Bioinformatics Short Time Courses

Here are some bioinformatics courses, These are geared towards:

- Scientists, so they can think like a programmer and solve bottlenecks in data-based Biology
- Computer programmers, so they know how to solve bioinformatics problems for scientists
- Bioinformaticians, so they can advance their skills in newer application areas

Some of these courses include scripting and database management with Linux, Perl, R, Matlab and MySql, while others include learning to use software for analyzing data from Microarray, NGS, Metabolomics and Proteomics platforms. A course on High Performance Computing and Primer Design is also offered. A detailed roster of scheduled courses is available at:

Additionally, through, an instructor-led program in practical bioinformatics is being offered. The goal here is to provide attendees a broad overview of the bioinformatics landscape, while giving them hands-on experience with tools used in various application areas of bioinformatics such as NGS, Microarrays, Metabolomics and Proteomics.

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...
