About Seminar - workshop

The National Seminar - workshop on "Next Genomic Era NGS: A Clinical Approach" hopes to bring an intensive idea and practice of NGS to the student community. This seminar - workshop is blended with eminent speakers and organizations of India focusing on the importance of NGS and its relevance to Bioinformatics. Growing interest on NGS in clinical research is the recent trend to address various diseases, preventive oncology, origin of human genome, transcriptome, exome and microbial study. Research in Gene therapy is the long awaited. A dream to treat the disease precisely, is brought close by NGS. Experimental and analytical part of NGS is related with Bioinformatics in one way or another. This seminar - workshop will introduce various tools and software in relation with NGS to researchers, faculty and students from various universities and different colleges, leading to ultimate benefit for the researchers from Bioinformatics and Molecular Biology fields.
