August 24 - 27, 2013

Institute of Bioinformatics (IOB) is a premier centre for Genomics, Proteomics and Computational Biology. IOB is carrying out cutting-edge research in genomics and transcriptomics. We have identified candidate genes for several inherited genetic disorders and cancers by integrating NextGen Sequencing (NGS) data from whole genome, exome, transcriptome sequencing and microarray-based methods. IOB has also established a state-of-the-art proteomics facility to discover and validate candidate biomarkers in human diseases ranging from various neurological disorders and infectious diseases to cancers.

Workshop focus

This workshop will focus on introducing high-throughput methods for extensive understanding of biological systems in the context of disease and various cancers. Hands-on sessions and lecture series are designed for participants to acquire essential skills for the analysis and interpretation of diverse datasets of human. Participants will be made familiar with methods and tools for human genome analysis including alignment, annotation and clinical implication of the data. Emphasis on methods for quality control, pre-processing and analysis by open-source tools with statistical implications using R packages and multi-omic analysis using Agilent’s GeneSpring platform.
