Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (TANUVAS) is the first veterinary university in South East Asia to be established in 1989 at Chennai.Presently it has seven constituent veterinary colleges namely the Madras Veterinary College at Chennai (one of the oldest veterinary school in the country established in 1903), Veterinary College and Research Institutes (VCRI) at Namakkal, Tirunelveli, Orathanadu, Salem, Theni and Udumalpet. A College of Food and Dairy Technology at Koduvalli, Chennai; College of Poultry Production and Management, Hosur and a Post graduate Research Institute in Animal Sciences at Kattupakkam are also constituent units of the university. TANUVAS is an autonomous institution with a mandate to impart veterinary curriculum and undertake research that benefit stakeholders, farmers and rural people in co-operation with the Government departments. To disseminate the research findings and new technologies to the farming community, TANUVAS has several peripheral units in the form of 20 Veterinary University Training and Research Centers, 3 Farmers Training Centers (FTC), 4 Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVK) and an Agricultural Technology Information Centre (ATIC). The University has one Poultry Disease Diagnosis and Surveillance Laboratory (PDDSL) at Namakkal, one Avian Disease Diagnostic Laboratory (ADDL) at Thalaivasal, one Veterinary University Training and Diagnostic Centre (VUTDC) at Madurai and one Ethno Veterinary Herbal Research Centre for Poultry at Thanjavur. Applications are invited for admission to a 5 days hands on training Programme on “CRISPR/Cas based molecular diagnostic platforms” (03.07.2023 to 07.07.2023).

Eligibility criteria: Faculty, Scientist and Research Scholars
Only Indian nationals are eligible to apply a. M.Sc. / M.Tech Animal Biotechnology / Biotechnology / Bioinformatics / Microbiology / Genetic Engineering / Food technology / Biomedical Engineering or other relevant disciplines. b. M.V.Sc. Animal / Veterinary Biotechnology / Biochemistry / Genetics / Microbiology / Parasitology or other relevant disciplines.

Number of participants: 20
Selection criteria: Participants will be selected based on merit, experience and field of research Accommodation can be arranged on cost basis (subjected to availability) Overview of the Training CRISPR/Cas technology is an emerging genome editing technology with potential applications in functional genomics, transgenic animal technology and molecular diagnostics. CRISPR/Cas-based molecular diagnostic assay has been standardized in TRPVB and TRPVB has the necessary expertise, resource and logistics to conduct a training programme on CRISPR/Cas based diagnostic platform. To popularize this emerging technology among researchers and to create human resource in CRISPR/Cas technology, TRPVB is organizing a FIVE days training programme on “CRISPR/Cas based molecular diagnostic platform” from 03.07.2023 to 07.07.2023. The main objective of this training is to give hands on training to the participants on development and application of CRISPR/Cas based diagnostic assays.
