BDG LifeSciences (OPC) Pvt. Ltd. India is a Bioinformatics company with expertise in conducting Workshops, Training, Novel Research Projects & Online Courses in technologies of Bioinformatics and is in business since 2010. Being proficient in Drug Discovery & Designing, MD Simulations, NGS Data Analysis, and Gene & Genome Editing by CRISPR/Cas9 to date, we have successfully trained hundreds of participants who were not only students but scientists, faculties, professors, company executives, etc across the world. As we believe in a different way of learning which is HANDS-ON PRACTICAL SESSIONS our workshops are unique because participants perform on their own computer/laptop on software/servers, so it is 100 % practical application of technology which is the main reason for BEING A LEADER in the sector for the last 10 years.

Like every year this year also BDG Lifesciences has launched the Summer Training Program which is for 10 Days. The first batch starts from 10 May 2021 and so on till 28 July 2021. This unique training program covers a wide range of topics in Artificial Intelligence in Drug Discovery and Machine Learning in Cancer Data Analysis & Prediction which is of industrial importance. The program includes training as well as practical sessions so to make you learn in the best way. Online sessions on Zoom/Google meet so to give users a unique learning experience. On successful completion of the course participation certificate will be awarded.

T & C
  • This program is only for current students who are enrolled in any Undergraduate/Graduate/Masters.
  • If you are not a student and register then no training will be conducted and no refund will be made.
  • If you are not a student then don't worry have patience, we will launch the same program soon.
  • Interactive training sessions will be conducted on Google Meet/Zoom so to give users a better learning experience.
  • As it is with a LIVE TRAINER hence practical application, i.e., the experiments/tasks to be performed can be done in the best explainable manner.
  • In this Online Training Program, there will be a LIVE trainer who will solve queries along with training.
  • Make sure you register under the right category. If you register under the wrong category then your registration will be invalid and NO REFUND WILL BE MADE IN THIS CASE. This is your mistake and the company is not responsible for it.
  • To avoid this do read the description of the ticket before selecting and proceeding with payment.
  • You need to upload your professional ID which can be your Student ID Card or Research Institute ID Card or Company ID Card.
  • The certificate will be issued as per the details which you provide in the registration form while registering before payment.
  • Once you register relax we will send you the meeting link after the workshop registration gets over.
  • We want to make sure that you learn properly hence the training certificate will be given ONLY on successful completion of all the tasks given by the trainer.
