national conference

Mycological Society of India (MSI)

The Mycological Society of India (MSI) is a scientific body constituted for the advancement in the subject of mycology, the study of fungi including mushrooms, molds, truffles, yeasts, lichens, plant pathogens, and medically important Fungi. The Society was founded in January 1973 by a team of mycologists led by Professor C.V. Subramanian, Former Director, Centre for Advanced Studies in Botany, University of Madras, Chennai, India, with a view to bring together mycologists of the country and with the broad objectives of promoting development of mycology in India in all the prospects and in the widest perspective. Currently, there are more than 400 members, counting professional and upcoming mycologists with varied interests, namely, taxonomy, ecology, pathology, genetics, physiology, biotechnology and molecular biology.

Organizers

ANNAMALAI UNIVERSITY
The Annamalai University is a unitary and residential University, which offers postgraduate and professional programmes in multiple disciplines, apart from carrying out many research programmes. Within the span of 84 years, Annamalai University has grown swiftly with 49 Departments of Study under 10 Faculties and over 3240 members on its teaching staff. Annamalai Nagar is a busy and self contained university town, east of Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu the abode of Lord Nataraja. Chidambaram is well connected by train and road from Chennai with a distance of around 230 Kms. It is situated at 60 Kms from Pondicherry and Auroville, the Universal city dedicated to human unity based on the vision of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. The botanically important Pichavaram mangrove forests are situated very close to Chidambaram. The University campus which includes colleges, hostels and playgrounds, sprawls over an area of about one thousand acres represents the sole value of the university. The University is among the topmost institutions of India in academic and research contributions.

Faculty Of Marine Sciences

CENtrE OF ADVANCED STUDY IN MARINE BIOLOGY
The Centre of Advanced Study (CAS) in Marine Biology, a reputed Marine Institute in India is actively engaged in research and teaching in Marine Sciences. Its ideal location and easy accessibility to different biotopes such as estuary, mangrove, backwaters and coastal waters has helped in progress of various facets of Marine Science, Marine Technology and Oceanography. Though the centre was established as a field laboratory for the Department of Zoology in the year 1957 by the eminent scientist (Late) Prof. R.V. Seshaiya, it attained the status of a separate department in 1961. In 1963, UGC recognized this department as the Centre of Advanced Study in Marine Biology for its excellent research contributions. In recognition of the academic accomplishments achieved, the University elevated this Centre as a separate FACULTY from the academic year 2010-2011.

The centre offers 7 post graduate courses and 5 research degrees apart from 3 post - graduate diploma courses through distance education.

Post Graduate Courses offered are as follows:

  • Two years M.Sc., course in Marine Biology & Oceanography
  • Two years M.Sc., course in Coastal Aquaculture
  • Two years M.Sc., course in Marine Biotechnology
  • Two years M.Sc., course in Marine Food Technology
  • Two years M.Sc., course in Marine Microbiology
  • Two years M.Sc., course in Marine Pharmacology
  • Five years M.Sc., integrated course in Ocean Science and Technology
  • Two years M.Sc., course in Marine Biology and Oceanography and coastal Aquaculture
  • PG Diploma in Marine Microbial Technology, Marine Pollution Management and Coastal Aquaculture and Management (off - campus)

Research degrees:

  • One year M.Phil degree course in Coastal Aquaculture, Marine Biology and Oceanography, Marine Biotechnology, Marine Food technology and Marine Microbiology
  • Ph.D. research programmes in Marine Biology and Oceanography, Marine Biotechnology, Marine Microbiology, Marine Food technology and Coastal Aquaculture

Till date the centre had produced 1,725 postgraduates and 432 students have been awarded with M.Phil. degree, 424 with Doctoral degree and 3 D.Sc., degree. The centre has successfully completed 150 research projects with potent outputs and has 65 ongoing research projects funded by various national and international agencies. The Centre's faculty members and students have visited various international and national institutions for training and research rather than merely participating in seminars and symposia. The centre has also organized a number of seminars, symposia and workshops at both national and international levels that enlightens the knowledge of students in various aspects.
An excellent display and reference collections of authentically identified specimens of the flora and fauna components of this area are maintained in the museum and there is also a classified catalogue consisting the species of marine invertebrates and vertebrates.

Scope And Focal Point

Fungi, the evolutionarily sophisticated forms of microorganisms, are abundantly present worldwide; most of them are unnoticeable because of their small size and cryptic lifestyles. Once the fruiting occurs, they may become noticeable either as mushrooms or molds. Fungi are heterotrophs in nature. Most of them are saprophytes, some are parasites and a few are mutalistic in nature. Only 50% of fungi are characterized till now where their counts exceed up to 1.5 million in natural habitats. It might be due to the reason that only around 5-10% of fungi can be cultured under in vitro conditions.

Fungi are not only beautiful but play a significant role in the daily life of human beings besides their utilization in industry, agriculture, medicine, food industry, textiles, bioremediation, biodegradation, natural cycle, biofertilizers and in many other ways. Fungal biotechnology has become an integral part of the human welfare. Terrestrial fungi are used in the production of various extracellular enzymes, organic acids, antibiotics and anti-cholesterolemic statins. They have been used as expression hosts as well as a source of new genes. With modern molecular genetic tools, fungi have been used as "cell factories" for heterologous protein production and human proteins. Fungal biotechnology or 'mycotechnology' has advanced considerably in the last five decades.

This conference will cover all the aspects of mycology especially in the arenas of taxonomy, biochemistry, pathology, ecology and beneficial roles of fungi. Special emphasis is laid on the biology and control of human and plant pathogens. An attempt has been taken to merge various aspects of fundamental and applied mycology. Hope this will act as an excellent platform for the budding researchers to have a discussion with the renowned and eminent scientists to share their novel ideas, innovations and research findings.
