16th Training on “Culturomics, Metagenomics and Bioinformatics”

November 11, 2019 to November 14, 2019

Genomics Home

Jointly organized by:
The University of Trans-disciplinary Health Sciences & Technology (TDU)
Bengaluru Genomics Centre (BGC)


  • Training capitalizing human resources to carry out NGS and Metagenome analysis.
  • Carry out high throughput research using genomic tools to foster trans-disciplinary dialogues in functional genomics.

Training Theme

  • Metagenomics analysis will help us to understand the total microbiome diversity and their abundance in the natural habitat without culturing them
  • As more than 95% microbes cannot be cultured in artificial media there is a need to develop natural/host media to support their growth as well as maintain their biological activity after sub-culturing
  • Culturomics is an approach allowing extensive assessment of the microbial composition by high-throughput culture and uses studies based on growth characters in artificial set of conditions
  • This training focus on culturomics and metagenomics using latest NGS technologies


11th November 2019 to 14th November 2019
