Free short term training course on computer application in Genomics/ Proteomics, India

02-03 March, 2012
Bioinformatics Centre
Department of Agricultural Biotechnology
CSK HP Agricultural University
Palampur- 176 062 (HP)
Department of Biotechnology(DBT) Government of India, New Delhi
Genomes of several plants and organisms have been sequenced, thereby resulting in the accumulation of large amount of sequence data in databases. The ‘omics’ technologies such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and phenomics, etc., are all resulting in the generation of large data sets. The outcome from all these technologies is central to the improvement of genomes of economically important crops, microbes and animals. The processing of enormous biological information generated by these novel technologies requires fast and high capacity computational and storage media. Retrieval of sequence information and analysis need sophisticated programmes which can be distributed using computer networks and world wide web. The two-days training course has been designed to provide hands-on-training on computational biology, biological databases and their role in genome annotation, in silico gene mining, gene prediction and proteomics etc.
The course will be useful to research scholars, students, and persons in their early careers in academic/research institutions and also for people engaged in the area of bioinformatics.
1. Role of bioinformatics in genomics and proteomics
2. Introduction to biological databases, sequence retrieval and analysis
3. Concept and application of machine learning techniques in bioinformatics
4. Tools and techniques for bio-molecule prediction
The two-days workshop will include theory lectures and practical demonstrations by experts in the related fields.
Course Fee: Rs. Nil
Total No. of Seats: 20 (On first-come-first-serve basis)
Last Date for receipt of Application: February 29, 2012

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...
