Hands-on-Workshop on RNA-seq Library Preparation and Data Analysis:
5th-7th February 2020

IBAB is organizing a three-day hands-on workshop on RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) using Illumina Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) approach from the 5h to 7th February 2020. The workshop combines both experimental and computational aspects of NGS. The focus is on (1) the preparation of libraries from poly-A mRNA, with critical discussions on experimental design and quality control checks, and (2) RNA-seq data analysis using ‘R’ tools.

Target Participants:
The course is aimed at researchers, technicians who wish to employ genomic approaches in their work. Ph.D. scholars/postdoctoral fellows/JRFs/faculty involved in relevant research are eligible to apply. The course is beneficial to also those pursuing B.Sc./ B.Tech./ M.Sc./ M.Tech. in Biotechnology/Life Sciences/ Microbiology/ Biosciences/ Bioinformatics who wish to apply NGS technology. Teachers from undergraduate and postgraduate teaching institutions and research institutes across the state of Karnataka are also encouraged to apply to the workshop.

Registration Procedure:
Interested participants may apply by sending email to sequencing@ibab.ac.in with their resume and a one paragraph write-up on how this workshop will be useful to their research. Applications should reach by 15th January.  Selected candidates will be notified by 17th January to pay the registration fee. The registration closes on 24th January.

Course Fee (inclusive of GST):
Bachelors/Masters/PhD students should pay Rs. 4000/-, Post doctoral fellows and Lecturers should pay Rs. 6000/-, Industrial applicants should pay Rs.10,000/-
