Find your PhD- Best websites and quotes

PhD is the garden of the questions. If you keep your mind and heart open, you will able to find all the answers to all the mysteries. Although a PhD student search for the universe, just to find his own. His soul always search for wisdom rather than the publications. Please bring in the magic back in PhD. Here is my contribution to help my fellow colleagues to search there PhD and lab partners.

Best European Countries where PhD are well paid

Europe is the best of the continent to pursue your Doctorate studies. Along with nice infrastructure and facilities in the education system, Europe is known for its vibrant cultures, lifestyle, food and the ease of travelling from one country to another. I am writing this blog as an International student for the international students who wish to pursue PhD in Europe.  There are certain problems if our country does not have any diplomatic relations with European Union then, you will have to go through administrative work if you are moving around in Europe for official work. But I will come to this later. Lets talk about the expectation of an International student coming from Asia, south America or North America. I have hardly seen any students pursuing doctorate studies in Europe but there are lot of Asians and South Americans travelling to Europe for Higher studies. Maximum number of students expect a good stipend as you are giving commitment to pursue PhD for 3-4 years which is important to keep in your mind before you make any big decision. Everyone is rushing to start PhD in Europe or North America before analyzing the complete situation in detail. Why, I am pressing this issue is because most of the PhD stipend/Scholarship remains constant for the 3-4 years in many countries of Europe.  For ex: If you start your PhD in 2018 which gives a stipend/monthly salary of 1000 euros/month, your salary will remain the same until 2021.

The pattern and style of PhD has completely changes significantly demanding the industrial results instead of real research. The world load in terms of administrative, scientific publications and results has increased where as the time period of PhD has also reduced to 3 years. Considering the economy, lifestyle and other related things, it will be wise for all the PhD students to choose a PhD that funds high salary along with other benefits.  Here is the list of countries in Europe that pay the high salaries for PhD graduates along with other benefits including insurance and pension plans.

Indian Boy got 2.3 million EUR Funding

An Indian boy got 2.3 million Euros funding from the Government of Italy to create some innovative Enzymes. He is one of the most calm and talented Human being I have never met and his passion is to create innovation projects in Science.

Me- Hey,I know you personally but can you tell my readers little bit about yourself. Like you background and what are you doing now?

Roh- Well basically I’m from Himachal Pradesh, my father is a retired army officer, mother is a house wife and have a younger sister. In 2016 I completed my Bachelor from Amity university, India in Biotechnology. After that I got admission in Masters in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling in University of Groningen, Netherlands which was funded by Erasmus Mundus. But after completing my 1st semester, I realized that I am not enjoying this course as this course was totally different from my bachelor studies. So, I discussed this issue with my director and she helped me to get another Erasmus Mundus scholarship in Italy for 1st Chemical Nano Engineering Program. This program is launched first time in Europe in collaboration with university of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy , Aix Marseille University, France and Wroclaw University, Poland.

Wow this amazing that your director helped you out with everything. And you got selected for both the scholarships.

Me. Where are you located these days?

Roh. In my hometown, Nurpur, Himachal Pradesh

Great

Me- I read about your grant from the Government of Italy? How did you started this project?

Roh- I started working on this project a year ago before I start my education consultancy company for European education.I am trying to collaborate with universities in Europe for my education consultancy in India and other countries around the globe who wish to pursue there studies in Europe. I got information regarding this funding program by Italy government to launch startup visa for innovation project. I confirmed this with my director Maria of university of Rome tor Vergata, Italy. And I thought that it is a golden opportunity for me to develop something innovative. Then I talked with my mentor in India with whom I have worked in one of my summer internship. He accepted my offer to mentor this project.

So we decided to produce enzyme technology and production unit in India. It took us ` year to develop the basic protocol of the project. We got the approval of our grant on 21st March,2018. And we were ready to launch this startup in Italy.

Me. What kind of enzymes are you going to develop in your industry? Where will your industry be located?

Roh- In the first phase of our project we will develop enzymes by traditional methods by using fermentation menthol. We will manufacture enzymes like Alfa amylase, protease, cellulase, xylanase. All these enzymes are used in different industries of textile, food, detergent, paper, pharmaceutical industries. Our head office is located in Milan and production unit in India. We have already developed the market for 1st phase production and In the second phase, we will be testing our new technology to enhance the overall process of enzyme manufacturing which I cannot disclose right now. As it is still in the process.

Me- What Kind of raw material will you be using to create these enzymes?

Roh- Agriculture waste. We will be using rice husk, wheat brawn and sugarcane waste which are complete waste to the farmers and they usually burn them. So, we are creating values out of the waste. So instead of burning the waste, we will be buying this from farmers which will also give the additional income to the farmers for there waste.

Me- Why are you so interested in this project?

Roh- It will benefit all kind of stakeholders as we are creating something out of the waste. It is estimated that this US enzyme industry will be worth 6.3 billion dollars by 2020. So I thought, it will be a big industry in India too. Although, many companies are already working on it but we still need innovative techniques to build better quality products for many industries.

Me- What are your expectation from your start up in terms of money or Jobs creation?

Roh- I am expecting that this industry will generate 150-200 million euros by 2020. It will create atleast 150-200 jobs.

Me-Have you started employing people?

Roh- Yes we started to hire People for our work

Me- How many people will you be employing?

Roh- We already have team in Italy to manage operation in Europe and We need 20 people in India to start the intial phase of the project.

Me- Can you give some advice to future students?

Roh- I just want to tell student never run for marks and try to do something different. Scores are not everything. Always try to build a network and meet new people. It will give you a chance in your life to make your life better.

Me- Do you think I can upload your public information in my blog so that people can contact you for suggestions.

Roh- Yes ofcourse. And if any one has any innovative idea which they want to turn into reality, I can help them out with the complete process

Are you sure about yourself?

Do you think that you are 100% Indian, Spanish, French, English or Irish. There is a big chance that you are wrong and  I am going to tell you something that will blow your mind. There is a DNA test that can tell you your exact origin and reunite you with cousins all around the world.  I have never taken it but a lot of people have reviewed this product and are quite surprised to know that they 20% British, 70% spanish and 10% German and so on.

Just imagine, A simple DNA test can tell you the complete ethnicity. My heritage is an online platform developed in Israel that creates the new family based on family trees with global historical records and other features.  This is the simplest test to tell you the real truth of your identity. You will have to order the kit, swipe your cheek with a swap and send the sample to the laboratory. They will analyse your DNA, covert it into digital form and compare it with database to find your close and distance cousins.  It will create new dots for you to join and find your new ancestors. According to there database, the Indian population have ethnicity – 73% South Asian, 10% English, 9% Scandavian, 9% Northwestern European and 6% West Asian.

So do you want to know your real Ethnicity?

DNA-Reuters-L

This test will completely change the meaning of your passport, rules of immigration and citizenship. Also, there will be some theories saying that this will give the big nations more power to control global genetics of the world which can make them easy to manipulate the DNA and control the global health. There are always pros and cons of everything just like social media. It depends on how you use it and how you tackle it.

Want to cut your fat?

Are you tired of being fat? Are you tired of spending thousands of dollars in your diet and fitness programs.

Until now we have been doing research on rats by feeding them different types of diet varying the composition of fats, sugar and carbohydrates and checking the impact on overall metabolism of rats by focusing on one or more genes. But with the changing  sequencing technology and super computing power, the progress will be faster to fight obesity. I am sure a big part of community won`t agree with me but I am just sharing the possible real changes that will happen. This community is the one that says that social media is killing the generation but what happened? Technology is winning and it will always win as it exposes people.

Things are changing and big change is already coming in future. It does not matter if you like it or not. You have been using green tea, fat loss program and everyone knows about it. Now, the time to edit some genes in humans is very near. Are you ready to change your genetic structure? Also, we cannot ignore the fact that the rate of obesity or number of unhealthy population is at the maximum the earth has ever seen. So, its the perfect time to introduce the world with the technology that will edit your GENE or GENES related to your belly fat. Isn`t?

Also, I won`t say that consistency and hard work cannot give you the desired fitness results but only if you are consistent and hard working.

What if you are not consistent and istead you are lazy, not at all determined and needs the quick and easy fix? There will be million of people around the world like this. There is a solution in near future for you guys. And this blog is dedicated to the beautiful lazy people who wants to sit and see the cutting of fat from there belly.

One of the major gene that is linked with your obesity is FTO which is around 456820 bp.  Now I am sure most of you will ask what is 456820bp. Bp is base pair and our human DNA is made up of 3 billion base pairs. Now you will ask what is a base pair? There are 4 base pair i.e., A,G,C and T and our human DNA of 3 billion base pair is made up of only 4 letters [A,G,T,C] in different combinations. Each living being on this earth- humans, dogs, plants. insects, cats everyone has these base pairs but all of them have different number of base pairs.

So, the overall bad weight [fat] will vary according to the types of FTO you have in your DNA i.e., it has been noted that if have two variants, you are expected to have 3kgs more as compared to normal human being. In addition to that, some researchers have found certain regions in your DNA that are linked with obesity and these certain regions contain many gene that have different role in management of overall weight. Well, i am not sure if this will require to edit or omit the complete 456820 genes from your DNA.

 

What do you think if you could edit these genes completely and never get fat?

Will you do it? 

 

 

Want to get blue eyes?

I am sure, a lot of boys and girls want blue eyes. Isn`t?

Can genetic engineering and DNA sequencing technology make it happen? I believe that it`s gonna come in near future.

I was doing some research on the gene of BLUE eyes and I found out that the gene name called HERC2 is responsible to have blue color eyes in Human beings.  It has been found out that people with blue eyes usually have a mutation in HERC2 that leads to change in the function of another gene called OCA2 which ultimately leads to change in the color of eyes.

But guys, HERC2 is a big gene of 15000-17000 bp. Now I am sure most of you will ask what is 15000 bp. Bp is base pair and our human DNA is made up of 3 billion base pairs. Now you will ask what is a base pair? There are 4 base pair i.e., A,G,C and T and our human DNA of 3 billion base pair is made up of only 4 letters [A,G,T,C] in different combinations. Each living being on this earth- humans, dogs, plants. insects, cats everyone has these base pairs but all of them have different number of base pairs.

So, out of these 3 billion letters, 15000 base pairs makes a gene called HERC2 which is responsible for many small functions in human body. But the interesting one is the change in color of eyes. And geographically, this gene and humans with blue eyes are most prominent in North and East Europe and some parts of North Africa and Americas.

I am not saying that this is going to easy but the cosmetic industry already have there eyes on this gene and they are going to come up with new strategy to get you the blue eyes using DNA sequencing and DNA editing technology.

Just remember a part of HERC2 is the gene of BLUE EYES. It`s coming……
