About the Biotech Hub
The Biotech Hub, S. Kula Women’s College, Nambol was established in 21.09.2010 (No. BT/04/NE/2009) under the financial support from Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India. The Hub procured many High-end equipment like PCR, Gel Doc System, Nanodrop spectrophotometer for establishing faculty research works in area of molecular biology. After completion of five years progress made by the Biotech Hub, DBT expert team upgraded the Hub into Advanced Level Institutional Biotech Hub in 2016-17 and the Biotech Hub, S. Kula Women’s College is the only Advanced level Biotech Hub in the state of Manipur in 2017-18. The Advanced Institutional Biotech Hub, S. Kula Women’s College, Nambol, Manipur has organized 20of Hands-on Training Programme and conducted 105 Awareness/outreach programme to host and other Institutions. Coordinator and Research Associate were delivered 33 of Invited Talks to other colleges including Don Bosco College, Maram in the area of DNA Sequence analysis & Bioinformatics. The Biotech Hub of the college is nurturing Biotechnology tools & techniques to the young students of the state since 2010. The Institutional Biotech Hub providing a regular winter/summer school programme to the students in the field of molecular Biotechnology, plant tissue culture techniques, etc. One DST-Women Scientist (WOS-B) has been completed his project by fully utilizing the Biotech Hub facilities of the College. The Advanced Institutional Biotech Hub of the college is offering short term Internship programme for UG & PG students as well as Ph.D. Scholars also in the field of molecular Biology and Bioinformatics in coordination with BIF Centre of the college. Fifteen papers were published in the peer reviewed journals by utilizing the facilities of Biotech Hub.
The main objective of the DBT-Biotech Hub is to propagate & enhance the Knowledge of Biotechnology Tools & Techniques especially in the field of Plant Molecular Biology to the UG, PG & Ph. D. Students.
