Due to rapidly evolving technological platforms in biology, there is a need to keep pace with latest developments in field to explore their versatile applications. Interactions resulting from protein-protein, protein-peptide, protein-RNA, protein-DNA or protein- small molecule have immense application in life-sciences and translational biology. Through this course, we aim to provide an interface between distinguished scientists involved in advanced interactomics research, industrial partners, faculties and students. This course would feature an intensive lecture series followed by some demonstrations designed to provide the much needed training required to explore the endless possibilities in interactomics research using genomics and proteomics approach, that can be useful for a researcher at any stage.This course of applications of interactomics using genomics and proteomics technologies focuses on two powerful platforms: Protein microarrays and Label-free biosensors and Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) Technology.The students/participants will gain exposure to the above mentioned technologies and its applications from some of the experts in the field, from both- academia and industry perspective.
INTENDED AUDIENCE: Biology or biotechnology background students having interest in latest technologies, (BE/B.Tech) Biotechnology Students, B.Sc. students science background but course is open to all.
