Nanobiotechnology is the merger of biological research with various fields of nanotechnology. Concepts that are enhanced through nanobiology include: nanodevices, nanoparticles, and nanoscale phenomena that occurs within the discipline of nanotechnology. This technical approach to biology allows scientists to imagine and create systems that can be used for biological research. Biologically inspired nanotechnology uses biological systems as the inspirations for technologies not yet created. For example, DNA nanotechnology or cellular engineering would be classified as bionanotechnology because they involve working with biomolecules on the nanoscale. Conversely, many new medical technologies involving nanoparticles as delivery systems or as sensors would be examples of nanobiotechnology since they involve using nanotechnology to advance the goals of biology.

The most important objectives that are frequently found in nanobiology involve applying nanotools to relevant medical/biological problems and refining these applications. Developing new tools, such as peptoid nanosheets, for medical and biological purposes is another primary objective in nanotechnology. New nanotools are often made by refining the applications of the nanotools that are already being used. The imaging of native biomolecules, biological membranes, and tissues is also a major topic for the nanobiology researchers. Other topics concerning nanobiology include the use of cantilever array sensors and the application of nanophotonics for manipulating molecular processes in living cells.

Recently, the use of microorganisms to synthesize functional nanoparticles has been of great interest. Microorganisms can change the oxidation state of metals. These microbial processes have opened up new opportunities for us to explore novel applications, for example, the biosynthesis of metal nanomaterials. In contrast to chemical and physical methods, microbial processes for synthesizing nanomaterials can be achieved in aqueous phase under gentle and environmentally benign conditions. This approach has become an attractive focus in current green bionanotechnology research towards sustainable development.

3. Bioinformatics Laboratory

Bioinformatics (or computational biology) aims at solving biological problems using mathematical, statistical and computational techniques. Modern biological and medical research cannot be done without bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is a multidisciplinary field in which physical sciences, life sciences, computer science, and engineering are merged to solve both fundamental and applied problems in biology. You will learn the fundamentals of bioinformatics, which include sequence analysis, protein and RNA structural analysis, genomics, phylogenetics, analysis of high-throughput data, machine learning methods etc. Students with advanced bioinformatics skills are in high demand in both academia and industry because the new experimental methods produce very large amounts of data, which require computational analysis. Upon completion of this course, the students will achieve the following objectives:

  1. Develop an understanding of the basic principles of molecular and cell biology.
  2. Become familiar with existing tools and resources for computational analysis of biological data, including sequences, phylogenies, micro arrays, ontologies, and bio-molecular interactions. Develop an awareness of the computational problems that arise in the modeling and analysis of living systems.
  3. Understand basic abstractions and computational approaches used to formulate and address these problems.
  4. Be able to use and extend existing computational infrastructure for analyzing biological data.
  5. Development of software tools, algorithms, and databases for gene identification, protein structural prediction, clustering analysis, and data mining.
  6. Application of bioinformatics to disease diagnosis, classification, prognosis and treatment.
  7. Application of bioinformatics to fundamental biology and systems biology.

4. Biochemistry Laboratory

Biochemistry involve introduction to modern biochemical techniques, including analytical methods for macromolecules, enzyme reactions, spectrophotometry, centrifugation, chromatographic techniques, electrophoresis, structure modeling. The purpose of the biochemistry laboratory is to introduce the experimental methods used in the research laboratory and to acquaint you with the properties of biomolecules such as amino acids, peptides, proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates. This course is intended to introduce you to some of the most widely used experimental procedures in biochemistry, including protein purification, qualitative and quantitative characterization of macromolecules and enzyme assays. You will also gain some familiarity with some of the types of equipment frequently used in biochemistry.

5. Bioprocess Engineering Laboratory

In this laboratory, students will learn key methods of microbial production (e.g. fermentation, recombinant protein production and purification). It is an integrated biological process laboratory experience, including fermentation with downstream bioseparation for the production of a purified product of potential commercial interest. After completing this laboratory, the student will be able to describe the most common equipment, materials and methods related to biotechnological processes, microbial growth and cultivation and sterilization. The student will be able to apply different mathematical formulas for biocatalysis and for the bioreactor performance and use those to plan and analyze bioprocesses. The student will also be able to produce, analyze and interpret data from bioprocesses.

6. Cell Biology and Microbiology Laboratory

In this laboratory, students will be trained on microbiological methods for monitoring of microorganisms in natural habitats, and on methods to investigate the growth of microorganisms in different systems. This course majorly involves the isolation and identification of microorganisms, microbial growth, design of culture media, microorganisms as biocatalysts, environmental microbiology, quantitative microbiology, introduction to microbial genetics, and genetic engineering. Cell biology laboratory involves different types of microscopes, different growth stages of cells and also check the osmolality of cell in different types of solution. The convergence of cytology, molecular genetics and biochemistry has made modern cell biology one of the most exciting and dynamic disciplines in contemporary biology.

7. Genetic Engineering Laboratory

Genetic engineering lab is the science of modifying the genetic material of a cell or living organism to produce a new trait in that organism, or to make a biological substance such as a protein or hormone. A transgenic animal is one whose genetic makeup has been modified through genetic engineering. In genetic engineering laboratory, we amplify the desired sequence of the gene with the help of PCR and identify the gene of interest with the help of Agarose Gel Electrophoresis, identify the desired protein sequence by SDS PAGE. The course will cover transmission and molecular genetics and their application to the solution of difficult practical problems.
