Bioinformatics Workshop Series (Basic to Advance).

INTRODUCTION
Bioinformatics is a hybrid science which involves the integration of computers, software tools, and databases in an effort to address biological questions. Bioinformatics approaches are often used for major initiatives that generate large data sets. Two important large-scale activities that use bioinformatics are genomics and proteomics. The field of genomics generates a vast amount of data from gene sequences, their interrelation, and functions. Bioinformatics plays a very important role to manage this vast amount of data. Bioinformatics provides both theoretical bases and practical methods for detecting systemic functional behaviors of the cell and the organism.

Baqai Institute of Information Technology (BIIT) is the pioneer of BS-Bioinformatics Degree Program in Sindh. The institute has arranged many workshops and short course on bioinformatics for students and researchers. Till date we have trained a number of participants from several universities who were not only students but scientist, faculties and company executives etc. We are glad to announce “Bioinformatics workshop series (Basic to Advance)” starting with fundamental biological database to Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data analysis. This workshop is divided into four modules and each module will be of one day session. It is up to participant choice to register in one or more modules.
