Track 01: Agricultural & Animal Biotechnology:
Agricultural biotechnology is a cutting-edge science incorporating biotechnology and agricultural science. Genetic engineering, cell and tissue culture technologies of biotechnology are combined with the technologies of agricultural sciences.
This sector broadly covers: Development of improved breed of animals with higher milk production, Higher animal productivity and with other desirable characteristic, animal feed, embryo transfer, developing vaccines etc.
Track 02: Biomaterials and Bioinformatics
, a hybrid science that links biological data
with techniques for information storage, distribution, and analysis to support multiple areas of scientific research
, including biomedicine. Bioinformatics is fed by high-throughput data-generating
experiments, including genomic sequence determinations and measurements of gene expression patterns.
Track 03: Environment & Industrial Biotechnology
is a system of scientific and engineering knowledge related to the use of microorganisms and their products in the prevention of environmental pollution through biotreatment
of solid, liquid, and gaseous wastes, bioremediation
of polluted environments, and biomonitoring
of environment and treatment processes.
Track 04:Food and Enzyme Technology
is a science branch that deals with the techniques involved in production, processing, preservation, packaging, labeling, quality management, and distribution of food products
. The field also involves techniques and processes that are used to transform raw materials into food. Extensive research goes behind making food items edible as well as nutritious.
- Food microbiology
- Food plant safety and hazard analysis
- Food processing
- Management of food processing industries
- Food and vegetable processing
- Bakery and confectionary technology
- Crop processing technology
Track 05: Microbial & Cell Biotechnology
, enabled by genome studies, will lead to breakthroughs such as improved vaccines and better disease-diagnostic tools, improved microbial agents for biological
control of plant and animal pests, modifications of plant and animal pathogens for reduced virulence, development of new industrial catalysts and fermentation organisms, and development of new microbial agents for bioremediation
of soil and water contaminated by agricultural runoff.
Stem cell biotechnology
is a field of biotechnology that develops tools and therapeutics through modification and engineering of stem cells. Stem cell biotechnology is important in regenerative medicine.
- Plant Cell Biotechnology
- Animal Cell Biotechnology
- Molecular Biotechnology
- Cell and Tissue Culture
Track 06:Bioprocess & fermentation technology
or fermentation technology is an important component of most old and new biotechnology
processes and will normally involve complete living cells (microbe, mammalian or plant), organelles or enzymes as the biocatalyst
, and will aim to bring about specific chemical and/or physical changes in biochemical
materials derived from the medium. In order to be viable in any specific industrial context, bioprocessing must possess advantages over competing methods of production such as chemical technology. In practice, many bioprocessing
techniques will be used industrially because they are the only practical way in which a specific product can be made (e.g. vaccines, antibiotics).
Track 07: CRISPR & Genetic Engineering
, also called recombinant DNA technology, involves the group of techniques used to cut up and join together genetic material, especially DNA from different biological
species, and to introduce the resulting hybrid DNA into an organism in order to form new combinations of heritable genetic material. These achievements
led to concerns in the scientific community
about potential risks from genetic engineering.
- GENE THERAPY
- GENE TRANSFER
- GENETIC DISORDER
- RESTRICTION ENZYMES
Track 08: Pharmaceutical Biotechnology
is a relatively new and growing field in which the principles of biotechnology are applied to the development of drugs. A majority of therapeutic drugs in the current market are bioformulations
, such as antibodies, nucleic acid products and vaccines.
Track 09: Microbial Immunology& Diseases
Microbiology and Immunology
is a science which deals with microbial pathogens (viruses, mycoplasma
, bacteria, and eukaryotic microbes) and the immune surveillance machinery of the host which provide protection against these organisms. This field of science stresses on the challenges posed by pathogens to the host and how they shape the host immune
- Microbial genetics
- Molecular virology
- Pathogenic bacteriology
Track 10: Biomaterials & Bio Fuel
are natural or synthetic materials used in medical field to improve quality of life by either replacing tissue/organ or assisting their function
are combustible fuels created from biomass
; in other words, fuels created from recently living plant matter as opposed to ancient plant matter in hydrocarbons.
