Training opportunities

Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility, is involved in to promote innovation in Biology Teaching through Bioinformatics .The goal of this scheme is to expose teachers and students to real-world of science and the use of bioinformatics (Cyber bioscience) in solving hard core biological problems. Tutorials are available online to help students and teachers, learn how to navigate those resources through online and gather data that can be applied to original questions. Several sites provide free and unhindered access to biological information resources which include lecture materials, video clippings, demonstration and so on.

BIF center at Tezpur University is trying to extend the idea of spreading out bioinformatics awareness. The Facility is rich in computational resouces and thus one of the ideal places to learn and understand Bioinformatics. DBT along with the institute aided us in organising various short as well as long term training programs.
