Bioinformatics Technician

The aim of this programme is to familiarize students about the usage of computational biology techniques for genomics and proteomics analysis. With the ease and availability of next generation sequencing technology large sequence data sets can be generated in a short span of time. However the analysis of this data set needs some expertise in the area of bioinformatics. The candidates will have hands on training for handling large data sets and its analysis. Deep analysis and management of large datasets will help in understanding the biological problem in details. Creating and managing database will also provide easy access to other researchers. This programme will benefit students and researchers working in the area of genomics and proteomics. This training programme is aimed at students and researchers working in this area or planning to start work in this area.
