Training/Academic Projects/Dissertation work in Biotechnology

JNIAS invites applications for training/academic projects/dissertation work in biotechnology for students from various streams of Life Sciences (M.Sc, M.Tech (Biotechnology) etc…)

JNIAS offers projects in wide range of areas include

  • Genetic Toxicology (in-vitro)
  • Molecular Biology
  • Bioinformatics
  • In silico studies & Drug Designing
  • Sequence analysis.
  • Protein structure function studies.

Partial list of the projects which can be done at JNIAS 

  • Association of - gene in Breast cancer development.
  • Genotoxicity of Heavy metals  (in- vitro studies)
  • Study on  - gene polymorphism  in association with cervical cancer
  • A study on effect of - pesticide  (in-vitro studies)

 Students will be provided with internet facility for literature search and Guidance in thesis writing and presentation.

 Certificates are issued after the successful completion of the project.

 The outstanding project works will be encouraged for publications on the interest of the students.

 We will encourage student’s innovative ideas based on the feasibility and time span.

Based on the performance of students, they will be absorbed as Project Assistants for the ongoing projects.

Note: We do not provide any accomodation facilities for the trainees.
