About the School

School of Life Sciences has been established with twin objectives of making the campus cross disciplinary and initiating teaching, research and training programs across the areas of life sciences. The school has been visualized to emerge as a hub for state of the art research in all fields related to Bioinformatics, Molecular Biology, Bio-Chemistry, Microbiology, Bio-Technology, Cancer Biology, and Genetics etc., through sponsored projects from industries and Government agencies. It has also been visualized to be a training centre for scientists, researchers, clinical staff of hospitals, industry workers in advanced laboratory techniques with hands on experience, through short term intensive programs. The school offers Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Doctoral programmes in Life Sciences. For more information please visit www.bsauniv.ac.in

About the Summer School Protein engineering is the design of new enzymes or proteins with desirable functions. It is based on the use of recombinant DNA technology to change amino acid sequences. Engineered enzymes and proteins find numerous industrial applications. Engineered enzymes are in high demand in biofuel, pharmaceutical, detergent, textile, paper / pulp and food industries. However a lot of research is needed to understand protein stability. In view of the potentially huge significance of this field of research, we are taking the initiative to organize lectures and hands-on workshop involving both experimental and computational aspects of Protein Engineering. The summer school will explore in detail the critical aspects and current issues associated with engineering and design of stable proteins. The Summer School is aimed to provide insights into successful applications of rational protein engineering strategies in designing stable enzymes and therapeutic proteins. This year, the focus will be on Protein Engineering approaches studied using various computational methods and PCR based experimental methods. It is expected that the outcomes of this summer school will increase our appreciation of the state of the art of Protein engineering methodologies; stimulation of research in the field in the country and strengthen industrial collaboration. This workshop also will be the starting of our understanding of how the field is being utilised at its fullest in design of industrially useful enzymes and proteins.
