Prof. T. S. Keshava Prasad gave an extensive talk on “Proteomics and Proteogenomic Approaches to Investigate Human Diseases” at Amrita School of Biotechnology on 3rd February, 2016. Dr. T. S. Keshava Prasad, Faculty Scientist from Institute of Bioinformatics, is leading IOB's efforts on the development of the Human Protein Reference Database. Dr. Keshava Prasad, in his talk, emphasized using genomic and proteomic strategies as a discovery platform to investigate biomarkers for infectious diseases including tuberculosis, rabies, chikungunya and malaria. Biomarkers are molecules specifically associated with a biological condition and there are various measures by which we can study them, such as: DNA microarrays, Comparative genomic hybridization arrays (arrayCGH), Quantitative proteomics and DNA sequencing.

Rivers and similar surface waters in India are highly polluted owing to direct discharge of wastewater without adequate treatment. Untreated industrial effluents contain harmful pathogens, heavy metals and agricultural runoff consisting of nutrients, pesticides, antibiotics and other harmful products. Efforts to ensure the availability of safe drinking water, sustainable infrastructure and good public health practices are complex global issues that require multiple stakeholders and scientific disciplines to generate solutions that are cost-effective and sustainable. Canada and India share strong bilateral ties, including a well-established history of research collaborations. At the same time, India’s government has made public-private partnerships a priority to deal with an infrastructure deficit that compromises public health and economic growth. This opens opportunities for technology sharing, professional development and partnerships with Canada.

Dean's Message

The Amrita School of Biotechnology which was founded in September 2004, has already established its presence as a preferred institution of higher learning in the field of Biotechnology and related Life Sciences, in the short time that it has been in existence. The School offers Undergraduate programmes in Biotechnology and Microbiology as well as Postgraduate programmes in Biotechnology, Microbiology and Bioinformatics. A Ph.D. programme has also been initiated. The Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, under its “Mission Reach” programme selected The School of Biotechnology to be a “Center of Relevance and Excellence” (CORE) in Biomedical Technology with a research program focused on the development of preventive and therapeutic innovations.

Additionally, a number of diverse research projects including Wound healing, Target discovery and validation, RNAi, Computational modeling and development of Anti-snake venom therapeutics are in progress with adequate research funding. The School also coordinates the MHRD effort to design and create virtual laboratories for Biotechnology in collaboration with IIT Mumbai and IIT Delhi at the national level. The cutting-edge curricula along with state-of-the-art facilities of the School will provide a solid foundation in the biological sciences. In addition, the dedicated, experienced faculty, offer students an opportunity to interact, learn, advance and succeed with career in Biotechnology and related life sciences. With Amma’s Grace, there will be ample opportunities for everyone to be a part of the plan. Welcome to this Temple of Learning. I wish you the very best in all your efforts.
