March 12, 2018 to March 16, 2018

Genomics Home | Genomics Symposium – 1 (2017)

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

Program Co-ordinators

Training Theme

  • Genomics is a recent technological revolution in life science that transformed our understanding of life’s genome landscape
  • The purpose of this training workshop is to get a deeper understanding in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology with a special focus on whole genome sequencing and analysis.
  • To teach the fundamentals of NGS workflow from sample prep to whole genome sequencing to analysis to manuscript writing and patent application
  • Globally huge demand and opportunities in genomics research and industry


  • High quality Training and capitalizing human resources to carry out Next Generation Sequencing and Big-Data Analysis
  • Carryout high-end research on genomic and functional genomics to solve the big problems


March 12-16, 2018.

Target Audience

Students and Faculty/Scientists from Academia and Industry from Life Sciences, Biotechnology, Genetics, Computer Science, Genomics, Medicine, Agriculture, Environment, Computer Science and other disciplines.
