Hands-on-Workshop on NGS data analysis – Whole Genome Sequencing and meta-transcriptome
IBAB is organising a hands-on workshop on the analysis of sequencing data from Whole Genome Sequencing and meta-transcriptome experiments from the 10th to the 12th of July 2018.
The primary focus of the workshop is to give an in-depth understanding of the current methods in the analysis of data from Next Generation Sequencing and the pipelines and tools used in the analysis of Whole Genome Sequencing and meta-transcritome data.
The workshop has been planned to provide the participants, a complete hands-on experience on the tools used to analyse the data. Invited lectures from experts in the field of genomics will be a part of the workshop.
This course is aimed at faculty, post-doctoral fellows, researchers and technicians who wish to employ Whole Genome Sequencing or meta-transcriptome NGS methods in their work. Ph.D. students/Post Doctoral Fellows/JRFs/SRFs/faculty involved in relevant research are eligible to apply. The participants are encouraged to bring their laptops which may be useful for downstream processing and visualization of the data.
|Faculty/Post-Doctoral Fellows||Rs. 5,000|
The course fees is payable by a D.D. in favour of Institute of Bioinformatics and Applied Biotechnology payable at Bangalore or through bank transfer to
