Departmental Happenings

YEAR-2020: 
 
  • Dr. Dr Sunit Mandad, Research Associate at Department of Neuro and Sensory Physiology University Medical Centre Goettingen GERMANY, delivered a talk on "Quantitative Mass Spectrometry: a tool to investigate neuronal proteome abundance and protein turnover" organised by Department of  Biological Sciences on  08 February,2020.
  • Dr. Manu Smriti Singh, Postdoctoral Fellow at Laboratory of Nano-medicine, Department of Cell Research and Immunology, Tel-Aviv University, Israel delivered a talk on “Three-dimensional tumor model as a robust platform to mimic vascularized tumors in clinic” organised by Department of  Biological Sciences on  31 January,2020.
 
     
  • Dr. Gagandeep Singh Saggu, Postdoctoral Research Scientist, National Institute of Allergic and Infectious Diseases, National Institute of Health, Rockville, MD delivered invited talk on “A large conductance ion channel on the malaria parasite digestive vacuole”, organised by Department of  Biological Sciences on  28 January,2020.  
  •  
  • Mini-colloquium on Emerging and Interdisciplinary Areas of Biologial Science Research, organised by Department of  Biological Sciences on 17 January,2020.

YEAR-2019:
     
  • Akshina Jindal received Khorana Scholar 2019, Summer at Yale University: Akshina Jindal a B1 student, interned under Prof. Mark Gerstein at the Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry, Yale University in the field of Computational Biology. She worked on classification of hyper mutated tumor samples into hypoxic and non-hypoxic tumor samples using integration of CNN’s, image processing and genomics. Hypoxic subregions in tumors lead to increased genetic instability and higher rate of mutations. She built a pipeline using InceptionV3 and Resnet50 (transfer learning techniques) pre-trained models and compared the results with unsupervised clustering models. She also worked on finding plausible mutated regions in the hypoxic breast cancer tumor samples.

    YEAR-2018
  •  DHULIKA RAVINUTHALA, a M.E. Biotechnology student, received the "Bajpai saha" award (cash award Rs.2000/-)  for the best student paper presentation International conference on BioMaterials, BioEngineering and BioTheranostics given by the "Society for Biomaterials and Artificial organs (India) in VIT university,Vellore.
            
  • Dr. Jola Dubey trained  70 farmers from 45 villages of Jhunjhunu district at Ramkrishna  Jaidayal  Dalmia  Seva  Sansthan, Dalmia Trust, Chirawa,  on  production and use of  biopesticides in horticulture. The program was conducted for imparting training to the farmers for using latest technologies involved in horticulture. Many scientists from ICAR's Krishi Vigyaan Kendras and state agricultural departments and social reformers delivered their talks on technologies in agriculture, latest government programmes in agriculture sector for the benefits of farmers and best possible ways for the maximum utilization of water in horticulture under the view of water conservation in today's scenario. Dr. Jola Dubey is presently working as DST Woman Scientist under the mentorship of  Prof.S. K. Verma, Department of Biological Sciences, BITS, Pilani. The collaborating organization for the project is BITSAA, Pilani Resource Centre. 
 
   
 
         
YEAR-2017:-
  • Dr. JolaDubey interacted with farmers of Churu district at Krishi Vigyan Kendra (Indian Council of Agricultural Research), Chandgothi, Rajasthan followed by Prime Minister's live session with farmers on developments and advancements in the agriculture sector on 20thJune 2018. Dr. Dubey provided in depth insights to farmers on importance of biopesticides and organic farming. She provided training on production and use of biopesticides. Farmers were keen to learn the techniques involved in organic farming as the heavy use of chemical pesticides is causing serious damage to soil, groundwater, ecosystem and human health.Their interest and response was overwhelming. After few interactive sessions local production units of biopesticides will be set up at village levels under this project.
 
  • Dr. Jola Dubey is presently working as DST Woman Scientist under the mentorship of Prof.S. K. Verma, Department of Biological   Sciences, BITS, Pilani. The collaborating organization for the project is BITSAA, Pilani Resource Centre.
  
  • Department of Biological Sciences organized a TWO day hands on workshop on Flow Cytometry from 18th -19th Jan 2017. Lectures on basic principle of Flow Cytometry preceded hands on experimental demonstration of some selected FACS based experiments during the two day workshop.
      A Certificate was distributed by Dept of BioSciences on successful completion of the workshop.
 
         
            
YEAR-2016:-
  • The department of Biological Sciences, Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani,Rajasthan, India is pleased to announce an International Conference (BITS CONFERENCE ON GENE AND GENOME REGULATION, (BCGGR-2016)) which is to be held from February 18th -20th 2016. This symposium will serve as a platform to catalyze new interactions and exchange ideas in the diverse and fast-moving field of genetics and gene regulation, genomics and epigenomics, high throughput technologies and other diverse array of topics popular in genomics era. Over 20 keynote lectures will be delivered by leading scientists from India and abroad.
