Biotechnology is a fascinating field of biology, which bridges between all realms of life sciences and technology. Keeping this in mind, the School of Biotechnology, Adamas University had organized an international conference on 9th April 2018 on a theme entitled “Biotechnology: A Paradigm Shift in Health and Agriculture”. All members of the organizing committee hence expressed their gratitude to respected Chancellor Prof. Samit Ray, Vice-Chancellor Prof. Madhusudan Chakraborty, Pro-Vice Chancellor Prof. Arun K. Majumdar, Prof. N. L. Mitra, and all respected advisory committee members for making the conference a big success.
Modern Biotechnology has advanced rapidly and has emerged as a potential science for providing benefits to all the aspects of human welfare. It has a great impact in almost all the domains of human life, may it be health, environment, foods or agriculture. The conference turned out to be a great platform indeed for researchers, scientists, academicians, and industry experts where they shared experiences discussed research findings and acquired the desired knowledge for the practical exercise.
We were privileged of having many national and internationally renowned scientists like Prof. Peter Walden (Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany), Prof. Andras Koris (Szent Istvan University, Hungary), Prof. Soumen Bhattacharjee (University of Burdwan), Prof. U. B. Mohapatra (Director of Biotechnology, Govt. of Odisha), Prof. S. K. Bardhan Roy (Krishi Rasyan Pvt. Ltd.), Prof. Chanchal Dasgupta, Prof. Syamal Roy, and others with us in the conference. In addition, there was a poster session by students and faculties from Adamas University as well as from other reputed Institutions like Burdwan University, Jadavpur University, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya. This event was greatly noticeable where all organizing committee members, as well as scientists, appreciated their effort a lot.
