About the ProgramThe Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute, Harvard University hosts a workshop under the "Young Scientist Development Course." The Institute of Bioinformatics and Applied Biotechnology (IBAB), Bangalore, a non-profit organization, will organize the short duration online workshop/course with the support of the Building Bharat-Boston Biosciences (B4) Program funded by the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India Program will be conducted at the Mittal Institute. Lectures in the workshop will be delivered by eminent speakers from Harvard University, Broad Institute, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), academicians and industry professionals. Nowadays due to the proliferation of science, technology and health care sciences like medical imaging, cellular imaging, computational neurosciences, genomics and medical diagnostics huge data is generated and to manage this data is the biggest challenge. The short term course will provide an opportunity for the students to be familiar with the use of big data in precision medicine, genomics, pharma and drug discovery, Artificial Intelligence and machine learning in the analysis of biological and medical imaging data and will provide hand-on-training to the students. Under this program, talented Indian students who are pursuing undergraduate or graduate or doctoral courses and are enrolled in the science/technology higher institution in India are encouraged to apply.

The postgraduates or research scholars in life sciences have a large data base related to their respective fields but assimilating data and using computer applications for using the data in a structured way and for the research topic in hand is the actual action that is to be taken by the students. It is in that context that this type of workshop will be beneficial in learning the professional techniques for data mining and data presentation for showcasing the project or research work to the scientific and technical community. The eligible candidates should try to get selected in this online worksop giving good opportunity which will help them in completing any project in life science topics in their workplace and enrich them with more experience in the niche area.
