EMBO Courses, Workshops & Conference Series

Practical Course - European Molecular Biology Organization
Bioinformatics & Comparative Genome Analyses
27 June - 09 July, 2011 |Institute Pasteur | Paris | France

About the Practical Course

In the context of large-scale genome comparisons, the main objectives of this general purpose practical course are to strengthen capacities of students in Bioinformatics and data analyses skills by introducing reviews on advanced fundamental algorithms used in Bioinformatics and their applications in genome studies. 
Theoretical presentations will be followed by practical sessions, so that the same speaker will ensure links between theory and practice.
Reviews on each suggested topic will include their corresponding research perspectives, aiming at helping young scientists to gain insights into ongoing research in this domain. 
The course topics will include theoretical and practical aspects in: large-scale genome comparisons, evolutionary analyses, sequence and genome alignments, orthologs prediction and classification, Genome data visualization and statistical methods needed in Genome Wide Association Studies. 
Lectures related to recent hot topics in Bioinformatics and Genome studies will be programmed. 
Practical sessions in a Linux environment will involve Unix shell and Perl scripting. Students are expected to be familiar with this environment.

Who can attend the course:
The course is aimed at motivated Phd students and young researchers in academic Institutions with background in Mathematics, Statistics, computing or Biology and who are involved in Bioinformatics and Genome Analyses. The course is intense and active participation of the students is expected.

Life Science and Informatics

What is this?
is this a new industry?
or a old wine in a new bottle?

Well Life Sciences and Informatics can be anything form computational biology, all omes and omics, core bioinformatics to curation and literature mining, database creation, in the area of biology, chemistry , bio-chem space.

There are number of companies in India and bangalore is the forefront as a major bio-cluster with 20 to 30 companies in this sphere.

now how good are these companies doing?
how good are they in terms of the international markets and how profitable is their business?
what do they do?
their clients?

These are some interesting things that could be discussed in this blog page...
