16th Training on “Whole Genome and Metagenome Sequencing”

Monday, 20th January to Friday, 24th January

Genomics Home

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


  • Training capitalizing human resources to carry out NGS and Metagenome analysis.
  • Our strength high skilled resource persons hands on session for both molecular biology and bioinformatics
  • Carry out high throughput research using genomic tools to foster trans-disciplinary dialogues in functional genomics.

Training Theme

  • 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 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.
  • 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.


20th January 2020 to 24th January 2020
