About INSCR

Microorganisms play an important role in the existence of human beings on earth. They have immense potential to be used in development of bioactive compounds, fermentation, bioremediation, waste management, biofuel generation, industrial & agricultural products, education, research and much more. The present Conference will emphasize on the role of microbes in achieving the 17 goals of sustainable development which were proposed in 2016 with the objective of providing the fundamental necessities including food, cloth, shelter and healthcare facilities to all strata of society. The major challenges being faced by the humans including drug resistance, emergence of new diseases, increasing food production and climate issues will be discussed in depth by the experts of their respective field. Along with this, the Conference will provide a common platform to the researchers and academicians from esteemed Institutes across the world to share their ideas and experiences. Participants will be benefitted with the knowledge of different branches of Microbiology including Agricultural Microbiology, Industrial Microbiology, Clinical Microbiology, Marine Microbiology to name a few. Participants would also be given the introduction of Microbiology at a basic level of education and an insight into the career perspectives of Microbiology.

About ISCB

The Ciliate Biology Forum, Delhi, India has previously organized three International Symposium on Ciliate Biology in the year 2007, 2018 and 2022. This year, Acharya Narendra Dev College, University of Delhi is organizing a Symposia in hybrid mode in collaboration with INSCR on April 05, 2024.

The symposium aims to achieve the following –

  1. 1. To provide a platform for the ciliate interest groups to exchange information, present latest research findings and establish collaborations
  2. 2. To enthuse a large number of Indian and foreign undergraduate and postgraduate students to take up ciliated protists as their preferred research area
  3. 3. To provide networking opportunities for students wishing to take up doctoral or postdoctoral research on ciliates

The scientific content shall include a wide gamut of aspects of ciliate biology: Biodiversity, Ecology, Evolution, Systematics, Genomics, Epigenetics, DNA Barcoding, Proteomics, Ciliates and Industry, Ciliates as model organisms in UG/PG teaching and in research, other individual specializations. Additionally, there will be a parallel session open for presentations in the field of microbiology.

The Ciliate Biology Forum seeks the goodwill of scientists and scientific bodies for a fruitful conduct of the symposium.

The symposium is likely to have participation of over 10 international ciliate experts sharing their research work. Members of the Ciliate Biology Forum will also have the platform to share their current research. This will include research scholars who are presently engaged in ciliate research.
