Hands-on-Workshop on Transcriptome Profiling by Next Generation Sequencing: 28th-30th August 2019: Call for Applications
IBAB is organizing a 3-day hands-on-workshop on transcriptome profiling by Next
Generation Sequencing (NGS) from the 28th to 30th August 2019. The workshop combines
both experimental and computational aspects of NGS. The focus is on (1) the preparation of libraries from poly-A mRNA, with critical discussions and troubleshooting sessions, and
quantification and quality control of the libraries prepared and (2) current methods, tools, and pipelines to analyze the RNA sequencing data.
The course is aimed at researchers, technicians who wish to employ genomic approaches in
their work. Ph.D. scholars/postdoctoral fellows/JRFs/faculty involved in relevant research are eligible to apply. The course is beneficial to also those pursuing B.Sc./ B.Tech./ M.Sc./
M.Tech. in Biotechnology/Life Sciences/ Microbiology/ Biosciences/ Bioinformatics who
wish to apply NGS technology. Teachers from undergraduate and postgraduate
teaching institutions and research institutes across the state of Karnataka are also encouraged to apply to the workshop.
Interested participants may apply to: [email protected] with their resume and a one paragraph write-up on how this workshop will be useful to their research. Applications
should reach by 13th August. Selected candidates will be notified by 14th August to pay the registration fee. The registration closes on 20th August.
Course Fee (inclusive of GST):
Bachelors/Masters/PhD students should pay Rs. 4000/-, Post doctoral fellows and Lecturers
should pay Rs. 6000/-, Industrial applicants should pay Rs.10,000/-
