The faculty groups in the department are involved in different areas of research including Microbiology, Genetic Disease Analysis, Mutation Analysis, Genetic Engineering and Medical Biotechnology, Fermentation and Bioprocess Engineering, Bioremediation and Bioplastic, Bioinformatics, Plant & Animal Biotechnology, Environmental Biotechnology, Translational Biotechnology (Tissue Engg. & Targeted drug designing) and Nanomaterials.
Our laboratory focused on the basic cell culture & Cell banking techniques of Cancer Cell and Stem cell, its various industrial applications with references of modern translational therapy i.e regenerative & personalized medicines; drug design. Our main goal is to support the stem cell-based approaches to study and treat illnesses ranging from osteoarthritis to Alzheimer's disease to Cancer in future.
“By maintaining our pace of discovery and accelerating discovery to clinical translation, stem cells will transform medicine-providing replacement tissue, rejuvenating aging organ systems and creating models of human disease to enable drug discovery and new personalized treatments”. We introduced Stemformatics first time in India (Indian Science Congress, Mysore,3rd Jan to 7th Jan, 2016) to develop more effective treatment for cancer by designing cancer stem cell targeted drug. Recently, MIET has launched two “State of Art” Translational biotechnology laboratory first time in NCR to trained their young aspirants as per National and international demand.
The Founder and PI of this laboratory is Professor Eliza Chakraborty. Earlier, Professor Eliza Chakraborty was with Epigenetics Laboratory, University of Southern California, Los Angeles. Since 2015, she is serving at MIET & introduced Stemformatics, for the first time in India. Stemformatics is a field where stem cell biologist and bioinformatician can use the same platform to research towards effective personalized medicine, novel drug design for human wellbeing.
International Society for Stem Cell Research reported this year that eighty different deceases can be treated using stem cells. Already 5000 people received stem cell therapy. So MIET Translational Biotechnology lab has focused on training students in this most dazzling part of biotechnology, with huge job prospects as per National & International demand.
These labs focused on future Translational therapy i.e "providing replacement tissue, rejuvenating aging organ systems and creating models of human disease to enable drug discovery and new personalized treatments" and Cancer Stem Cell Targeted study, early detection & cure of cancer.
Outcome of our teaching will cover following aspects.
Recent advances in the field of nanotechnology and its application exists virtually in every sphere of our day to day life. With the increasing exposure of nanomamaterials to humans the need of the hour is to scientifically establish whether the nanomaterials are safe and if yes, to what extent?
With this view in mind Nanotoxicity & Drosophila Research Lab was established in 2015 under the DST Funded Research Project of WOS-A. Till date this laboratory has received R&D funding grants of Rs 57,54,000/- from different government agencies such as DBT, DST, UPCST.
This lab is dedicated for advance research in Nanotoxicology & Drosophila genetics.
The key research focus areas of this lab include:
This lab welcomes interested candidates of B. Tech, M. Tech and Ph. D for advance training in the field of Nanotoxicology & Drosophila genetics.
Due to changes in environments conditions plant & are exposed to stresses like drought, heat, salt and heavy metals which is manifested in enzyme profile & metabolites. Screening the different tolerant plants on the basis of enzymes has been undertaken. Photochemical like flavonoid, alkaloid, anthocyanin etc. exhibit antioxidative activity. Search for such antioxidative phytochemical as a step for chemopreventive agents to combat cancer has been initiated. Besides, other enzymes utilized in pharmaceutical industry are also characterized. Micropropagation of elite varieties of commercial crop for cultivation in Meerut region which can benefit farmers is going on. Efforts are going on for biopesticides which are ecofriendly and user friendly for farmers. Molecular markers are utilized for analysis of plant diversity.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Instrumentation facility in the department is equipped with all the modern instruments required for sophisticated research. This includes gradient PCR, UV/Vis. Spectrophotometer, HPLC, Ultracentrifuge, Trinocular microscope etc. This Lab is suitable for conducting practical as well as research work.
