Bioinformatics Workshop at BISR
BIRLA INSTITUTE OF SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
Announces
One Week Workshop
on
"Systems Genomics in the age of Next Generation Sequencing"
26 - 30 November 2018

ABOUT ACCOMMODATION

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

The workshop is aimed at PhD fellows and Postdocs interested in next generation sequencing analysis and systems integration approaches for ascertaining non-coding RNAS.

This workshop focuses on the current trends on “Systems Genomic” approaches in EXOME Sequence Analysis along with other special insights into the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data approaches. The session will include the demonstration of various steps of data analysis including description of various sequence file formats followed by quality control and generation of variant calls.

For lab exercise, various open source software will be used. The workshop is self-contained and does not assume any special knowledge of computer programming or Bioinformatics.

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.

TEACHING FACULTY

Besides BISR faculty, eminent guest speakers from renowned Bioinformatics Centres of India will deliver lectures and conduct demonstration on various aspects on Bioinformatics.
