REtopia 2017: "21st Century Energy Renaissance through Renewables"

Venue : TERI University
Date : 22-23 September 2017


The department of Energy and Environment of TERI University is organizing the 7th edition of REtopia, the annual technical symposium, at the TERI University campus on 22nd and 23rd of September, 2017 around the theme "21st Century Energy Renaissance through Renewables". REtopia was started by students from M.Tech. Renewable Energy Engineering and Management (REEM) of the Department of Energy and Environment at TERI University in the year 2011 as an annual technical conclave. The goal of this event is to bring together academicians, industry leaders, and visionaries on one platform to share the best practices and explore the extended role that clean energy can play in the power industry and commercial sectors in our country. The Chief Guest of REtopia 2017 is Mr. Junaid Kamal Ahmad, India Country Director, South Asia, World Bank.

REtopia is one of the prestigious fests of the university portraying successfully a variety of renewable energy opportunities, challenges and possible remedies, motivated by a variety of factors, to address the various components of RE integration into the energy system. It provides a platform for experts from various prospects, students and aspirants of RE, developers and researchers, industrialists, stake holders, policy makers and academicians.

Venue : TERI University
Date : 28-29 September 2017


TERI University Biotechnology Society is organizing an event on 28th-29th September 2017. The theme of the event is "TRENDS IN NANOBIOTECHNOLOGY". The objective of TERI University Biotechnology Society (TUBS) is to highlight the important role played by biotechnology in the modern society, and its relevance to the contemporary imperative of sustainable development. Biotikos 2017 is being organized by the students and faculty Department of Plant Biotechnology, TERI University, to discuss and debate the promises and challenges of Nanobiotechnology. The proposed event is aimed at enlightening science undergraduates/post-graduate students and teachers about the upcoming areas in Nanobiotechnology and its applications in different scientific fields. Nanobiotechnology is growing as an independent discipline and it is adding a new dimension for the growth of biotechnology Perhaps, nanobiotechnology is most revolutionary and multidisciplinary field of modern science and has great impact on society through various applications in medical, imaging and sensor development. Nanobiotechnology, with the help of medical and biotechnological tools, has been used to diagnose, image and deliver the drug to target cells. In multifunctional therapeutics, it offers a platform to expedite its specific targeting to tumor tissue and delivery of an effective treatment, with negligible harm to healthy cells. Nano-integrated sensors are being developed to identify the harmful microbes like Salmonella, and other contaminants on food products before packaging and intake. Nano scale bio molecules such as protein, nucleic acid and biopolymers regulate and control biological systems with incredible precision. This event includes a series of lectures, panel discussion, quiz and poster presentation across various domains of Nanobiotechnology such as nanomaterial, nanobioscience, nanomedicine, agriculture, environmental nanobiotechnology, nanobiosensors, etc.

TU-DBT lecture series: Guest lecture by Dr. Peer Mittl, University of Zurich

Venue : Conference Hall, TERI University
Start Date : 4 September 2017
End Date : 4 September 2017


Speaker: Dr. Peer Mittl, Senior Scientist at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Zurich is delivering a talk on "Engineered Solenoid Proteins: tools for Structural- and Synthetic Biology" as part of our TU-DBT lecture series.


Solenoid proteins possess modular architectures comprising several repetitions of similar structural units. They are very abundant in natural organisms, since they are involved in many signal transduction pathways where they recognize one- and two-dimensional epitopes. The modular architecture supports this functionality, because the size and curvature of the paratope is easily adjusted by inserting or deleting entire structural units. These structural features are advantageous in vivo and can also be utilized for directed evolution experiments in vitro. Ankyrin and Armadillo repeats are two distinct structural units comprising two and three alpha helices that bind two and one-dimensional epitopes, respectively. Both types of repeats can be engineered in order to meet challenges in biochemical research.

Designed Ankyrin repeat proteins (DARPin) are 2D-binders that can be selected from combinatorial libraries to bind almost any target protein with high affinity. Additional advantageous properties, such as high expression yield and temperature stability, make them attractive for the development of crystallization aids, to overcome limitations in crystallogenesis for structural biology, molecular clamps and scaffold proteins. Using a stiff linker several DARPin domains can be combined into a polyvalent peptide chain that can recruit several targets into a stable complex.

Designed Armadillo repeat proteins (dArmRP) are 1D-binders that recognize flexible polypeptides. Models of dArmRPs suggest that dArmRPs and target peptides are anti-parallel and each Armadillo repeat recognizes two adjacent amino acids from the target. We utilize this unique architecture for the development a modular peptide recognition system, where the affinity of the binder can be easily adjusted to meet the requirements of the application.

In summary, dArmPRs and DARPins are two examples of engineered solenoid proteins with high potential for applications in basic research, clinical diagnostics and disease treatment.
