Details of workshop


    Title: Biology: Advanced Biology Lab

Course Objectives:

We have designed a five-day advance biology training to give a flavor of different aspects of life science research. The workshop is designed in five modules and each module will look into the biological system from organismal level to molecular level.

Duration: 6 Days
