ABSTRACT

North-Western Himalayan states are treasure trove of Biological diversity which is an important source of various compounds, genes and proteins of industrial and pharmaceutical importance. Thus biodiversity generates economic revenue through bio-prospecting which links biodiversity with industries. However conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity is critically important not only to ensure the continuous supply of food, fibre, fodder but also to maintain ecological balance and promote industrial growth in Himalayan states. Advances in Nanotechnology, Biotechnology and Bioinformatics are of immense importance in preservation and bio-prospecting of important molecules by harnessing biodiversity so as to promote industrial and agricultural growth of these states. During the brainstorming session, participants deliberated on the applications of nanotechnology, biotechnology and information technology to manage the challenges of food and nutritional security in these states and to promote the growth on front of agriculture, biomedical and industrial sector. This report summarizes the nanotechnology, biotechnology and bioinformatics as integrated discipline of frontier science and technologies “Nano-Bio-Information Technology” for the holistic development of hill states of India with very useful recommendations.
