mRNA, with critical discussions and troubleshooting sessions, and quantification and quality
control of the libraries prepared and (2) RNA seq data analysis using ‘R’ tools.
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 Dr. Sreekanth Reddy at [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 30th November. Selected candidates will be notified by 3rd December to pay the registration fee. The registration closes on 12th December.
