Summary:

All the B.Sc. and M.Sc. students (all semesters) of the Department of Biological Sciences (Biochemistry and Microbiology) visited Acharya Narendra Dev college (University of Delhi) for getting exposure of basic and applied techniques of biology on 22 November, 2019.

During this visit, students visited four laboratories-

  1. Anti-mycobacterial Drug Discovery Laboratory
  2. Laboratory Microbial Technology Laboratory
  3. Insect-Vector and Pest Laboratory
  4. Ciliate Biology Laboratory

 
They got observation of the cultures of bacteriophages, ciliates, bacteria and other microbes. After visiting to above mentioned laboratories, all students got Hands on practice of basic and advance Molecular techniques (DNA isolation, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), Gel Electrophoresis). The visit was fruitful and was successfully able to enhance student’s life long learning on molecular techniques in interdisciplinary environment. This visit has motivated our students towards research and helped them to gain curiosity towards science.
