Biotech Bioinfo Workshop

5-Days Hands-on Workshop on Molecular Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, Pune, India

Venue: ICSCCB, R.H. 2, Ujwal Regalia, Near Prabhavee Tech Park Building, Baner Road, Pune – 411045, India

We have planned a series of five days basic/beginners workshops with practical hands-on training on the topics from recombinant DNA technology, PCR and bioinformatics. The biology and bioinformatics contents are interwoven in such a manner that it would help a molecular biologist to find solutions to real time problems in lab and a bioinformatician to understand the laboratory aspects.

Prof. Dr. Sheo Mohan Singh
MSc(UK), PhD(Germany), PDF(USA,UK)
Director, ICSCCB, Pune, India
