The Department of Biotechnology, National Institute of Technology (NIT), Durgapur is organizing a Virtual Conference on Current Advances in Rice Blast Research from December 1 to 5, 2020.
The National Institute of Technology, Durgapur is located at the heart of the steel city of Durgapur, one of the fastest-growing tier-II city, in the state of West Bengal. The Institute is located about 160 KMs north-west of Kolkata on the Howrah-Delhi Main Railway-Route and overlooking the National Highway No. 2 (the great Grand- Trunk Road).
The Institute spreads over an area of 187 acres of land. It is a fully residential and co-educational institute. At present, altogether about 5,000 students have been pursuing their Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Ph.D. programs, NIT, Durgapur.
This symposium will enable participants to gain knowledge about recent understandings on mechanisms of pathogenesis and molecular plant-pathogen interactions for the rice blast pathosystem, which will enable us to develop genetically resistant crop cultivars for future generations to come. At the same time, they will also get exposure to various functional genomics technologies being used to unravel minute details of the molecular host-pathogen interactions.
This meeting will stimulate and encourage interactions between the participants and world-renowned scientists. Understanding when and how the interaction between a plant and a pathogen leads to disease development will open up new avenues for crop protection, control and prevention strategies.
Who can Attend?
Under Graduate, Post Graduate students, Ph.D. Scholars, Post-Doctoral Fellows, Research Scientists & Faculty members. Abstracts can be submitted containing no more than 100 words including names of the authors, affiliations, and contact details.
There is no registration fee for the workshop. To register for the workshop, click here.
The first 100 participants will be selected on a first-come-first-serve basis. E-certificates will be delivered to each and every registered participant via their email IDs.
