Innovation & creativity is an integral part of BDG Lifesciences and we always launch new programs on the newest topics. Now advancing in the technology we have launched our next 3-day complete hands-on Online Workshop in Computational Epigenetics | Study of how cells regulate gene expression without changing DNA sequence.
Epigenetics is the study of how cells regulate gene expression without changing DNA sequence. Modifications around DNA like DNA methylation, Histone acetylation alter DNA accessibility and chromatin structure, thereby regulating gene expression.This program will be an extensive 5 day hands-on training program in which everyday 120 minutes of live session will be conducted by Dr Shahul Hameed and participants will run the processes (insilico) on their own computer systems with complete learning of this revolutionary technology. Video recording of each session will be provided at the end of the session to give the user a unique learning experience. On successful completion of the course participation certificate will be awarded.

1. Epigenetic mechanisms:
  • Cytosine methylation
  • Post translational modification of Histone residues & re-modelling of chromatin
  • Noncoding RNA based Epigenetic mechanisms
2. Epigenetic Databases
3. Microarray-based DNA methylation profiling & Analysis
4. Bisulfite sequencing & Analysis - To identify patterns of methylation
5. Chip-Seq Workflow & Data Analysis
6. Microarray based noncoding RNA profiling

OUTCOME OF THIS PROGRAM: Participants will learn to understand and analyze epigenomic data to identify and detect methylation patterns, Histone modifications, noncoding RNAs on gene expression.

Student: Bachelor, Masters, PhD, MBBS, MD students as well as Faculty and Professors from Microbiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Immunology, Medicine, Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Biomedical Technology, Genetics, Bioinformatics, Plant Science and Life Sciences.
Professionals: Resident Doctors, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Medicine and Pharmaceutical scientists from industry, academia, and regulatory agencies. Hands-on exercises will be performed individually using software tools on your own laptops. (no prior experience required).


Dr. Shahul Hameed is a researcher and his research involves developing CRISPR based gene therapy for Muscular dystrophy and Sickle Cell Anaemia. He is also involved in the development of novel delivery systems for gene therapy. His research interest extends to design of mRNA based therapeutics and design of Artificial Intelligence based Digital health & Imaging tools. In Collaboration with Dystrophy Annihilation Research Trust, his lab was involved in gene editing of DMD gene for development of CRISPR based therapeutics. [Nov 2018 to Aug 2022]

He has worked as Senior Assistant Professor at B.S. Abdur Rahman Crescent University, Chennai and earlier at Bannari Amman Institute of Technology, Erode. He was involved in teaching biotechnology subjects like Protein Engineering, Genomics and Proteomics, Structural Biology, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Genetic Engineering and Chemical Reaction Engineering to students. His research work involved Drug Design against S100A4 oncoprotein. Further development of Machine Learning based tools for predicting thermodynamic stability of enzyme mutants. He was selected through ERASMUS to conduct workshops on drug design and protein engineering at University of Nottingham, UK.

He is a PhD in Biological Sciences from Indian Institute of Science(IISc), Bangalore. At IISc, his research work involved Protein Engineering and Structural Characterization of the engineered mutants using Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and other biophysical methods. His research work also involved characterization of Protein-Protein interactions using experimental techniques, like NMR and Mass spectrometry, genetic engineering and Computer simulations.

He did his postdoctoral training at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai. There his work involved development of novel NMR techniques to study huge protein complexes. His work also involved Cloning, Protein Expression and Purification of motor proteins.

Online Session will be conducted on Zoom/GoogleMeet/Microsoft Teams of which the link will be shared 2 hours prior to the session.
