Workshop on NextGen Sequencing-based Whole Genome Sequencing, Assembly and Annotation

April 16-18, 2018, Yenepoya (Deemed to be University), Mangalore, India


Center for Systems Biology and Molecular Medicine (CSBMM) is a premier center for genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and computational biology. The scientists at CSBMM are carrying out cutting edge research by employing NextGen sequencing (NGS) -based genomics and transcriptomics to understand and enable biomedical discoveries intended towards translation in the areas of research, performance of livestock and plant biology. CSBMM has also established a state-of-the-art proteomics facility to discover and validate candidate biomarkers in human diseases ranging from infectious diseases and cancers. As a part of the academic program at Yenepoya (Deemed to be University), scientists at CSBMM in collaboration with Bangalore Genomics Centre will share their expertise in NextGen sequencing-based genomic data analysis with young researchers in India, through this workshop. The organising team of this workshop has successfully conducted over 40 national workshops on NextGen sequencing-based genomic and transcriptomic analysis. Several faculty and students from reputed research Institutes and Universities from India have participated in these workshops.


Workshop Objectives:

As a part of this 3-day intensive training we will introduce, demonstrate and provide theoretical underpinnings of NextGen sequencing-based genomics. Each participant will gain hands-on training to assess and apply quality control, to perform alignment of WGS data against reference database followed by subsequent variant indentification and functional annotation.
