Network of Biotech Capacity Building Cells [N-BT-CBCs]

Concept

The success in ‘Transcripting Brighter Bio Future’ from the neo tool-Biotechnology shall need world-class man-power and both the state and the central governments are working towards it. The Gujarat State Biotechnology Mission [GSBTM] formed under the ages of Department of Science and Technology, Government of Gujarat; and operational with a few Sector Specialists headed by a Mission Director since April, 2004; is also taking some small but discrete steps towards development of an Institutional Network for Capacity Building Cells [N-BT-CBCs] in the field of Biotechnology.

It is being envisaged that structured mentoring and provision of an institutional framework of Cells for Capacity Building shall help the budding biotechnologists to aim and hit high; at increasingly competitive examinations for professional careers in the field of Biotechnology.

Network of Capacity Building Cells in Biotechnology [N-BT-CBC]

The State Government has strategized by formation of a couple of Capacity Building Cells in Biotechnology [BT-CBCs] at various academic organizations of the state in the initial phase. The philosophy, concept and the approach for the same has been included in a WHITE PAPERPDF file that opens in a new window(275 KB) developed by this office. The Capacity Building Cells [CBCs] support the activities of this office in the interest of Capacity Building of Students, initially. Each CBC endeavours in its own way towards Capacity Building of the students. However, each cell also conducts a structured CRASH WORKSHOP to train the Biotech (to be) Graduates, as per the Guidelines/BLUE-PRINT PDF file that opens in a new window(282 KB) developed by this office.

GSBTM – Capacity Building Cells

In the initial phase, six Capacity Building Cells have been selected at the colleges listed below:

  • N. V. Patel College of Pure and Applied Sciences, Vallabh Vidyanagar
  • Sheth Motilal Nyalchand Science College, Patan
  • P. S. Science & H. D. Patel Arts College, Kadi
  • St. Xavier’s College, Ahmedabad
  • Shri Ramkrishna Institute of Computer Education & Applied Sciences, Surat
  • Shree M. & N. Virani Science College, Rajkot

Glimpse of the training

The Crash Workshops are an intensive period of training with some of the best available resource persons delivering more than 60 formal lecture sessions, with ample informal sessions, psychological orientation sessions, mock tests, etc. Aspirants should be ready for an intensive period of learning spanning more than 12 hours a day. There are NO FEES for the CRASH WORKSHOPS; however, to ensure that the enrolled aspirants maintain an attendance of over 90%, a refundable deposit from each aspirant has been decided.

The Trainees

Students in the penultimate and final year of graduation of any of the Biotech or allied subjects (like Microbiology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Bioinformatics, Environmental Sciences/technology, Molecular Biology, Human Genetics, etc.) apply for training at the CRASH WORKSHOP. A limited number of outstanding cases of non-freshers may also be entertained by each cell. Each cell is expected to train a prescribed number of candidates, with a good representation from ALL of the other colleges in the nearby area.

Modus operandii for Selection of trainees

The identified cells invite applications from students studying in various colleges falling within their area. The identified cells follow a transparent un-biased mechanism for selection of candidates for the Crash Workshop(s). Most often the selection of the candidates is on the basis of their merit at a State-wide Screening Test. Alternatively, the BT-CBC facing difficulties in executing the State-wide Screening Test may request nomination of candidates from the Head of Departments/Coordinators/Sr. Faculty of the Biotech or related programmes in the colleges falling within their area..
