediate need to index these bio-resources using
modern techniques such as development of core
and mini core, their phenomics and genomics, DNA
fingerprinting such as using modern DNA barcoding
tools, which would subsequently be of immense
help in identifying important proteins /compounds
and mining important genes. Therefore, to
scintillate and equip young and active researchers
in the field of biodiversity indexing, the
Bioinformatics Sub-DIC, Pantnagar conducted a 5
day workshop on the topic “Intervention of
Bioinformatics in Biodiversity Indexing
Technologies” on Oct 10th-14th, 2011. Expectedly,
the theme of the workshop attracted more than 80 participants from various universities/institutions of
our country. To provide a comprehensive
understanding about the subject, on-hand
practicals and lectures were organized by invited
eminent scientists like Dr. L.M.S. Palni from
GBPIHED, Almora, Dr. Anil Kumar from GBPUAT,
Pantnagar, Dr. Dr. T. Napolean from IARI, Dr. Badri
Narayan from NISER, Bhubneswar, Dr. Sunder
from IIT Delhi, Dr. Sameer Savant from NBRI of our
country who have in-depth knowledge of theoretical
concepts of bioinformatics and computational
biology as well as wide knowledge of various
bioinformatics tools that have applications in
biodiversity indexing. The participants gave an
overwhelming response to the contents of
workshop and were very interested in utilizing the
knowledge gained to explore the biodiversity
potential of our country as well as integrating it in
their ongoing research work.
Summer Training on “Appreciation of Molecular Biology, Immunology and Plant Tissue Culture Techniques” 45 days training for UG & PG students of Biotechnology from different Institution.
GB Pant University of Agriculture and Technology is one of the prestigious universities in the field of agriculture and technology. Biotechnology courses offered by the University are upheld not only at the national level but also at the international level. Department of Molecular Biology and Genetic Engineering, College of Basic Science and Humanities is a nodal department and successfully running Master’s and Doctoral programmes in Molecular Biology & Biotechnology since last two decades. Keeping pace with the present scenario of the biotech industry, the University is offering summar/winter trainings in Molecular Biology & Biotechnology to the students of neighboring institutions located in Uttarakhand and also from institutions of different states of our country in order to enable the students to explore greater career prospects and employment opportunities. Department of Molecular Biology & Genetic Engineering is running a four to six weeks on hand training programme for the under graduate and postgraduate students. Training programmewas designed in such a way that covers basic as well as recent emerging techniques in the field of biotechnology. Last year we received approximately 250 applications from all over the Country. Among them, twenty five candidates were selected on the basis of their academic record. We also select at least one student from each institute to maintain the heterogeneity in the group. The feed back of the students regarding training module, lectures and on hand practical examination was rewarding.

State level Watershed Management and Rainwater Harvesting Workshop during 24th -25th February, 2011 at Hotel Radisson, Metropolis City, Rudrapur.
Uttarakhand State is well endowed with Forest and Water resources, but due to unscientific agronomic practices, hydrologic imbalances, natural calamities and increasing population; the Himalayan Watersheds are under constant threat. In view of above, the Council in collaboration with Central Ground water Board (CGWB), Dehradun and G.B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar is organizing state level watershed management workshop. The aim of the workshop is to develop human resource in this area for generating greater participation at community level.
