Recent advancements in DNA sequencing have made enormous contributions to understanding the biology of life forms. Reduced cost and increased speed of DNA sequencing have led to rapid growth of genomics. Functional significance of genomic elements (genes, RNA, proteins, small molecules and phenotype) are still being unravelled in each organism. India being a country having the richest biodiversity hotspots in the world, there is huge scope to decode genomes, understand and harness the biodiversity heritage through functional genomics. Transdisciplinary genomics has made phenomenal discoveries in the biological sciences since last decade. To foster transdisciplinary dialogues in functional genomics, TDU is organizing a two day “National Symposium on Future of Functional Genomics” by networking with scientists across India.

Dates: October 13th-14th, 2017.


  • Brainstorming the future of functional genomics
  • Evolving national network projects
  • Training and capitalizing human resources in India to carry out big data research


  • Advances in functional genomic technologies
  • Applications of functional genomics in medicine, agriculture and environment
  • Big data and bioinformatics
