Dr. Suresh Korpole of IMTECH took the students to Microbial Type Culture Collection (MTCC) centre (a national facility) of IMTECH and demonstrated how microbial cultures are collected, multiplied, coded, preserved and supplied to the researchers. Dr. Manoj Kumar of IMTECH showed Bioinformatics and Mathematical Modelling centre of IMTECH to the students where he explained how bioinformatics tools are developed and accessed to analyse and engineer pharmaceutically and pathologically important proteins. The trip was extremely successful and helpful to the students in developing their interest in research and learning about the current important areas of research and development.
