The Winter School in Bioinformatics has come to an end. Throughout these five days, a lot of brainstorming has taken place and the participant feedback indicate that they have been satisfied to the hilt.
The Invited Lectures delivered by some of the stalwart researchers in their respective fields of study were helpful in providing insights regarding how to follow a particular line of study for a number of years with patience and perseverance, with determination and adaptability to grasp new ideas and evolving technologies
We remain thankful to Dr. B.K. Behera, Principal Scientist CIFRI, Professor Amita Pal, Emeritus Scientist, Bose Institute, Dr. Debdutta Ganguli, Research Scientist TMRC, Kolkata and Dr. Souvik Mukherjee, Assistant Professor, BMGC – Kolkata for delivering invigorating lectures.
The technical lectures were unique in their own way as each lecture was connected to the following one. This helped the participants to understand how a Bioinformatics Analyses Pipeline is built from scratch and how to improve it using programming (R).
Finally the Young Scientist Competition saw seven young nubile minds delivering their research in commendable fashion.
