BIO-SCIENTISTS MEET IN LUCKNOW 

About 350 participants including scientists/teachers from different universities /institutes and scholars/students gathered in shruti auditorium of SGPGI, Lucknow in two days “National Conference on Biolife: The Amalgamation of Multidisciplinary Life Sciences” organized by Bio-EGICORE, Lucknow. The conference was divided into four sessions with a keynote address, two invited lectures and 4-8 oral presentations in each session. Besides, 35 papers were presented in poster sessions.

The major deliberations included papers on biodegradable/ biocompatible nanopolymers including silk proteins as biomaterial in the service of medical science delivered by Dr. Prashant Pal from Mangalayatan University, Aligarh and Dr. S. K. Gangwar from Central Silk Board, Ranchi; human parasites and precautions against their attack; role of PTEN gene in colorectal cancer; various bioinformatics tools and their applications in systematic search of scientific development. The eminent scientists participated in the conference included Dr. Santosh Kr. Gangwar (Sr. Scientist, Central Tasar Research & Training Institute, Ranchi, Jharkhand), Dr. J.K. Srivastava (Professor, AIB, Amity University,Lucknow), Dr. Prachi Srivastava (Asst. Professor, AIB, Amity University, Lucknow), Prof. Vinod Singh (Professor & Head, Dept. of Microbiology, Barakattullah University, Bhopal, MP), Dr. Ratna Chandra (Asst. Professor, SMVDU, J&K), Dr. Lavkush Dwivedi (Asst. Professor, Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Bundelkhand University, Jhansi), Dr. Vineeta Mittal (HOD and Associate Prof., Dr. R.M. Lohia Inst. of Medical Sciences, Lucknow, UP), Dr. Sharada Potukuchhi (Asst. Professor, SMVDU, J&K), Prof. Ashish Verma (Professor, Amity Institute of Biotechnology, Amity University, Noida, UP), Dr. Prashant Kumar Pal (Sr. Lect., Inst. of Bio-Medical Education & Research, Mangalayatan University), Dr Moshahid Alam Rizvi (Professor, Department of Biosciences, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi), Dr. Ajay Singh (Sr. Lecturer, AIB, Amity University, Lucknow)

Earlier during inauguration Chief guest of the conference, Dr. K.R. Dhiman, Vice chancellor Y.S Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Solan emphasised on the need for conservation of biodiversity especially the medicinal plants for welfare of human beings. He informed that many species of medicinal plants are either extinct or at the verge of extension. Supporting his views, Dr. Sharda Potukuchi presented the statistical data on available and use of herbal plants in India comparing the other major countries like China, Japan, USA. Dr. Huma Mustafa, Joint Director, CST-U.P, Lucknow graced the occasion as guest of honour and in her inaugural message focused on need for amalgamation of various disciplines of life science particularly because most of the biological sciences are directly related to human life. Dr. S.K. Gangwar, Patron advocated the need for more and more institute-industry interaction so as to help the developed technology get a stage of commercial production. 

Ms. Pallavi Gangwar, Director EGICORE narrated the various responsibilities of EGICORE and opportunities for budding biological scientists/ scholars/students to get benefits from them. Mr. Ankur Mohan, Managing Director, EGICORE proposed vote of thanks.

WORKSHOP ON MICROARRAY DATA ANALYSIS

“Two Days Workshop on Microarray Data Analysis” (WNDA-2013) was held on December - 15th-16th, 2012, organized by, Bio-EGICORE, Lucknow. This workshop was organized for the participants from Life Science Background. Microarray technology has become one of the indispensable tools that many biologist use to monitor genome wide expression levels of gene in a given organism. The work provides a perspective to study gene expression evolution in terms of functional enrichment and promoter conservation. Invited lecture was delivered by Mr.Ashish Gupta (Research Scholar, Biological sciences, baton Ronge, Louisiana, USA), Mr. Utkarsh Raj Saxena (Research Scholar, DBT Project, GBU, Noida). Total no. of seats was 15.
