7th Training on Next Generation Sequencing and Analysis (Genome, RNASeq and MetaGenome)
Jointly organized by:
The University of Trans-disciplinary Health Sciences & Technology (TDU)
Bengaluru Genomics Centre (BGC)
Rapid advancement of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Technologies has revolutionized the biological sciences. It has proven the better understanding of Genetics, functional genomics (genome, transcriptome, metagenome, etc.,) of an organisms. The emergence of NGS platforms imposes increasing demands on statistical methods and bioinformatics tools for the analysis and the management of the huge amounts of data generated by these technologies. This training is being jointly organized by TDU and BGC; it provides lectures, practical hands on session of NGS sequencing and sequence data analyses using bioinformatics tools.
- To train and capitalize the human resources for carrying out Next Generation Sequencing and Big- Data Analyses.
- To pave the way into huge data-sets and tackle it through the bioinformatics skills.
