DUBAI | 2-day Technical & Hands-on Workshop in NGS Data Analysis (Whole Genome & Exome Sequencing)

Oct 14, 2019 10:00 AM - Oct 15, 2019 05:00 AM

Executive Lounge, Business Centre Level, 30, The H Hotel – Office Tower, #1 Sheikh Zayed Road



BDG LifeSciences (OPC) Pvt. Ltd. formerly known as BioDiscovery Group, India is a CRO having expertise in Bioinformatics and is conducting Training, Novel Research Projects, Workshops & Online Courses in technologies of Bioinformatics. Started in 2010 we have been conducting Workshops since 2012 and till 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.

We are glad to announce our 4th event in DUBAI and THIRD on Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis- Whole Genome & Exome Sequencing. It will be an extensive 2-day Technical & Hands-on program for which participants have to bring their own laptop(Windows/Mac/Linux) so they can use it for running the processes on their own computer systems- HANDS-ON with complete learning of Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis. The course will be of great help to students/ researchers/ faculty/ scientists in learning this latest science and technology.
