Training Course on Next Generation Genomic Technologies and Bioinformatics

The progress of science is punctuated by the advent of revolutionary technologies that provide new ways and scales to formulate scientific questions and advance knowledge. Genomics is one of the recent revolutions in science where the speed of genome sequencing reduced from decades to days and cost from crores to lakhs. The rapid explosion of genomics big data amalgamated with computer science to translate genetic code. Now the genomic science has moved from individual-centric to public (population) studies to address disease, thereby increasing the opportunities in genomics and bioinformatics. Lack of awareness on genomics and trained human resources are the major bottleneck for science development and industrial growth in India. We excel and hold legacy in transforming Students/Professors/Industry professionals into Bioinformaticians in a short period. This training program not only aims to make participants walk-through arena of NGS by genome experts but also create a genomic ecosystem for experiential learning in real time. The training course involves live-demo of sample loading in NGS instrument, obtaining results and data analysis.
