World DNA Day Conference

May 2 – 3, 2019, University Of Rajshahi

Theme of the Conference

National Conference

The conference will concentrate on the new and evolving roles of DNA and genome research for agricultural and health development in Bangladesh which require multidisciplinary efforts. The conference is aimed to highlights on –


  1. Interdisciplinary research on DNA and genome for agriculture and health.
  2. Bring to the forefront real problems in DNA and genomics research for the improvement of agri-varieties/drugs/vaccines or the development of new drugs/vaccines for any diseases.
  3. Create an opportunity for young researchers to gain an understanding of the importance and potential impact of DNA and genome research for solving the complex biological problems.
  4. Increase the participation of researchers and practitioners interested in the application informatics to the field of biological science for understanding biological processes and systems to modernize agricultural, health and environmental research.
