Department Association
“CHIMERA” is the special name given to the association of biotechnology. Our association is determinedly functioning fascinatingly.Every academic year interested candidates are designated as President(s) (1 for UG & 1 for PG), General Secretary, Treasurer and Members intended for each class. One faculty from the department will be the Coordinator of the association.During the academic year 2013-2014, Chimera – The Association of Biotechnology has organized several events.
Dr.C.Elizabeth Rani Juneius conducted a Quiz competition on the topic “Scope of biotechnology” on 1st August, 2013.. Hemadharshini from I B. Sc BT has secured first place, Kavitha & Neha from III B. Sc BT secured second & third place.
Thajeshwar from III B. Sc BT gave the presentation on ‘DEADLIEST ANIMALS’ and Tharshika from III B. Sc BT gave the tidbits presentation on ‘DID U KNOW?’ A guest lecture was organized on 3.10.2013. Mr. Soosai Manickam, Associate Research officer from Christian Medical College, Vellore, presented his lecture on “Immunohistochemistry”. Furthermore he demonstrated animal handling as well as a collection of techniques such as Skin test for hypersensitivity reactions, isolation of pancreatic islet cells and basics of patch clamp technique. He had also nicely interacted with the students, explained the importance of research and highlighted the scope of biotechnology.
