Hands-on workshop on
"Genomics, Ensembl Genome Browser and Biomart"
October 03-11, 2022

     Ensembl Genome Browser                     Nextgenhelper                     European Bioinformatics Institute         

We are organising this workshop of high quality, for the participants interested in the genomics, bioinformatics, and genome annotations. In this workshop, different trainers from European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) will provide the hands-on training sessions of 'Ensembl Genome browser, and 'BioMart'. This workshop will be equally useful for the researchers working with any domain of life (e.g. microbes, animals, fungus, and plants).  


Who can participate: Students (B.Sc./B.Tech/M.Sc./M.Tech), Research Fellows, PhD Student, Faculty, Scientists, and Company Personals. 

Workshop Schedule

Date: October 03-11, 2022
