NEWS AND HIGHLIGHTS

  • In collaboration with Prof. Stevanato of University of Padova, Italy, Prof. Subhasini Srinivasan of IBAB has published a research article in Frontiers in Plant Science titled “SNP Alleles Associated With Low Bolting Tendency in Sugar Beet”. The study identified two important single nucleotide polymorphisms in the Sugar Beet genome that are associated with a low bolting phenotype. The authors suggest that this can be further exploited for marker-assisted breeding.

  • On 2nd August 2021, Dr. Kshitish K Acharya, Professor, IBAB, served as a jury member for selection of start-ups for the BIRAC-KTech grant, as part of the Technical Advisory Resource Group (TARG). This grant provides seed capital to start-ups in the Biotechnology Sector in the form of Equity Investment or other resources, as deemed fit.

  • Dr. Rajalakshmi Srinivasan of InStem, Bengaluru, gave a talk on Aug 23, 2021 as part of the IBAB Research Seminar Series. Speaking about “Understanding the coupling between transcription and metabolism and its impact on growth and aging”, Dr. Rajalakshmi discussed the use of genetic and transcriptomic approaches to study the cross-talk between amino acid metabolism and cellular aging in budding yeast.

  • The Bio-IT Centre at IBAB organized a four-day online workshop on “Fundamentals of NGS analysis and Drug Discovery” from 26-28 August 2021. This workshop covered basic concepts in genomics such as analyzing Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data, mining and analyzing genome and protein sequences, and performing structural analysis leading to drug discovery. Hands-on training in programming (UNIX and R), NGS analysis and drug discovery pipelines were provided. A total of 21 participants from across India were trained.
