A technical workshop on High Throughput 16S rRNA Gene Sequence-based Metagenomics will be conducted by MNM 2017, under the guidance of Applied Biosystems, Thermo Scientific, at the Central Instrument Facility of Bose Institute Unified Campus, immediately after the Conference (on October 30th and 31st 2017). For practical reasons, the workshop will be limited to a maximum of 25 attendees. Students are especially encouraged to participate.
Tentative program schedule

10.00 AM - 11.00 AM - Enrichment 11.00 AM - 01.00 PM - Sequencing set up 01.00 PM - 02.00 PM - Lunch Break 02.00 PM - 04.00 PM - Data Analysis (on data generated earlier) 04.00 PM - 04.30 PM - Discussion and wrap-up
Enrollment Participants for this workshop would be chosen on the basis of their current research concerns/undertakings centered on Metagenomic solution/revelation of Microbial Ecological problems/phenomena.
Aspiring participants, after having successfully registered to the MNM 2017, should send their request on or before September 30th (23:59 IST) via an e-mail (from their unique identifier email ID) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject line “Request for Participation in Ion NGS Workshop”. A one-page write-up summarizing how the candidate’s current research concerns/undertakings would be benefited from this workshop should be attached with the email.
Final selection will be done only after all applications have been received and reviewed by theMNM 2017 Secretariat. Applicants will be notified about their selection on or before October 15th (23:59 IST).
Chosen candidates would not be required to pay any additional fee for participating in this workshop.
