National Workshop on NGS Analysis
16 - 19 September, 2014


Jointly organized by Rajiv Gandhi Center for Biotechnology (RGCB) and European Molecular Biology Laboratory - European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI)


Identification and assembly of signal transduction pathways in a system are fundamental to biology as they serve as inevitable gateway to systems biology. A large number of visually complex pathway models available today are developed by assembling individual molecular reactions in multiple contexts of the experimentation, model systems and ligand-receptor specificity. Hence a thorough understanding of how they are made and assembled across these multiple contexts is important for real-time evaluation of those models and their use for analysis of high-throughput proteomics and transcriptomics data.


National Workshop on Microarray data analysis using R /Bioconductor
16 - 18 January, 2013


The Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology (RGCB), jointly with the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF) USA, organized a National Workshop on "Microarray data analysis using R/Bioconductor" as part of a cancer informatics workshop series funded by the Department of Biotechnology.


Cancer research has rapidly evolved with the advent of high throughput technologies, such as microarrays and deep sequencing. Over the past few years, microarrays have become an established technology in molecular biology to explore global gene expression. The aim of this workshop is to familiarize participants with advanced microarray technology and its data analysis in the context of cancer informatics and provide hands-on training on latest bioinformatics approaches.
