5-Day Hands-on Workshop on Molecular Biotechnology and Bioinformatics

A 5-day workshop with hands-on training involving the following topics from molecular biology and bioinformatics. The workshop aims to equip its participants with the right kind of knowledge and tools required to practice 21st century biology.

The biology and bioinformatics contents are interwoven in such a manner that would help a molecular biologist to find solutions to real time problems in a lab and a bioinformatician to understand the laboratory aspects of bioinformatics.
