3-days Hands-on Workshop on “Whole Exome Sequence Analysis”
November 25-27, 2022

The Bio-IT Centre at IBAB is organizing a three-days Hands-on Workshop on “Whole Exome Sequence Analysis” during November 25-27, 2022. This workshop will provide hands-on training in single nucleotide variant and copy number variant analysis, visualizing and representing the mutations.

Target Audience:

The course is aimed at students, researchers, and technicians who wish to employ NGS sequencing approaches in their work but may not have sufficient training in/awareness of library preparation, a critical step in data analysis. Ph.D. scholars/postdoctoral fellows/JRFs/faculty involved in pure NGS analysis are encouraged to apply. The course will also benefit those pursuing M.Sc./ M.Tech. in Biotechnology/Life Sciences/Microbiology/Biosciences who may be interested in transitioning to molecular biology/ bioinformatics-focused opportunities in academia or industry. Teachers from undergraduate and postgraduate teaching institutions and research institutes across Karnataka are highly encouraged to apply. Please note that minimal eligibility is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree.

Only twenty-five candidates will be selected for this workshop on a first-come basis.

Registration Fee (inclusive of GST): These fees are only for those working in India. If you are working abroad, please email for payment details.
