Bioinformatics doesn’t need any introduction; it has categorized biology as another branch of information science. This field is evolving rapidly, which makes it challenging for biotechnology professionals to keep up with recent advancements. This one day symposium is recommended for both molecular biologists and computer scientists desiring to understand the major issues concerning analysis of genomes, sequences and structures. The event will discuss the strengths and limitations of various existing methods and potential Research and carrier aspects in bioinformatics.
Date and Time: Saturday, 6th November 2010, 10.30am - 05.15pm
