  • Empowering Youth through Life Skills” (25/03/2015): Dr. Amba Sethi (Psychiatrist, Ekam) discussed that present generation of children and youth are more emotionally troubled than the earlier generations. This is evident by significant increase in youth suicides and also pschycological problems. The need of the hour is to make the youth emotionally intelligent and raise their self-esteem. They need to be taught to be more resilient and to cope with stress. We need to equip our children to face the struggle of life and to teach them life skills like problem solving and decision making.
  • Context: Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition.  Practicing yoga helps in controlling an individual's mind, body and soul. It brings together physical and mental disciplines to achieve a peaceful body and mind; it helps to manage stress.

 

 

2. Aim: Yoga is so effective for stress relief because, it encourages a good mood, an increase in mindfulness, and a healthy dose of self-compassion.

Activity: “Yoga: Stress and Personality Development” (31/03/2015)

Dr Vivek Bhartiya, (BNYS, M.A. (Yoga), Dip Aerobics) Zumba Instructor given a lecture on Stress removal and Personality Development by Yoga. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormone such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of anxiety can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Human body deals stress in 5 ways – Rationalization, Escape, Compensation, Diffusion & Repression. In his talk he explained how things influence our stress tolerance level.

Learning outcome:  Yoga regulates stress hormone and improves quality of life. Yoga is as a potential tool for the youth to deal with stress and to regulate themselves.

Beneficiary: M.Sc. Students and teaching staff.

6. Guest lecturers:

  1. Dr.A.K.Pati (Professor of Bio-science, Pt. Ravi Shankar Shukla University, Raipur 492 010, India) delivered lecture (11.9.14) on“Academic output –How to Augment and measure”h-index. He stated that the h-index is an index that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the published body of work of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications. The index can also be applied to the productivity and impact of a scholarly journal as well as a group of scientists, such as a department or university or country. The index was suggested in 2005 by Jorge E. Hirsch, a physicist at UCSD, as a tool for determining theoretical physicists' relative quality and is sometimes called the Hirsch index or Hirsch number

The index is based on the distribution of citations received by a given researcher's publications. Hirsch writes: 

A scientist has index h if h of his/her Np papers have at least h citations each, and the other (Np − h) papers have no more than h citations each. 

In other words, a scholar with an index of h has published h papers each of which has been cited in other papers at least h times. Thus, the h-index reflects both the number of publications and the number of citations per publication. The index is designed to improve upon simpler measures such as the total number of citations or publications. The index works properly only for comparing scientists working in the same field; citation conventions differ widely among different fields. 

The h-index serves as an alternative to more traditional journal impact factor metrics in the evaluation of the impact of the work of a particular researcher. Because only the most highly cited articles contribute to the h-index, its determination is a simpler process. Hirsch has demonstrated that h has high predictive value for whether a scientist has won honors like National Academy membership or the Nobel Prize. The h-index grows as citations accumulate and thus it depends on the "academic age" of a researcher.

3. Shri Hit Narayan Tandon, (Asstt. Professor, Sant Guru Ghashidas P.G. Govt. College, Kurud) delivered a lecture on e-BIRDING ( 27.02.2019)

 

Context: Humans have invented a variety of instruments to monitor the health of ecosystems. However, in some cases we can examine changein the environment only bythe behaviour of animals. Such animals are called as an indicator species. Birds are most prominent biological indicator. Diversity of birds serves as a very good indicator for ecosystem that tells about environment of the particular place in terms of their ambient conditions.

Aim: To know about our avian fauna and their significance by e-Birding.

Activity: For this purpose a lecture was organized on birding. The lecture was delivered by Mr. Hit Narayan Tandon, Asstt. Professor, Sant Guru Ghashidas P.G. Govt. College, Kurud on  27.02.2019. He explained breeding behavior of “Bronzed winged Jacana and Indian Grey Hornbill” which is a great observation by Dr. Raju Kasambe, ornithologists at BNHS Mumbai, India. He give details that how to observe birds and documents it. He make clear how we could collect the data on surrounding birds like small to large, common to rare, desert to dense forest, their songs and threats to them. Another point he discussed during his lecture was about an online application on e-birds designed by Cornell Lab of Ornithology, a unit of Cornell University New York. e-Bird is an online database of bird observations providing to scientists, researchers and amateur naturalists with real-time data about bird distribution and abundance.

Learning outcome: e-birding is one of the very good data base by which we know about the physical conditions of our ecosystem related with avian fauna. We also learned howto register ourselves in this group.

4. Mr Shouki lal  ( alumni of the department) delivered a lecture on “ T CELL”(12.04.2019)

Context: Through immunity our body defends itself against various infections which are caused by different pathogens like virus, bacteria & other microorganisms. The immune system is a network of cells, tissues, and organs that works together to protect our body. T cells are lymphocyte that develops in thymus gland and plays an important role in immunity.

Aim: To gain knowledge of immune system.

Activity: Mr. Shouki lal, alumni of the department delivered a lecture on T cell dated            12.04.2019. He explained the topic. T cells are developed in thymus from precursor cells derived from the bone marrow, so named as T cell. T cells are type of lymphocyte that can be distinguished from other lymphocytes by presence of T-cell receptor at the cell surface. Various types of T cells develop in the thymus, and their differentiation continues after the cells leave the thymus. There are different types of T cell according to their function, such as helper cells (helps in the development of cell mediated immunity), memory cell (they memorized previously encountered and responded to their cognate antigen), cytotoxic cell (kill foreign cells), delayed hypersensitivity cell (cell mediated immunity can be transferred with these cell), natural killer cell (kill tumor and viruses infected cell) and suppressor cell (suppress the immune response).

Learning outcome: Students learned about immune system especially concerned with T cell and also acquainted about weak immune system due to which a person becomes ill.

3. Inter Departmental lectures

  1. Dr. Suneeta Patra (Asstt. Professor, Department of Botany, Govt. N.P.G. College of Science, Raipur,C.G.) delivered a lecture on  GENE EXPRESSION IN PROKARYOTES AND EUKARYOTES (11.12.2018)

Context:Gene expression is synchronized process in whichcell react in the direction of its changing environment.

Aim: To know about how the proteins are formed in living organisms.

Activity: A lecture was organized on “Gene expression” delivered by Dr. SuneetaPatra, Asstt. Professor,Department of Botany, Govt. N.P.G. College of Science, Raipur (C.G.), dated on 11.12.2018. She explained gene expression is used by all living organisms from viruses to human being.Gene expression is the process in which information from a gene is used for the synthesis of a functional gene product that is proteins, but in non-protein coding genes like transfer RNA (tRNA) or small nuclear RNA (snRNA)genes, the product is a functional RNA.Two main processes involves in gene expression, the first is transcription in which genetic information on DNA is copied to a molecule of mRNAandthe second is translation in which the mRNA molecules after transcription leave the cell nucleus and enter in cytoplasm and synthesize the protein along with transfer RNA (tRNA) to get building blocks of proteins (amino acids) and ribosome that code together the amino acids as the instruction in mRNA.Protein synthesis differs in prokaryotes and eukaryotes because of variations in the initiation process and methods of translation carried out by the cells.In prokaryotes, protein synthesis takes place in the cytoplasm where the transcription and translation process are coupled and are carried out simultaneously. Whereas, in eukaryotes, protein synthesis starts in the cell nucleus and mRNA is translocated to the cytoplasm to complete the translation process.

Other major differences are:

•   Prokaryotic cells contain polycistronic mRNA, while eukaryotic cells have monocistronic mRNA.

•   Prokaryotic cells complete translation process in 70s ribosomes, while in eukaryotic cells the translation process occurs in 80s ribosomes.

•   In eukaryotes, genes have introns (intervening sequences) and exons (coding sequence) but in prokaryotes intron sequences are absent.

•   In prokaryotes, three initiation factors are involved, whereas eukaryotes have nine initiation Learning outcome:DNA provides a “blueprint” for the cell structure and physiology. DNA contains the information necessary for the cell to build protein. Protein synthesis is the biological processes by which specific proteins are synthesized by individual cells. If gene expression is wrong disease is caused.

2. A lecture on “RECOBINANT DNA TECHNOLOGY”( 07.01.2019) was delivered by  Dr. Vimal Kanungo, (Asstt.Professor, Department of Botany, Govt. N.P.G. College of Science, Raipur,C.G.)

Context:All living things have DNA within their cellscontains all of the information necessary to build and maintain an organism. It is a double helix chain of molecules called nucleotides that tell each cell what proteins to make. Small changes in the amino acid sequence of a protein can cause genetic diseases. rDNA stands for recombinant DNA.Recombinant DNA is a form of artificial DNA that is made by combining two or more segments of DNA (Natural or artificial) in laboratory conditions.

Aim: To know about the rDNA technology

Activity:A lecture was organized on rDNA technology, given by Dr. VimalKanungo, Asstt. Professor, Department of Botany, Govt. N.P.G. College of Science, Raipur (C.G.) dated on 07.01.2019.  He gave details knowledge about the rDNA. Recombinant DNA technology is  a means of in vitro gene manipulation. The technique comprises of four steps viz.; Isolation of gene of interest, Insertion of gene in to an appropriate vector, Transfer of foreign  DNA (gene) through the vector in to an appropriate host organism to produce recombinant DNA and identification of recombinants.

Isolation of gene of interest can be done by five methods.

•        Fragmentation by mechanical shearing

•        Shot gun method

•        Reverse transcriptase method

•        Hybridization method

•        Chemical Synthesis of gene.

 

Insertion of gene is done into appropriate vector. Various type of restriction endonuclease enzymes are used for cutting DNA. E. coli, Plasmid, Bacteriophage, Cosmid, Phasmid, Yeast, plant and animals are used as vector. Insertion of DNA in to vector forms various joints like dA –dT joints, Cohesive joints, Butt joints. Vectors are introduced in the host cell for cloing. Now a day’s aim of cloning is achieved by PCR technique. At the end rDNA is identified by using various methods like colony hybridization and complementation. Recombinant DNA technology has great potential hence, it has wide applications in the field of Medical, Agriculture, Industries and in Environmental protection.

Learning outcome: To know about rDNA technology and it’s important in detail.
