5 days Hands-on Workshop on Molecular Biotechnology and Bioinformatics -2013

International Center for Stem Cells, Cancer and Biotechnology - Pune
5 days Hands-on Workshop on Molecular Biotechnology and Bioinformatics
Description:- ICSCCB have planned a series of five days basic workshops with practical hands-on training on the topics from molecular biology 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 of bioinformatics.
Workshop Topics:
All topics below will be covered in each workshop by practical hands-on training:
1. Recombinant DNA Technology & Genetic Engineering:
  • Plasmid DNA Isolation followed by gel electrophoresis
  • Restriction Digestion followed by gel electrophoresis
  • Ligation followed by gel electrophoresis
  • Preparation of Competent Cells
  • Transformation and plating on LBA
  • DNA Gel Electrophoresis
  • Gel Extraction
  • PCR followed by gel electrophoresis
2. Bioinformatics part for the above:
  • Bioinformatics of DNA databases
  • Sequence Analysis: Pairwise sequence alignment, Multiple sequence alignment, Pattern search
  • Designing of PCR primers
  • In-silico cloning
  • Searching for homologous and paralogous sequences
3. Genomics Data Visualization:
  • Browsing and comparing human and mouse genomic data with the help of NCBI Genome viewer and UCSC Genome browser.
UG/PG/PhD students, faculty, scientists as well as people working in industry in the field of Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Life Sciences, Medical Sciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chemical Sciences and related subject areas.
Registration Fees (food & accommodation is not included): Rs. 6000/- (US$ 120 for International candidates).
