    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.




    National workshop on Climate Crisis and Agriculture: Preparedness, Adaptation and Mitigation Strategies, September 17-18 2011 sponsored by Oxfam, UDI, PAIRVI, New Delhi.





    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.
