Held a Two week course on Genomics in Healthcare & Translational Research for
young scientists from across India. From over 200 applications,25 undergraduate,
graduate & doctoral students from across India were selected to participate in a
residential Two week hands on workshop in "Genomics in Helathcare & Translational
Research" from December,10-23,2017.This workshop was under the aegis of the B4
