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. 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. Over half of genome content is composed of jumping genes or Mobile genetic elements or transposable elements, which repetitive in nature and pose greater challenges for eukaryotic genome annotation. The expression of genome called “Transcriptome or RNA world” is complex and composed of varied transcripts per gene. Computational tools are evolving with speed and accuracy to address problems of genomes and transcriptomes. Hand-holding of participants and mentoring by genome experts throughout this training will create an ecosystem for experiential learning in real time.
