Summer Training Program

Practical Training in Microbiology

Theoretical knowledge in Microbiology is not sufficient to practice Microbiology. One must be proficient in handling microbiological techniques. There is no use being good in performing tests with kits supplied by companies. One becomes “kittologist” rather than Microbiologist. By becoming a kittologist one becomes only a repeater-becomes a blind performer of steps. One can not device one’s own things and find solution to a problem

Plenty of problems arise in every microbiological situations where new microbes spring up surprises every now and then in human and animal health, industrial and other situations. Individuals must handle all types of microbes and identify them. Practical training is provided by eminent and experienced persons in the field with necessary background theory. Personal attention will be provided.

Students from Tamilnadu Universities can get the benefit.
