DBT BET JRF 2018 Notification, Apply Online

Applications are invited from bonafide India citizens, residing in India for the award of “DBT-Junior Research Fellowship” (DBT JRF) for pursuing research in frontier areas of Biotechnology. The programme is being coordinated by Biotech Consortium India Limited (BCIL), New Delhi. The candidates will be selected through an Online Test “Biotechnology Eligibility Test (BET)”. Based on performance in BET, two categories of merit list will be prepared (Category I and Category). Candidates selected under category I (top 275) will be eligible to avail fellowship under the programme. These will be tenable in any university / Institute in India where the selected candidates can register for Ph.D programme. Candidates selected under Category II (next 100 in merit list) will be eligible to be appointed in any DBT sponsored project and avail fellowship from the project equivalent to NET/GATE, subject to selection through institutional selection process. There will be no binding on Principal investigators of DBT sponsored projects to select JRF/SRF for their project form category II list. Selection in category II will not entitle student for any fellowship from DBT-JRF programme.

Solid State Fermentation (SSF)
(Solid State Fermentation: Technology, Advantages and Disadvantages)

What is Solid State Fermentation (SSF)?

In Solid State Fermentation, also called Solid Substrate Fermentation or SSF, the fermentation substrate or media will be in the solid state. Here the microorganisms are grown on a solid substratum in the absence or near absence of free water. The moisture content of the substratum in SSF is usually maintained below 15%. The solid state fermentation is most commonly carried out for the production of fermented food products such as bread, fermented fish, meat, yogurt, cheese and pickles. The microbial fermentation increases the nutrient content and flavor of food products. It also increases the digestibility of foods. The cultivation of edible mushrooms on a suitable substratum is also a solid state fermentation process.

Substrates / Media in Solid State Fermentation

 

The substrates commonly used in SSF are usually very complex, heterogeneous and are insoluble in water. These substrates include cereals grains, wheat bran, lingo-cellulosic materials such as wood shavings, sawdust, molasses etc. In most of the cases, the substrate or the raw materials were undergone through a pre-treatment such as soaking, boiling in water, mechanical pre-treatment or chemical treatment. These pre-treatments increase the bioavailability of nutrients for the microbes to act on them.
