Biotechnology Society of Nepal is an apolitical, non-government, non-profit organization motivated for promotion of Biotechnology in Nepal and beyond. The establishment of society is an endeavor for development of Biotechnology by promotion and dissemination of knowledge about this cutting edge technology. The society will act as an active platform for interchange of academic ideas about the research and theoretical perspective of biotechnology. The motive of the organization is to incorporate all national and cross-national academic institutions, research institutions, companies and individuals sharing interest in development of biotechnology in Nepal and beyond.
In current scenario, science and technology has advanced enormously and biotechnology is also part and parcel of it. Human have expanded their understanding of biosphere by journeying in space, and exploring the bottom of ocean. Now, the implication of the versatile inputs from all these immediate surroundings and beyond, is doubtlessly attributed to biotechnology. Biotechnology is utilizing the science of biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, information technology to develop products and services of great promise. Human has not only been able to manipulate organisms but also manipulate life and materials at the atomic level and modulate through bio-system engineering for benefit of human civilization.
Some breakthrough transitions manifested by biotechnological implications in near or distant future is inevitable, and we fear of missing the race if we forget to set off today.We believe, a plethora of works can and need to be done in the field of agricultural biotechnology, animal biotechnology, environmental biotechnology, industrial biotechnology and other allied fields of this cutting edge technological inventories. Even a dinty endeavor of garnering information from scattered researches within and outside the country, compiling them and disseminating them to general pubic, research workers, industrialists and related elite would help this technology to make a remarkable stride here.Our country is furbished with the affluent bio-resources; but still we are lagging far behind in its utilization. So, if we step sensibly and duly, there is no doubt that we can confirm prosperity for entire human civilization manifested by concerted but concrete effort, coordination, cooperation and partnership with national and international communities.
We basically focus in following programs.
