Online Certificate Course in Industrial Bioinformatics
We offer an integrative, multidisciplinary training program that encompasses biology using computational and quantitative methods. This program focuses on various databases, tools, and techniques that are central to computational biology. We would cover “Basic Bioinformatics” and “Drug Design” in detail. In the last two modules, we cover data analysis using “Biopython” and “Machine Learning” application on biological problems. This course is designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students. However, it would be equally beneficial for PhDs and post-doctoral candidates. This course would provide extensive hands-on and sufficient lectures from the expertise of different fields. An assignment would be provided to participants for better understanding. Instructors for this course are from industries and academia with rich experience in bioinformatics.
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:
Understand : Fundamentals of Bioinformatics
Learn : Necessary bio-computational skills, data analytics strategies, established workflows, biological concepts to interpret the results and professional depiction of data.
Apply : Fundamental concepts and analytics strategies, while working on real-time projects based on research problems from diverse backgrounds like agriculture, healthcare, environmental sciences etc.
Duration of training : 45 Days (57 Hours)
Commencement of registration : 01st November, 2020
Commencement of programme : 08 January, 2021
Eligibility criteria : B. Tech / B. Sc / M. Sc / M. Tech / Ph. D
Domain : Industrial Bioinformatics
Certification : Pathfinder Research and Training Foundation
Fee : Rs.10000/- including GST
The entire training will be online and shall have following prerequisites:
- Participants must have access to the laptop/desktop with stable internet connection.
- Participants must possess a google account (firstname.lastname@example.org).
