IIT Kharagpur | National Symposium & Workshop On Omics' Application In Health And Environment, Apply ASAP

Overview :

Indian Institute Of Technology, Kharagpur is inviting candidates to apply for the National Symposium And Workshop On Omics' Application In Health And Environment.

This symposium is being organized to discuss and disseminate the current state of the knowledge on diverse omics approaches (genomics, transcriptomics, metagenomics, metabolomics, etc.), and their application in exploring human and environmental microbiology. The application of Machine Learning in omics-based analysis will also be discussed. The hands-on (workshop) sessions planned will provide the participant exposure to current bioinformatics tools used for analyzing omics data. This will enable the participants to gain overall experience to handle high throughput data and obtain valuable insights. With this symposium, we also aim to bridge the gap between research and industry.
