  • Conference on Trends in Cell and Molecular Biology (TCMB 2015)

    Conference on Trends in Cell and Molecular Biology (TCMB 2015)

    1st International conference on Trends in Cell and Molecular Biology (TCMB 2015) will be held at BITS Pilani, K K Birla Goa Campus, from 19-21st December 2015. Emphasis of the conference is on, but not limited to, the understanding of cellular toxicity, cellular response to nanomaterials, molecular approach to cancer and computational and systems biology.

     

    The purpose of this conference is to provide a common platform for all researchers, students, working on different aspects of ‘cell and molecular biology’ to discuss their research findings. The conference will consist of plenary sessions, invited lectures, oral and poster presentations.

  • BITS Goa Alumnus’ paper reveals a new technique to bring proteins into focus

    BITS Goa Alumnus’ paper reveals a new technique to bring proteins into focus

    BITS Pilani K K Birla Goa Campus alumnus and present MIT graduate student - Ashok Ajoy, along with others at MIT, the Singapore University of Technology and Design, and Harvard University developed a new technique that shows great promise for producing highly detailed images of individual proteins, no matter how complicated their structure, without the need for crystallization.

    The findings are described in the journal Physical Review X. The technique makes use of microscopic defects within the crystal structure of diamond to place a biological molecule on top of it and try to determine its structure. With proteins, the structure and function are closely related, so being able to map out that structure precisely could help in understanding both how some basic biological processes work, and how new drugs might be developed to interact with specific molecular targets.

     

    The work so far is theoretical; the next step, which the team has already begun, is to produce actual images based on this technique. “We started building this setup a year ago, and we have preliminary experiments,” Ajoy says. Actual images of molecules are probably still a few years away, he says.

    The work was supported by the U.S. Army Research Office and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
