March 14, 2023 @ 9:30 am – March 15, 2023 @ 2:30 pm Asia/Kolkata Timezone

Hands-on Training Program on

Horizontal gene transfer in Acinetobacter sp.

Date: 14-03-2023 & 15-03-2023

Organised by: Department of Microbiology, Patna Women’s College (Autonomous), Patna University

Beneficiaries: 50

Brief Report:

A two days Hands-on Training Program was organized by the Department of Microbiology on 14th and 15th March 2023, on the topic, Horizontal gene transfer in Acinetobacter sp. where the students were demonstrated and were asked to carry out the procedures involved in the creation of a competent cell, transformation of competent bacterial cells with plasmid DNA and calculation of the transformation efficiency. This Hands-on training program helped the students to understand and handle the techniques of Molecular Biology and Recombinant DNA technology. In this Hands-on Training program held, Acinetobacter Sp. was used for transformation with plasmid DNA. The students therefore learned the importance of genetic transformation in transfer of the desired characters into the host organism. The Hands-on Training program enthusiastically supervised by Dr. Jaya Philip, Head of Department of Microbiology and the assistant professors, Dr. Niti Yashvardhini, Dr. Preeti Swarupa and Dr. Swetnisha, proved to be a highly informative and useful one where the students were given a chance to perform the experiment thus enhancing the knowledge and polishing the laboratory skills of the young trainees.
