Internship on 
“Linux, Python, Next Generation Sequencing data analysis, Machine Learning, and Network Biology"

November 19 - December 06, 2021

We will start this workshop by answering the most important question of the researchers/students e.g. How I can start learning Bioinformatics and and data analysis with Linux system ? How to shift from windows system to linux system ? Further, we will also provide you the training of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies data handling, and analysis (e.g. RNA-Seq data analysis, Whole Genome Assembly and annotations). Further, basics to advanced training of 'Python', and 'R' will also be provided. Basics of Machine Learning (ML) and application of ML in drug discovery, and demo of two tools with R, is also the part of this training. We will also provide Basics of Network Biology and use of Cytoscape tool for Network analysis. 


Who can participate: Students (B.Sc./B.Tech/M.Sc./M.Tech), Research Fellows (Ph.D. students), Researchers, Faculty, Scientists, and Company Personals.
