Events at Invertis University




on 31/Aug/2019

On 30th of August 2019, all students of BSc (IIIrd and Vth semester) total of 31 students with two faculty members (Dr. Sneha Verma and Dr. Satendra (Assistant Professor, Department of Applied Science & humanities, Invertis University, Bareilly) have visited a renowned institute in India i.e., CSIR Institute:National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) and an ICAR Institute: National Bureau of Fish Genetic Resources (NBFGR), Lucknow. Both the institute are well known for their repute national and international level in the Botanical research and in the area of fish conservation via genetic resources. Lucky enough we were warmly welcomed at the main gate by the NBRI and NBFGR staff members who gave us some rules and regulations which they follow.The major visit was done in “NBRI laboratory and museum” and “Hatchery unit and Genetic and computational research in Fish field in NBFGR”; advance molecular biology lab and plant biotechnology labs. In NBRI, the students have a exposure of NBRI museum, Herbarium unit, and their laboratories, Tissue culture and dry flower techniques, T.S. of trunk of Ficus, Moss house, fern house, Himalayans plants, Eco-education garden, Chrysanthemum varieties, Botanical garden, Conservatory section, Cactus house, Seed biology,Fly-ash management, Ethnobotany, Tribal India and White fly resistant cotton. The main purpose of this NBFGR institute visit was to get the students closer to the live experiments of lower vertebrates (fish) or the laboratory of fish handling and their cryopreservation, DNA barcoding. At NBFGR, we had visited the hatchery unit, cryopreservation unit, Fish museum. Those above units are the main sole of NBFGR institute. This particular visit to NBFGR was the first time for all that we were fortunate to meet with the Honourable retired ADG (Additional Director of General) of ICAR (Indian council of agriculture research) Dr. Sudhir Raizada and his team, who were working in mass scale production of fish. He was very generous to provide a quick presentation about the work that they do, and the custom methods of rearing of fish eggs and young ones that they implement in order to work on such large and challenging projects.Students were also visited central instrument facility of NBRI and NBFGR where students got a chance of demonstration of state of art biotechnology instruments. During the visit, students interacted with various scientists and discussed the basics of various research programmes in NBRI and NBFGR institute. This visit to CSIR and ICAR institute was very beneficial for the students to know or to share current research experiments for betterment of livelihood and the live experiment found in the aquatic life. The trip was a great success proving to be highly educational, not only in the field of their subjects, but in different aspects or research in botanical field to preserve flower, color of any flowering plant, to improve the quality and quantity of different grains, and how to rear or culture any fish species(i.e., pisciculture) and the important fish of Indian culture which are invaluable for enhancing a students' understanding. The opportunity to visit Lucknow is an asset to students in Life Science. Thanks again to Prof. P.P. Singh (Dean of Science and DSW), Dr. K.K. Dubey (Hod of Dept. ASH), Dr. Satendra Singh (Assistant Professor, Dept. of ASH), Dr. Santosh Joshi (Assistant Professor, Dept. of ASH), Mr. Churasiya (P.A. of NBFGR Director) and Dr. Vikas (Scientist of NBRI) and of course CI and DC of BSc V and III sem for making this trip possible.
