GENOMEDEN is a first of its kind interdisciplinary e-magazine primarily catering to dental genetics, medical genomics, biological and biomedical sciences. The main objective of this digital platform is to explore fascinating science connecting various arenas of healthcare, biological research, industry innovations and clinical applications under one roof.

Whenever we look around, there are so many things to see - animals, trees, sky, waterbodies, innumerable colors and much more! It seems that someone has planned this place named Earth and has beautifully arranged diversity in one place to give a treat to our eyes. If we go back to the history of life, perhaps we will find that life started as a single chemical molecule! With the passing time, there were changes - changes in the environment, changes in the molecule itself and more. This is what we named as Evolution. If you just close your eyes and start thinking, you will see that life started from the ocean, moved to land and now is trying to expand even beyond!. What I mean to say is that - “Life is universal”. And like you I also believe that this orchestration of diversity under the heading “Life” certainly has a disciplined mechanism of action.
So, if we want to understand about the Science of Life, we need to know various aspects of the mechanisms that it involves. For example, knowledge about cells and their structures or functions (cell biology) gives us insight of the morphology of living organisms, physical and chemical functions of tissues and organs (physiology), chemistry of living organisms (biochemistry), How various organisms interact with their environments (ecology), Distribution of living organisms (biogeography), Growth and development of plants and animals (developmental biology and embryology) Mechanisms inside organisms that protect them from disease and infection (immunology) and more.
Just for our better understanding, we have divided Science in to different branches such as natural sciences (e.g physics, chemistry , biology), social sciences (e.g. economics, sociology, psychology, etc.), formal sciences to understand abstract concepts (e.g. maths, computer science,logic,etc.) and applied sciences like medicine and engineering.Thus, it is a obvious fact that Science is not discrete but interdisciplinary.
With a vision to foster and a mission to spread awareness of the importance of interdisciplinary science, we initiated a first of its kind interdisciplinary online monthly e-magazine, GENOMEDEN in 2018.
Science ( Latin ” Scientia”) means “Knowledge”. GENOMEDEN focuses to organize explanations towards this systematic Knowledge about :
a) Dental Genetics
b) Saliva Diagnostics, Research and Therapeutics,
c) Healthcare Research and Innovations, and d) Life Style disorders.
We are a passionate and enthusiastic team welcoming articles, essays , and creative write-ups from students, interns, freshers, faculties, professionals and practitioners.
GENOMEDEN has different sections of information e.g.a) Expert's Speak b) Student's Corner c) Faculty's Corner d) Genomeden Quiz Contest e) Pen-A-Page Contest ( monthly essay competition) f) Free Webinar information e) Insights of an Industry-expert f) Course Reviews and more!
Check them to satiet your scienctific hunger!Let us join hands together and start this journey to develop right attitude (A)right skills (S), and gain right knowledge (K) and keep ASK-ing about Science and its interdisciplinary nature!
