                         Funded by ICMR.
  Objectives

            To provide training in basic molecular biology techniques that would be required in
             pharmacogenetic studies
            To impart web-based training in basic concepts of bio-informatics
            To impart theoretical knowledge on some of the recently developed molecular biology tools
            To create a knowledge base of elementary medical genetics, statistical methods, etc.
             towards carrying out pharmacogenetic and related research



    Target participants
This workshop is intended for beginners in molecular biology and bio-informatics, with focus on
„pharmacogenomics‟. A total of 28 participants will be admitted preferably post-graduate students and
faculty members of departments of pharmacology and allied Sciences.


   Course Content
  Participants workshop is 6 days excluding sunday, and will include practical
   The duration of the
   demonstrations and hands-on training in molecular biology techniques such as DNA and RNA
   extraction, quality check and quantification of DNA and RNA, the polymerase chain reaction -
   restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP), gel electrophoresis: horizontal and vertical.
   Demonstrations of Real time-PCR and DNA sequencer.
  Bioinformatics will include locating the gene sequence of interest, identification of the PCR
   product, primer design, and selection of the restriction endonucleases and validation of the PCR
   method by sequencing.
  Lectures will be held on the elements of medical genetics, organization of a molecular biology
   laboratory, Real time PCR, DNA sequencing, high throughput screening for detection of mutations,
   etc.
