10 - 12 January 2014
There have been extensive advancements in structural bioinformatics during the last few years, especially after the sequencing of the human genome. In the post-genomic era, the rapid increase in the number of sequence-known proteins witnessed the availability of possible "drug targets". A large number of methods and tools have been developed which provide the means to exploit the wealth of new informatics in drug discovery approaches.
This workshop will showcase the current developments in the area of Structural Bioinformatics. The objective of the program is to provide participants with an insight into the various aspects of in-silico protein modeling and drug design techniques through guided practical training. The workshop will feature morning lectures, demonstrations with evening hands-on session in Bioinformatics lab.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The participants of the course may be students, research scholars, faculty and industry personnel with background in Life Sciences and/or Information Technology. The workshop is selfcontained and does not assume any special knowledge of the subject.
Besides BISR faculty, eminent guest speakers from renowned Bioinformatics Centres of India will deliver lectures and conduct demonstration on various aspects on Bioinformatics.
