“Basics to Advanced Bioinformatics, Genomics,
and Data Sciences"

October 13 - 31, 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 teach you the basics of 'Python', 'R', and data analysis with both the modules. In addition to this, we will also provide you the filtering and analysis of datasets generated by Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies (e.g. RNA-Seq data, Whole Genome Sequencing and Whole Exome Sequencing). We will also provide Basics of Network Biology and use of Cytoscape tool for Network analysis, and a very informative training session on MD SimulationsWe will cover basics to advanced aspects of all the topics mentioned.   


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