National Symposium

Emerging Innovations in Plant Molecules for Achieving Food and Nutritional Security

Department of Plant Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, ACHF, NAU, Navsari and Division of Biochemistry, ICAR-IARI, New Delhi in association with Society for Plant Biochemistry and Biotechnology, IARI, Pusa Campus, New Delhi invites you for the National Symposium on ‘Emerging Innovations in Plant Molecules for Achieving Food and Nutritional Security (EIPMAFNS-2022). Food and nutritional security ensure better health of human being. In present scenario every day new diseases are coming up and only those persons can survive who take nutritionally superior and good quality food. The symposium aims to bring eminent scientists working in the frontier areas of Plant Biochemistry, Genomics, Genetics, Metabolomics, Stress Biology, Food Science and Nutritional Science together and provide a forum for sharing their immense experience to encourage and inspire young researchers for exploring the emerging areas of Plant Biochemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science. Looking to the pandemic situation of COVID-19 this symposium will be organized in hybrid mode.

Division of Biochemistry, ICAR-IARI, New Delhi

The Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI) is the country’s premier institution for agricultural research, education and extension. It has been serving the cause of science and society with distinction through basic research, generation of appropriate technologies and development of human resources. Recognizing the importance of biochemical studies in crop research, the Division of Biochemistry was created in 1966 as separate Division with major emphasis on plant biochemistry, molecular biology and food-nutrition. Since its inception, the Division has acquired the best research, teaching,  training facilities and take legitimate pride in being recognized as the only Centre of Advanced Faculty Training in Biochemistry in NARS by ICAR ever since 1995.
