Abstract Background
Latest Events
Two weeks of Industrial training
in the area of 
"Python, R, MD Simulations, NGS data analysis & Genomics"

September 15- 30, 2021

In this internship, we will provide basics to advanced training of Python, R, and Small molecules Molecular docking, Interaction analysis, Network Biology and Genomics by the reputed faculty members around the globe. After this internship programme, participant will be perfectly ready to start Master's degree/PhD/Postdoctoral research in the area of Bioinformatics, Genomics and Big data analysis, and other related techniques like Molecular Docking, Interaction analysis and Network Biology, NGS data analysis, and whole genome assembly & annotations etc. This internship programme will provide a platform for faculty and researchers to improve their skills by updating themselves with latest methodologies in the area. We 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.
