BDG LifeSciences (OPC) Pvt. Ltd. is a Bioinformatics company and is conducting Training, Novel Research Projects, Workshops & Online Courses since 2010. To date, we have successfully trained hundreds of participants who were not only students but scientists, faculties, professor, company executives, etc from India as well as other countries. As we believe in a different way of learning which is HANDS-ON PRACTICAL SESSIONS our workshops are unique because participants perform on their own computer/laptop on software/servers, so it is practical application of technology which is the main reason of our success where we have conducted 100+ workshops around the world on latest technologies of Bioinformatics especially Drug Discovery & Designing, MD Simulations, NGS Data Analysis, and Gene & Genome Editing by CRISPR/Cas9. We are the first to launch a workshop and training course (Online & Onsite) on CRISPR/Cas 9 in May 2017 and since then did it successfully several times.

Till now we have conducted some great workshops in India as well as other countries to view the pictures of our previous events click here-1 and click here-2 To view the listing of upcoming events kindly click here and our previous workshops can be viewed here.

Advancement of technologies like genome sequencing and metagenomics has given the scientists to study the microbes along with their function resulting in microbiome research. Innovation & creativity is an integral part of the BDG Lifesciences and we always launch new programs on the newest topics. We have launched a 2-day Technical Certificate Training MetaGenomics Analysis in 16S rRNA & Antibiotic resistance detection | Amplicon Sequencing & Nanopore Data Analysis in Bangkok, Thailand in which we will teach about the Metagenomics analysis of 16S rRNA and Nanopore data. 

This will be our 4th event in Bangkok and will be an extensive hands-on training program in which participants will run the processes of MetaGenomics analysis on their own computer systems with complete learning of technology. The course will be of great help to students/ researchers/ faculty/ scientists in learning this latest technology to analyze the Sequencing Data.


  • What is the Microbiome?
  • How microbiota benefit the body
  • The role of probiotics
  • Can diet affect one’s microbiota?
  • Future areas of research
  • The human microbiome: an organ in its own right
  • Microbiome composition
  • The human microbiome and disease
  • Future potential of microbiota manipulation for the treatment of disease


EXPERIMENT 1- on 16S rRNA data where sequences were only the rRNA or ribosomal DNA of organisms generated through HTS (high throughput sequencing) reads to identify species in microbial or environmental DNA samples.

AIM OF THE EXPERIMENT- The aim of this experiment is to determine the micro-organisms from which the sequences in our sample are coming from, this is called taxonomic assignation. We try to assign sequences to taxons and then classify or extract the taxonomy in our sample.

  • File Optimization- Loading of data & optimizing it according to our experiment.
  • Quality Control- Check sequencing quality
  • Sequence Alignment- Grouping/Alignment of reads
  • Extraction of Taxonomic Information- Operational Taxonomic Units (OTUs)- Clustering Sequences
  • Visualization- Examine diversity of species/taxa present within a single sample, Comparison of species/taxa diversity between two samples & Taxonomic Diversity- How many species are in a sample? What are the differences in species between samples?

EXPERIMENT 2- on Nanopore MinION sequencer data

AIM OF THE EXPERIMENT- The aim of this experiment is the reconstruction of full plasmid sequences and determining the presence of any antimicrobial resistance genes.

  • Obtaining and preparing data
  • Quality Control- NanoPlot to explore data
  • De-novo Assembly
  • Species and plasmids- Prediction of plasmid sequences and classes
  • Antibiotic Resistance- Scan genome contigs for antimicrobial resistance genes


Student: Bachelor, Masters, PhD, MBBS, MD students as well as Faculty and Professors from Microbiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Immunology, Medicine, Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Biomedical Technology, Genetics, Bioinformatics, Plant Science and Life Sciences.

Professionals: Resident Doctors, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Medicine and Pharmaceutical scientists from industry, academia, and regulatory agencies. Hands-on exercises will be performed individually using software tools on your own laptops. (no prior experience required).

T & C

  • Kindly make English as your default language of the computer system.
  • While buying the ticket choose the right category of registration in which you fall. If you register under the wrong category then your registration will be invalid and NO REFUND WILL BE MADE IN THIS CASE. This is your mistake and the company is not responsible for it.
  • Once registration is done it is NON-REFUNDABLE/NON TRANSFERABLE.
  • Once you register we will send you Welcome email 5 days prior to the event. This email will have all detail of files, software, etc.
  • You need to follow the instructions in the welcome email and prepare your system accordingly.
  • If you do not turn up for the training session on any day then NO CERTIFICATE WILL BE AWARDED TO YOU.
  • Timings are to be strictly followed- If you are late for more than 15 minutes from the start then you will not be allowed to enter on that particular day.
  • The certificate will be given only when you attend all sessions and of the category in which you have registered.
  • Please bring your PHOTO ID of College/ Department/ Institute/ University/ Company for verification.
  • Please bring the PRINT OUT of the ticket which you have got after registration. We need a HARD COPY. Without PHOTO ID and PRINT OUT of ticket entry will not be given.
  • Our workshops depend on participants who register hence if we do not achieve our break-even to conduct the event we cancel the event. In this case, the amount of the registration will be refunded and not the payment gateway charges
  • In case the date of the event changes and you do not want to join on those dates and ask for refund, then only the ticket amount will be refunded and not the payment gateway charges. As this amount is charged by the payment gateway and is not collected by BDG Lifesciences hence that amount will not be refunded.
  • The venue of the event can be changed depending on the decision of management of BDG Lifesciences (OPC) Private Limited.
