11th Training Program – “Hands-on Training on Genomics and Transcriptomics”

Monday, 1st April to Saturday, 6th April

Genomics Home

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

Program Directors


The progress of science is punctuated by the advent of revolutionary technologies that provide new ways and scales to formulate scientific questions and advance knowledge. Nextgeneration sequencing (NGS) technology, with its high-throughput capacity and low cost, has developed rapidly in recent years and become an important genome-wide tool to discover new genes, genomes and its elements. The expression of genome called “Transcriptome or RNA world” is complex and composed of varied transcripts per gene. Computational tool are evolving with speed and accuracy to address problems of genomes and transcriptomes. Handholding of participants and mentoring by genome experts throughout this training will create an ecosystem for experiential learning in real time.

Training Theme

  • BIG-BANG of Genomic Science
  • Avenue and Opportunities in Genomics
  • Challenges in Bioinformatics & Data Science
  • Agglomeration of “Pure & Digital” Sciences

Our Achievements

  • Created “Genomics Ecosystem” in the country by conducting 10 training programs.
  • Trained > 200 Scientists (All streams of Biology, Engineering , Technology).
  • Achieved 100 % Literacy by the participants in Genomics and Bioinformatics
