This is the third release of CSIR-IGIB Pulse, March 2016 issue. What could be more timely than to oversee the release of this issue at the onset of spring - singing birds, pleasant breeze, warm yellow-white days and cool evenings. As our students and scientists move along in their course of research, charting into new areas, it my pleasure to release the March 2016 issue. This issue is turning out as an applications issue.
We are making strides into application areas such as discovering inhibitors of angiogenesis, delivering nucleic in the skin and building highly sensitive sensors for detection of heart attacks.
We have also had a good share of activities on the Republic Day, Science day and Life of Pi.
We have also started a series of skill development of students in advanced data analysis areas. The first is an NGS workshop held recently.
My best wishes to all of you in your research endeavours and 'sky is the limit' for all of us.
