Joint Workshop by IBAB & BioTecNika

Hands-on-Workshop on Whole Genome Next Generation Sequencing: Call for Applications

IBAB in Collaboration with BioTecNika is organizing a hands-on-workshop on whole genome sequencing from the 10th to 12th July 2019. The workshop combines experimental and computational aspects of next-generation sequencing (NGS). The focus is on (1) the preparation of libraries from genomic DNA, with critical discussions and troubleshooting sessions, quantification and quality control of the libraries prepared and (2) current methods, tools, and pipelines to analyze the genome sequencing data.

Target Participants This course is aimed at researchers, technicians who wish to employ genomic approaches in their work. Ph.D. students/postdoctoral fellows/JRFs/faculty involved in relevant research are eligible to apply. The course is beneficial to students pursuing B.Sc./ B.Tech./ M.Sc./ M.Tech. in Biotechnology/Life Sciences/ Microbiology/ Biosciences/ Bioinformatics who wish to employ genomic approaches in their work. Teachers from undergraduate and postgraduate teaching institutions and research institutes across the state of Karnataka are also encouraged to apply to the workshop.

The participants are encouraged to bring their laptops which may be useful for downstream processing and visualization of the data.

Course Fee: Rs 9900/- (Inclusive of GST)

Accommodation will be provided in the IBAB Hostel.

Application Procedure:
Interested participants may apply to with their resume and a one-paragraph write-up on how this workshop will be useful to their research.
