Our group knows that conferences are educational outlets, which not only provide an arena for the undergraduates and the post-graduates to explore new implications and information related to their profession or stream, and also makes them, understand that academia is an inherently collaborative profession. Thus, our group has planned that each of its college will conduct, at least one national seminar in a year. Keeping that in mind, the Life-science Dept. of the VISM college conducted a National Conference on the ‘Recent Trends in Biotechnology’ on the 30th & 31st of Jan., 2016, which was attended by around 20-25 keynote speakers, many research-scholars and students who presented their papers via models, ppts., and posters. And what made the occasion even more special were the guests who were either scientists or Professors of the academia.
