Bhuban Mohan Das Lecture organised

By The Assam Tribune

GUWAHATI, Jan 22 - The Department of Anthropology, Cotton University organised the Ninth Prof Bhuban Mohan Das Memorial Lecture today in the university�s conference hall.

Prof Sarthak Sengupta, Head, Department of Anthropology, Dibrugarh University, delivered a talk on �Globin Gene Flow in Northeast India and Beyond�. It is an issue that has much relevance on the genetic wellbeing of many communities of the north-eastern region and in the words of Prof Sengupta, �an area on which research was initiated by Professor Bhuban Mohan Das himself.

Haemoglobinopathies and thalassemia are widespread and many of them are common in malaria areas around the world. In North East India research work in this less-trodden area was initiated by Prof G Flatz and Prof BM Das more than four decades back.

Prof Sengupta highlighted the magnitude of haemoglobinopathies and thalassemia in North East India and identification of population groups at risk.

Extensive prevalence studies among the target sections of the indigenous populations seem to be the most fruitful strategy to prevent and control these genetic disorders and to have diagnostic and prognostic implication for medical evaluation and genetic counselling.
