WORKSHOP ON EPIGENETIC TECHNIQUES AS TOOLS FOR CANCER RESEARCH
(17th February to 19th February 2016)
Brochure
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP :
The eld of epigenetics holds the master key to unlock and unfold the mechanism concomitant with profound alteration in gene expression in response to environmental cues. It provides a clue in understanding the tenacity and the plasticity of the genome associated with chromatin modications and remodeling engines. Most of these epigenetic modulations known till date are characterized by the covalent modications of DNA, RNA and histone proteins including, DNA methylation, histone methylation and acetylation and non-coding RNAs (miRNA).

The systematic approach in interrogating the molecular aberrations complementary to epigenetic modication can potentially translate into more eective therapeutics in cancer. In this regard, the workshop will be focused on teaching the participants in learning epigenetic, molecular biology and cell culture techniques. Epigenetic research is emerging in India and will help the participants of the workshop to enhance their experimental skills and successfully implement them in their field of research.

COURSE COMPONENTS :
Following techniques will be demonstrated : 
 
Module I : Basics of cell culture
Module II : Basic techniques in molecular biology Isolation of DNA, RNA, protein.
Module III: Advanced techniques in molecular biology Immunohistochemistry, Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP).

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE ? :
Research Scholars, Graduate & Post-Graduate students, Early-career scientists and Faculty members engaged in study/research on epigenetics and cancer biology. Registrations to the Workshop is limited to 25 participants only on rst come rst served basis. Those who will send the lled in registration forms along with respective fees will only be considered for registrations. Registration fee will be refunded to the non-selected candidates.

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT :
The Department of Life Science, National Institute of Technology, Rourkela harbours well established laboratories with sophisticated instruments. It is currently running undergraduate, postgraduate and research programs viz., B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. in Life Science. Various laboratories of the department are dedicated to research in the eld of epigenetics (DNA methylation, histone modication and miRNA), cancer biology, microbiology, autophagy, drug delivery, computational biology, biophysics and food technology. The epigenetic tools and techniques for analysis of molecular modications will indeed oer better understanding of diseases, such as cancer. Besides, the new gateway in etiology including advanced techniques such as immunohistochemistry, chromatin immunoprecipitation and bisulphite modication will also oer a rationale in diagnosis and therapeutic intervention of cancer. During the short span of time, the department has organized national workshop. The department has received nancial assistance from DBT, DST,CSIR, ICMR, ICAR for R & D projects.
