BDG LifeSciences (OPC) Pvt. Ltd. India is a Bioinformatics company expertise in conducting Workshops, Training, Novel Research Projects & Online Courses in technologies of Bioinformatics and is into 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 of BEING A LEADER in the sector for the last 10 years. 

Our experience and success can be weighed in terms of 500+ workshops around the world, 60+ International publications of our research projects and thousands of trained participants.

We have launched a 4-day technical online training program on CHEMOINFORMATICS & DRUG DISCOVERY USING MACHINE LEARNING. This 4 day, hands-on training course will focus on the use of efficient technologies with HANDS-ON practical application where participants will perform on their own computer system.

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.





Day 1

Introduction to Machine Learning and its Applications


Dataset retrieval for classification (focusing on drug discovery)


Descriptors or Features and types


Day 2

Dimensionality reduction and Identifying significant features via various Feature selection techniques


Day 3

Machine Learning Algorithms:

With basic knowledge in Life Science and Drug Design that would like to receive a comprehensive overview or refresher on the Drug Discovery Technology the target audience comprises Student & Faculty: Bachelor, Masters, PhD, students as well as Faculty and Professors from Microbiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Immunology, Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Biomedical Technology, Genetics, Bioinformatics, Plant Science and Life Sciences. Professionals: Biotechnology, Bioinformatics and Pharmaceutical scientists from industry, academia and regulatory agencies. Hands-on exercises will be performed individually using software tools (no prior experience required).

Salma Jamal, Ph.D. is a DHR-Young Scientist and her research has circled around mining enormous diverse biological data and identify & prioritize previously unknown relationships and new strategies that would enable solving various disease-associated problems.
She is an expert in using various bioinformatics and cheminformatics methods to identify molecules with biological activities from diverse chemical libraries. She used the Crowdsourcing approach to perform data analysis and Crowd Computing for Cheminformatics (2C4C), to develop predictive models for almost all the significant confirmatory screens available on PubChem.
During her Ph.D., she carried computational work including molecular dynamics simulations, generated machine learning-based models for activity prediction, prediction of adverse drug reactions, identification of disease-associated mutations, and prediction of disease-associated genes. She has also used long-range molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to explore the effects of urea and TMAO in regulating the conformational properties focusing on the structural aspect of α-synuclein peptide, which is intrinsically disordered in its monomeric form.
Further, she has also performed Long-range replica exchange molecular dynamics guided drug repurposing against tyrosine kinase PtkA of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb). Her recent work is focused on developing an updated database comprising almost all reported substitutions within the M.tb drug target genes rpoB, inhA, katG, pncA, gyrA, and gyrB. This was followed by evaluating the impact of these mutations on the binding affinity of the drugs to target proteins. She is also a part of the team which has developed a comprehensive online resource named MycoTRAP-DB that connects mutations in genes with their structural, functional, and pathogenic implications on protein.
She joined as a Technical Associate at BDG Lifesciences and now conducts training, workshop, and research projects on topics of her expertise.
