Instructor Name :-
Shanmugam Dr. D. , Kadoo Dr. N. Y.
DNA sequencing by NGS methods and genome editing technologies using CRISPR/Cas systems are increasingly impacting various areas of biomedical and biotechnology applications. The Oxford Nanopore Technology based DNA sequencing has made it extremely easy and economical to generate sequence data from whole genomes to multiplexed PCR amplicons to transcriptome profiles. This has resulted in the development of numerous applications for this technology. The CRISPR/Cas systems have revolutionized genome editing as a tool for genetic studies as well for biotechnological applications. This course will introduce the participants to these two technologies in theory and hands-on training.
