Training and Workshop

We offer an integrative, multidisciplinary training programme that encompasses biology using computational and quantitative methods. Students learn to apply the tools of statistics, mathematics, computer science and informatics to biological problems. Training programmes are meant for Bachelors or Masters Students. Our training programmes include:

Advanced specialized training

The Center for Bioinformatics, Computational and Systems Biology under the aegis of Pathfinder Research and Training Foundation organizes training programmes in association with LSSSDC (Life Sciences Sector Skill Development Council), New Delhi to train student as a Bioinformatics Associate/Analyst. It is very specialized training in which students will make responsible for assisting in product development, carrying out research related activities along with its reporting and documentation.
