14th NGS Training on Genomics and Metagenomics

Monday, 29th July to Thursday, 1st August

Genomics Home

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


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. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, with its highthroughput 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. Metagenomics aids in analyses of unculturable microbes and understand the correlation the microbial genomes with the environment. Computational tools are evolving with speed and accuracy to address problems of genome and transcriptome. Hand-holding 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
