Mini - Project

This comprises a short term projects, to learn the techniques based on its application in a chosen topic/area. It will also give a clear idea about the full strength of the project. Students may also work on the new Sample/Protocol if interested, which may leads to the paper/poster presentation in various conferences. CytoGene faculty will always insist & help to the students to present their work in conferences.

CytoGene will also allow to students to continue the mini project work in to the academic or extensive research project based on the student’s interest.

Those students’s who has a good command on the techniques would be very much benefitted with this program.

Why Mini Project ?

Students who have the basic knowledge of tools and techniques of biotechnology/life science lab and experience of handling the Instruments can take the next step from basic to advance level of research. This would help you to take the first step from being a fresher towards being a researcher. Mini project will also help you to establish a base for upcoming dissertation work in the final year as the our mini project program have the same format as that of the major project /dissertation.

Why  to choose Mini Project over module training ?

Those students who have learned the techniques earlier will get module which might have some techniques they already know. To avoid this overlapping, students can select this mini project program as it will allow them to learn how to conceptualize the idea into research. Here they could use all the skills/techniques already known to them into fruitful product. Thus giving them in-depth knowledge of the technique.

Why  to choose Mini Project over Major project ?

Students who do not have enough time to do a major project of 3,4 or 6 months but interested to learn the entire research methodology, may opt for mini project. It is the miniaturized version of long term projects. It includes all the steps involved in major project and that to in the same format. Only the time duration has been reduced to 45 days, keeping in mind the need of students.
