How has this solid impact on Nation?
It’s well-known facts that the science and technology is the essence of a development of Country. This is reflected by the status of science and technology in developed countries like United States, India. China and much more. The development of S & T of any country is possible when it’s government along with normal citizens becomes aware of it.
Therefore, we, BSN, going to organize two days program celebrating world DNA DAY 2017 in Nepal on 24th and 25th Apri, 2017 at NAST (Nepal Academy of Science and Technology), Khumatar, Lalitpur, Nepal with an objectives of making Nepalese to aware about the life sciences and it impacts on the development of country.
The single person, society can’t achieve these patriotic objectives, therefore would like to request hearty support by disseminating the information among your circle.
