SCIENTIFIC LECTURE on PLANT GENOMIC RESEARCH
Biology students of K.R.Mangalam World School, Gurugram , visited NIPGR ( National Institute of Plant Genomic Research) which is an autonomous research institute funded by Department of Biotechnology, Government of India. A scientific lecture and a workshop for the students was organised by Dr.Niranjan Chakraborty, Professor of Eminence, NIPGR. It also enlightened the students about the career prospects in Plant Science and Plant Molecular Biology.
A small presentation was shown to students to explain how to utilize molecular biology approaches along with tissue culture and genetic engineering technology to identify important genes and manipulate these for generating transgenic plants with improved agronomic characters and pathogen / stress resistance.
The visit acquainted the students with various scientific infrastructure, scientific instruments used for plant molecular biology research work. It was a great exposure to the students.
