One Week Course on An insight into human infectious Diseases"

February 6th – 10th, 2017

Centre for Biotechnology , Anna University , Chennai, Tamilnadu.

Course is offered by Medical College of Wisconsin, USA. Organized by Centre for Biotechnology, Anna University, India.


Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic prokaryotes and eukaryotes, microorganism such as fungi, viruses, bacteria and single celled or multicellular parasites. The diseases can be spread directly or indirectly between individuals. Aminoacyl tRNA synthetases (AARS) are an acknowledged molecular target for anti-infective drug discovery. However, the evolutionarily novel secondary functions for this family of enzymes makes the number of strategies much greater and thus increases the variety of useful strategies to discover agonists or antagonists of AARS primary or secondary functions. This class will introduce students to the various approaches labs around the world have taken to discover therapeutic AARS inhibitors. The course would expose participants to the fundamental diversity of drug discovery targets related to tRNA synthetases (AARS) – prokaryotic versus eukaryotic and build confidence and capability amongst the participants in the application of AARS structure and function to drug discovery. It would also provide exposure to practical problems through case studies and projects on the development of new AARS inhibitors as anti-infectives and immunomodulators.

Enhancing the capability of the participants to consider the multifunctional biological activities of synthetases for complementary drug discovery strategies. There will also be a practical computer session on database mining of new AARS targets to treat human parasitic diseases.

Course participants will learn these topics through lectures practical sessions and tutorials. Also assignments will be shared to stimulate research motivation of participants.


Centre for Biotechnology: From February 6th  to  February 10th  2017

Number of participants for the course will be limited to fifty.
