29th of August 2016 – Muhammad Adnan Ashraf, University of Agriculture Faisalabad

[Admin] The contributor’s week was truncated due to content which was deemed to be problematic. It was agreed that it was in the best interests of all parties that he not continue.
Adnan A MalikGreetings readers!  I have been interacting biologists/ scientists at @biotweeps for quite a period. I found the forum very interesting and teased amusingly Dr. Anthony to not including someone from Asia particularly from Pakistan as curator at @biotweeps. To my surprise, he welcomed me instantly from the core of heart. Any biology reader has something worth sharing, feel free to schedule your week.
I am PhD candidate with Microbiology major at Institute of Microbiology, University of Agriculture Faisalabad, Pakistan. I have done with six semesters and hope to complete doctorate in a year or so. Although subjects in my studies were not narrowed down to any sub-discipline, I chose working on modification of bacterial amylase enzyme to improve industry oriented characteristics in it. To a bit detail, I am working on engineering amylase to make it thermostable via site-directed mutagenesis. Nowadays I am PhD scholar and Research Fellow at the same institute.
I have a diverse areas of interest based on different kinda majors and projects I have been through. Apart from the interest in enzyme engineering, I am basically a veterinary graduate having Vet Medical Council license. I have enjoyed a lot managing and treating farm animals and pets. In my masters, I worked on USDA funded project based on biocontrol of Aedes mosquito species. Being engaged to veterinary science and microbiology, I am interested in One Health and zoonosis as well. As Teaching Assistant, I have taught many courses at graduate as well as undergraduate level. In my leisure, rather when I am not ‘sciencing’, I am equally interested in cricket, bodyweight training, exercise physiology, movies and documentaries.
In my week as curator at @biotweeps, I ll be tweeting on veterinary science, microbiology, one health, biological control and enzyme engineering interspersed with exercise physiology. I ll briefly share routine life of graduate student and researcher at my institute to @biotweeps. Feel free to interact me at @adnan_a_malik.
