New Delhi: TERI University Biotechnology Society is organizing an event on 28th-29th September 2017. The theme of the event is “TRENDS IN NANOBIOTECHNOLOGY”. The objective of TERI University Biotechnology Society (TUBS) is to highlight the important role played by biotechnology in the modern society, and its relevance to the contemporary imperative of sustainable development. Biotikos 2017 is being organized by the students and faculty Department of Plant Biotechnology, TERI University, to discuss and debate the promises and challenges of Nanobiotechnology. The proposed event is aimed at enlightening science undergraduates/post-graduate students and teachers about the upcoming areas in Nanobiotechnology and its applications in different scientific fields. Nanobiotechnology is growing as an independent discipline and it is adding a new dimension for the growth of biotechnology Perhaps, nanobiotechnology is most revolutionary and multidisciplinary field of modern science and has great impact on society through various applications in medical, imaging and sensor development. Nanobiotechnology, with the help of medical and biotechnological tools, has been used to diagnose, image and deliver the drug to target cells. In multifunctional therapeutics, it offers a platform to expedite its specific targeting to tumor tissue and delivery of an effective treatment, with negligible harm to healthy cells. Nano-integrated sensors are being developed to identify the harmful microbes like Salmonella, and other contaminants on food products before packaging and intake. Nano scale bio molecules such as protein, nucleic acid and biopolymers regulate and control biological systems with incredible precision. This event includes a series of lectures, panel discussion, quiz and poster presentation across various domains of Nanobiotechnology such as nanomaterial, nanobioscience, nanomedicine, agriculture, environmental nanobiotechnology, etc.
