Topic: Demystifying patenting

Highlights of the talk by Dr Iddya Karunasagar
The presentation included the following: Regulatory framework for patenting in India, eligibility for grant of patents, examples of product and process patents, Patent act Sections and rules that exclude patents and the process and steps involved in filing a patent application, tips for carrying out "prior art search", databases for publication search and patent search, provisional and complete applications and circumstances for filing these. The timeline for different steps in patenting was also informed. Further the steps in applying for international patents and the resources available from the World Intellectual Property organization was outlined. The talk focused on preparing research application for support from funding agencies, their priority areas, general format of research proposals, identification of specific research topics and research questions, formulating objectives and work plan, outlining timelines with the Gantt chart, budgeting with justifications, major points of consideration that evaluators and expert committees would look at etc. was presented at length.

Highlights of the talk by Dr Indrani Karunasagar
How to write a good publication for knowledge dissemination was highlighted and this should be an outcome of any piece of research carried out. Why should one publish? Is there something worth publishing? Does the work add to any existing knowledge? All of these questions should be the basis of writing a paper. Deciding where to publish, keeping in mind the journal coverage and to choose the right one, the readership, the length of time from submission to publication, together with indexation , the journal impact factor and citation score should be the priorities. The audience were informed as to what the editors and reviewers look for in a manuscript. Therefore, good science which is a well planned, well executed study, with originality in it is a quality requirement. All aspects of writing of the paper were detailed. Unlike a voluminous thesis which is like a kitchen sink, the paper should be a jewel that is churned out of the thesis. The lifecycle of a publication starting from submission through the publishing process was presented. Other aspects to be borne in mind such as antiplagiarism check, consent of all authors that are crucial to quality control, to have a large readership and citation were explained. English language that would permit it to be articulate, constructive, insightful with quality parameters for good science was the focus of the talk. On a final note, the participants were informed to live with rejection, revision and refinement of manuscripts sent for publication before they rejoice its acceptance.

Virtual workshop on bivalve mollusc sanitation

Date : 2020-12-09


Speaker: Dr Iddya Karunasagar
Event: Virtual regional workshop on bivalve sanitation, organized by Food and Agriculture organization (FAO) and Centre for Environment fisheries and aquaculture Science (CEFAS),
Topic: An Overview of the technical guidance for the development of the growing area aspects of bivalve mollusk sanitation programme
Dr Iddya Karunasagar delivered an invited talk at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) – Center for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) of United Kingdom Virtual Workshop on bivalve mollusc sanitation held during Dec 9-11, 2020. Dr Karunasagar spoke about the FAO/WHO Technical Guidance for the Development of Growing Areas Aspects of Bivalve Sanitation Programme. While at FAO, Dr Karunasagar played a key role in the development of this guidance document through a series of Expert Consultations and field trials in Africa. According to FAO estimates, global bivalve mollusc production in 2018 was 17.7 million tonnes valued at 34.6 billion US$ with international trade valued at 4.26 billion US$. However due to filter feeding nature of bivalve molluscs, they can accumulate pathogens and toxins from the environment. In many parts of the world, bivalves like oysters and mussels are consumed raw and therefore, from food safety perspective, it is very important that they are grown in very hygienic water. Though the international food safety standard setting body, Codex Alimentarius Commission has standards for live and raw bivalve molluscs and a Code of Practice for their production, often the details provided are not adequate for countries to start their own mollusc sanitation programme.

Dr Iddya Karunasagar was Technical Chair for the webinar on Aquatic Animal Health Management organized by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) Central Institute of Fisheries Education, Mumbai, which had international speakers – Dr Arun Dhar from Texas A&M University, US; Dr. C.V. Mohan from World Fish Center, Penang, Malaysia, Dr Sudheesh from Merck Animal Health, US, Dr. Soowannayan from Mahidol University, Thailand. Industry perspective was provided by Mr. Ravi Kumar of Vaishaki Biomarine, Andhra Pradesh. Following the talks, there was a panel discussion involving leading researchers in the field of aquatic animal health in India. In his opening remarks, Dr Iddya Karunasagar spoke about the previous cycles of emergence and spread of diseases in aquaculture systems and the need to adopt preventive measures, considering the complex interactions between the host, pathogen and environment. He explained about global spread of diseases, mainly through transboundary movement of live animals. Outlining the status of vaccines in aquaculture, he discussed approaches to manage diseases problems in invertebrate health management (eg shrimp culture). He highlighted the continuing problem of residues of antimicrobials and antibiotic resistance in products of aquaculture. The need for adopting one health approach in managing the problem associated with emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance was explained vividly. In his closing remarks, Dr Iddya Karunasagar urged the academia and industry to work together in overcoming the field level problems of aquatic animal health and suggested that they work together for their mitigation.
