5 Today, technology has entered into an alliance with Life Science. The ultimate goal of this new and emerging field is to enable the discovery of new biological insights, and create a global perspective by unifying principles in Life-Science that can be distinguished. Extending the reach, Bioinformatics, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toxicology, Biodiversity, Biotechnology and Microbiology contributes to advancements in agriculture, fermentation industries, animal health, marine biotechnology, crime detection, anthropology, and bio-warfare. About the theme National Conference on Bioinformatics & Contemporary Drifts in Life Science 12th December to 14th December 2005

6 The following fields will be covered in the scientific sessions of the conference. Contemporary drifts in 1.Bioinformatics 2.Pharmaceutical Sciences 3.Plant Sciences 4.Animal Sciences 5.Toxicology 6.Biodiversity 7.Biotechnology 8.Microbiology The scientific programme will have invited lectures and poster presentations followed by discussion. Scientific Sessions National Conference on Bioinformatics & Contemporary Drifts in Life Science 12th December to 14th December 2005

7 Bioinformatics stands at the interface of molecular biology and information sciences and promises to provide critical tools for managing the immense volume of biological data. The Bioinformatics market primarily is driven by the need of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to increase the efficiency of their drug discovery and development efforts. These organizations use Bioinformatics to identify drug targets and drug candidates, decreasing the time to bring new therapeutics to market. National Conference on Bioinformatics & Contemporary Drifts in Life Science 12th December to 14th December 2005

8 The Genomics revolution has created a new technology landscape with areas such as Genomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics, Cheminformatics, Molecular modeling, Microarrays etc. Almost all the leading Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies are focusing their efforts to discover new targets and to design new and better drugs. There is a huge shortage in manpower with the requisite skill sets in new technologies. National Conference on Bioinformatics & Contemporary Drifts in Life Science 12th December to 14th December 2005

9 Do Biological Sciences differ from Life Sciences? Life sciences comprise the biological sciences plus applied sciences that consider human welfare and the environmental impacts of human activity. Life sciences refers to the practice of using cellular and molecular processes to create new products, enhance industrial efficiency and productivity, safeguard the environment and enhance our quality of life through improved pharmaceuticals, diagnostic medicine and food production. National Conference on Bioinformatics & Contemporary Drifts in Life Science 12th December to 14th December 2005

10 Biotechnology, the use of biological processes, as through the exploitation and manipulation of living organisms or biological systems, in the development or manufacture of a product or in the technological solution to a problem. As such, biotechnology is a general category that has applications in pharmacology, medicine, agriculture, and many other fields. The techniques of genetic engineering have been used to manipulate the DNA (genetic material) of bacteria and other microorganisms to manufacture biological products such as drugs (insulin, interferon, and growth hormones). Plants and foods with such desired qualities as prolonged shelf life or increased resistance to diseases and pests have been created through genetic engineering; that is, by inserting DNA from other organisms. Livestock have also been genetically altered to produce medically useful substances. The field of biotechnology also includes gene therapy, in which attempts are made to insert normal or genetically altered genes into cells to treat genetic disorders and chronic diseases.

11 In 1996 Dolly was born using somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). National Conference on Bioinformatics & Contemporary Drifts in Life Science 12th December to 14th December 2005

12 Microbiology is the study of microorganisms, including viruses, prokaryotes and simple eukaryotes. Today, most of the work in microbiology is done using methods from biochemistry and genetics. It is also related to pathology, immunology, and epidemiology as many microorganisms are pathogens. Microbiologists have made many fundamental contributions to biology and medicine, especially in the fields of biochemistry, genetics, and cell biology. Microbes have many traits that make them ideal model organisms. The extensive characterization of microbes has allowed them to be used in industry and as experimental tools in different branches of biology. National Conference on Bioinformatics & Contemporary Drifts in Life Science 12th December to 14th December 2005

13 Pharmacology, study of the changes produced in living animals by chemical substances, especially the actions of drugs, substances used to treat disease. Pharmacologists, emphasizing the mechanisms by which drugs act, draw on the disciplines of physiology, pathology, biochemistry, and bacteriology. Pharmacology embraces a number of sciences, including pharmacodynamics (the study of the action of drugs on a living body), therapeutics (use of drugs and method of administration in treatment for disease), materia medica (study of the source, composition, characteristics, and preparation of drugs), toxicology (the study of poisons and their action and of methods of treating poisoning), pharmaceutical chemistry (chemistry in relation to drugs), and pharmacy (the preparation and dispensing of drugs for medical use). National Conference on Bioinformatics & Contemporary Drifts in Life Science 12th December to 14th December 2005

14 Toxicology, study of poisons, or toxins, from the standpoint of detection, isolation, identification, and determination of their effects on the human body. Toxicology may be considered the branch of pharmacology devoted to the study of the poisonous effects of drugs. It is also a division of forensic medicine concerned with the detection of the criminal use of poisons. National Conference on Bioinformatics & Contemporary Drifts in Life Science 12th December to 14th December 2005

15 Biodiversity or Biological diversity means the full range of variety and variability within and among living organisms and the ecological complexes in which they occur, and encompasses ecosystem or community diversity, species diversity, and genetic diversity. Biological diversity, simply stated, is the diversity of life... Genetic diversity is the combination of different genes found within a population of a single species, and the pattern of variation found within different populations of the same species. Species diversity is the variety and abundance of different types of organisms which inhabit an area. Ecosystem diversity encompasses the variety of habitats that occur within a region, or the mosaic of patches found within a landscape. National Conference on Bioinformatics & Contemporary Drifts in Life Science 12th December to 14th December 2005

16 Botany, science devoted to the study of plants. Humanity's earliest concern with plants was with their practical uses, i.e., for fuel, clothing, shelter, and, particularly, food and drugs. Modern botany has expanded into all areas of biology, including gardening, medicine, taxonomy, morphology, anatomy, molecular biology, and has developed such specialties as ethnobotany, which studies the use of plants in preindustrial societies. Allied with experimental botany are the various practical aspects that have developed into specific scientific disciplines (e.g., agriculture, agronomy, horticulture, and forestry). National Conference on Bioinformatics & Contemporary Drifts in Life Science 12th December to 14th December 2005

17 Zoology, branch of biology concerned with the study of animal life. From earliest times animals have been vitally important to man Modern zoology has not only concentrated on expanding the knowledge of cytology, physiology, anatomy, embryology, histology, paleontology, genetics and biochemistry, but it has also explored such areas as psychology, anthropology, and ecology.
