INTRODUCTION:

The horizon of modern biosciences and bioengineering are rapidly expanding due development of various new biophysical manipulation and measurement techniques. These advances has allowed experimentalists to ask and answer questions not even dreamed of earlier. This course is aimed at providing an overview of the diversity of modern biophysical experimental techniques used to study of biological systems ranging from molecular to the cellular levels.

BROAD OBJECTIVES:

The course is intended for faculty members of engineering colleges, engaged in teaching biology courses, who seek an introduction to modern biophysical experimental techniques. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the course, basic knowledge of physics and mathematics is expected but strong attempts will be made to give an intuitive understanding of the mathematics and physics involved.

 

COURSE CONTENTS:

The topics covered in this course include fluorescence microscopy, confocal microscopy, NMR spectroscopy, Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET), Fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), optical tweezers and bio-AFM. This course also involves lab visit to various laboratories of IIT Bombay and possibly to nearby institutes which have been using these modern biophysical techniques.

 

ELIGIBILITY:

The topics covered in this course include fluorescence microscopy, confocal microscopy, NMR spectroscopy, Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET), Fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), optical tweezers and bio-AFM. This course also involves lab visit to various laboratories of IIT Bombay and possibly to nearby institutes which have been using these modern biophysical techniques.

 

TEACHING FACULTY:

The core teaching faculty will be from the Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering who have been using these biophysical techniques in their day to day research. Subject experts from other institutes will be invited for special lectures.

 

LECTURE NOTES:

Hard copies of the lecture notes/presentations will be made available to participants at the end of lecture/presentation.

 

COURSE EVALUATION:

Successful participants would be awarded `Course Completion Certificate’.

 

VENUE FOR CLASSES:

Course will be held at Seminar Hall, Van Vihar Guest House, IIT Bombay.

 

TRANSPORT, BOARDING AND LODGING:

Participants are entitled for Second Class (Sleeper Class) or III AC railway fare to and fro by the shortest route from college to IIT Bombay. All participants will be given auto fare from Kanjurmarg/Andheri to IIT on the dates of arrival and departure. Local participants will be paid second class railway fare or BEST Bus fare.

Boarding and lodging will also be provided free of cost. Accommodation will be provided in the students Hostels. Since accommodation is limited, family members of the participants cannot be accommodated.

REGISTRATION:

There is no registration fee for the course. All short-listed candidates are required to confirm their participation by sending a Demand Draft of Rs. 2000/- in the name of “Registrar IIT Bombay”. The above amount will be refunded to the participant if he / she attends the course. In case a participant does not attend the course, the above amount will be forfeited.

Candidates should complete either enclosed registration form or registration form downloaded from website and prepare one page write-up stating the reasons to attend this course. Candidates should send the registration form and one page write-up by mail, email or fax to the Coordinator. Confirmation of eligible candidates will be on a first come first served basis up to a maximum of 60 candidates.

The completed registration forms should be received by the Coordinator latest by October 30, 2017.
