Foundation Course in Bioinformatics

Foundation courses are short term introduction courses offered in different departments and disciplines in Biotechnology. They aim at baptizing the student towards Biotechnology and providing them with the basic platform for more advanced research. The training modules compromise individual hands-on training and serve as an introductory exposure to learning highly advanced modules in future.
