National Level Workshop on Marine Microbial Technology 2010

August 5, 20100 comments


AMET University (Under Section 3 of UGC Act 1956) is a pioneer in Maritime Education in India. The Department of Biotechnology is seriously indulging itself in innovative and prosperous research in the field of Marine Biotechnology which is a undiscovered area in research studies. There is a huge prosperity which is hidden deep under the ocean, so we are on a progress towards unveiling this treasure. As a part of our research extension programs, we are conducting series of workshops for introducing Marine Biotechnology, which is a prosperous field in science. 

In line with this success, we are now organizing a NATIONAL LEVEL WORKSHOP ON MARINE MICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY during 23-27, August 2010. The workshop mainly aims to train students and research scholars from non-Microbiology disciplines such as Botany, Zoology, Chemistry, Biochemistry and Bioinformatics who are interested to do Microbiology works. The workshop would be a real HANDS ON experience with individualized care. TECHNICAL DETAILS OF THE WORKSHOP

The workshop will give hands on training in the following technical aspects.

  • Isolation of Marine Organisms (Bacteria-Luminescent Bacteria, fluorescent bacteria, Fungi and Marine Actinomycetes) from environmental samples
  • Identification of microorganisms (Bacteria, Fungi and Actinomycetes): Basic numerical taxonomy
  • Maintenance and Safe Handling of Microorganisms
  • Short term and Long term preservation of Microorganisms
  • Characterization of Microorganisms for various Bioactivities such as Antibiosis, plant growth promotion, production of enzymes, pigments and Enzyme assays
  • Molecular Biology: Isolation and quantification of macromolecules: DNA, Proteins-Intracellular, membrane bound and extra cellular. Electrophoresis.

Note: All the organisms used in the workshop would be Marine Microorganisms. But the techniques are applicable to all kinds of Microorganisms.
