One Day Symposium
Cross-talks in Omics
August 9, 2017
About the Centre
Centre for Bioinformatics at Pondicherry University is a national facility funded at various stages by the Department of Biotechnology (DBT),
Department of Information Technology and University Grants Commission. Current faculty strength is eleven and their research interest is in all
fields of Bioinformatics which ranges from Structural Biology to Data-Mining. The Centre offers M.Sc. Bioinformatics (UGC Innovative Program)
and M.Tech. Computational Biology (supported by DBT) and Ph.D. in Bioinformatics. The Centre has received grants under Centre of Excellence
for Teaching and Research in Bioinformatics by the Department of Information Technology, Govt. of India. Students pursuing
M.Tech. Computational Biology are offered student fellowship (Rs.8000/- pm) given by DBT. The program is a part of the network program with
Anna University for which PU is the nodal center. The Centre has a web-site (www.bicpu.edu.in) and it access to several online e-journals and e.books.
A round-the-clock computational facility is available to all scholars and students of the center. It is also equipped with modern instruments to
carry out wet-lab molecular biology research work. The Centre has conducted more than 27 Seminars / Workshops in recent years. Over 130 publications
in reputed national and international journals resulted from the research work of faculty members of the center.
The theme of the Symposium "Cross-talks in Omics" reflects research interests of majority of the faculty of the center.
About the Symposium
The One-day National level Symposium sponsored by UGC-SAP, DBT, and Pondicherry University will focus on "Cross-talks in Omics",
which involves diversified topics in bioinformatics like genomics and proteomics. Experts in various fields will deliver lectures.
The symposium will be very useful to the faculty and students interested in Genomics, Proteomics and its extension to Synthetic Biology,
which are of immense scope in Life Sciences.
Who can attend
Scientist, Teachers, Faculty and research scholars working in various areas of life Sciences who intend to apply Omics concepts in their research
or wish to contribute to the development of this field itself..
