To develop and polish a cadre of professional with specialized skills in Agriculture chemistry, Food Sciences and related Technologies, this training workshop is important to address various issues of Bio-safety/Bioterrorism and risk assessment in Agriculture and Food Research. The application of knowledge, techniques and equipment to avoid personal, laboratory and environmental exposure to potentially infectious agents which can easily manipulated under containment conditions. Likewise, pesticide residues, deteriorated food commodities, unhygienic processing, and adulteration are the key issue in the marketed food items. Micro organism and insects are also a big thread to achieve self sufficiency in food and feed. Intentionally adulteration is considered as bioterrorism and Knowledge of such biosafety and bioterrorism makes people aware of the associated risk.

The objective of this workshop is to confine biohazards and bioterrorism and all the major risk to reduce the possible exposure of the laboratory worker/researchers, to potentially infectious agents using advance techniques such as HPLC.
