Jawaharlal Nehru Tropical Botanic Garden and Research Institute
Biotechnology and Bioinformatics Division had organized a National Workshop on Ex-situ Conservation and Utilization of Medicinal Plants through Biotechnological interventions (8th to 21st 2017) with the financial support by SERB, DST Govt. of India and KSCSTE Govt. of Kerala in the Institute during 8 to 21 January 2017. Scientists, Teachers, Research Associate and Research Scholars (fifteen) from various Universities, Colleges and R&D organization within and outside Kerala State were the participants. The expert Scientists from CIMAP,IIHR, NIIST, RGCB, TNAU, Central University, Kerala and JNTBGRI were imparted knowledge to the participants through lecture classes and demonstrations on modern biotechnological tools on medicinal plants such as production of clonal plants, bioactive compounds through cell/root and genetically transformed root (hairy root) culture system and its scale up using bioreactor, cryopreservation, bio-prospecting using molecular and bioinformatics tools and technique. This Proceeding cum Manual of the Workshop was compiled with papers of the talk on various subjects pertaining to the ex situ conservation of medicinal plants including a three decade story on this line at JNTBGRI followed by the experimental protocols. Besides, the workshop coeverd a study tour to Shendurney Wildlife Sanctuary which harbours tropical moist-deciduous, semi-evergreen and evergreen forests in Southern Western Ghats.

Curtain Raiser Programmes of Kerala Science Congress
As a prelude to the 29th Kerala Science Congress to be held at Mar Thoma College, Thiruvalla, Pathanamthitta District on 28th-30th January 2017, KSCSTE had decided to organize ‘Curtain Raiser Programmes’ at various academic institutions across Kerala and JNTBGRI has been entrusted to co-ordinate the programme at the following 4 colleges selected from the southern region of the State. 1.University of Kerala, Karyavattom, Thiruvananthapuram2.Sree Narayana College, Kollam3.Sanatana Dharma College, Alappuzha4.Govt. College for Women, ThiruvananthapuramThe programme consisted of short presentations on KSCSTE and KSC by concerned KSCSTE/R&D institution scientist and presentation on general topic by invited speaker.
This is the second issue of the Journal of Traditional and Folk Practices (JTFP) jointly published by Jawaharlal Nehru Tropical Botanic Garden and Research Institute (JNTBGRI) and Patent Information Centre (PIC) functioning under the Kerala State Council for Science Technology and Environment (KSCSTE).

National Workshop on Next-Generation RNA Sequence Data AnalysisJawaharlal Nehru Tropical Botanic Garden and Research Institute is organizing a National Workshop on Next-Generation RNA Sequence Data Analysis to be held from 6-10 March 2017.The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) with a special focus on miRNA and mRNA data analysis using open bioinformatics tools. The participants will be trained using real data sets generated from plants, finding potential problems/errors during the analysis process and finally perform downstream analysis such as differential gene expression.For more details and registration, visit http://www.jntbgri.res.in/events/ngs2017Last date for Registration - 30 January 2017
Listen to the programme 'Sanchariyodoppam' broadcasted by Akashavani Ananthapuri FM on 16.07.2016 featuring JNTBGRI.
JNTBGRI is conducting a National Workshop on 'Ex-situ Conservation and Utilization of Medicinal Plants Through Biotechnological Interventions' from 8 to 21 January 2017.The workshop is sponsored by Science & Engineering Research Board (SERB), Government of India and Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment, Govt of Kerala.
The two week workshop will introduce the 15 participants to the topics on micropropagation, cryopreservation, cell cultures, genetic transformation with special emphasis on Agrobacterium rhizogenes, mediated hairy root culture for production of bioactive molecules, scale-up of hairy root culture using bioreactor, metabolic engineering, modern techniques on phytochemical profiling, and bio-prospecting of medicinal plants through molecular bioinformatics tools and techniques. Besides, the workshop will cover a study tour to Shendurney Wildlife Sanctuary which harbours tropical moist-deciduous, semi-evergreen and evergreen forests in Southern Western Ghats.
