ICAR-Sponsored Short Course on Techniques in Insect Molecular Biology and Toxicology

September 07 - 16, 2016

Organized By

ICAR-Sugarcane Breeding Institute

(Indian Council of Agricultural Research)

Coimbatore – 641 007 Tamil Nadu

Objective

To impart hands-on training on instrumentation and novel methods involved in Insect Molecular Biology and Insecticide Toxicology.

Course content

The topics listed hereunder will be discussed in detail by the highly competent scientists of the NARS (National Agricultural Research System) with greater emphasis on practicals than their respective theoretical aspects:

Theory and practice of generating DNA barcodes for insects 

Cloning and characterizing the ‘Folmer Region’ of COI gene from insects 

Detection of insecticide resistance by different methods 

Simple and reliable techniques for identifying the mechanisms of insecticide resistance  Development of simple, effective and cost-effective IRM packages 

Sample preparation methods in pesticide residue analysis 

Determination of pesticide residues in agricultural, environmental and food matrices using HPLC 

Quantification of insecticide residues in GC with appropriate detectors viz., MS, ECD and FPD 

Isolation and characterization of novel Bacillus thuringiensis strains from environmental samples  Cry protein purification and characterization 

Molecular characterization of entomopathogenic nematodes

Who can participate? The applicant should possess a Master Degree in Agricultural Entomology/Zoology/related disciplines and he/she should be in service (not below the rank of Scientist/Assistant Professor) in the ICAR/SAU/CU/ Colleges recognized by the ICAR for the award of fellowships.
