Chromatography is a science of study that involves the separation of molecules in a mixture based on differences in their structure and /or composition. Separation and purific-ation of a component from a complex mixture is a necessary and important step in research labs, chemical and bioprocessing industries, and in production line. Chromatography is quite well suited for the characterization and analysis of biomolecules such as proteins, oligosaccharides and nucleic acids.
Mass spectrometry an analytical tool used to identify unknown compounds, quantify known compounds and elucidate molecular structure is increasingly being employed to elucidate the structure and size of biomolecues such as protein , nucleic acid. GC and LC are integrated with mass spectra to characterize the biomolecules
Hence the present Programme on the “Applications of chromatography and Mass spectrometry in Biotechnology” by the Department of Biotechnology will cover advancements of scientific knowledge from fundamentals of the chromatographic and mass spectrometric techniques to their state-of the-art application in separation, purification, product characterization and indentification, process monitoring, pharmaceutical formula-tion including discovery and release testing in the pharmaceutical industry, process scale-up, proteogenomic annotations, protein folding, high throughput analysis to screen cell lines, structural elucidation etc. pertaining to biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
This seminar is designed for all individuals (industrial, regulatory or academic) who use or would like to have practical information about the state-of-the-art use of mass spectrometry and chromatography in the various areas of biotechnology and pharmaceutical development, chemistry, physics, chemical engineering etc. The meeting will also provide researchers and scientists in the industry, faculty members and students, an opportunity to share their data and knowledge and learn from their colleagues. Apart from biomole-cules and biopharmaceuticals conventional pharmaceuticals and other molecules may also be discussed.
