This course was designed to address the shortage of man power with skills in using in-silico tools to analyze genomic data and produce new drug targets.

The objective of this course is to train professionals in the analysis of genomics and proteomics data. The course covers topics related to molecular biology, genome analysis, functional and structural genomics, recombinant DNA technology, and DNA & protein sequence data analysis.

The course includes several experiments in wet-lab and computational methodologies.

Duration: 6 weeks (240hrs @ 40hrs/week)

Methodology: Instructor Led Training
