Advanced Hands-On training on

About The Workshop

The University of Dhaka, in collaboration with the University Putra Malaysia, University of Montana (USA), Kent State University (USA), Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (KUET) is organizing a five-day-long advanced studies workshops in computational biology. Ohio Super-computing Center (USA) will provide HPC support. This workshop has received funding from Asi@Connect project which is the European Union co-funding project under Grant contract ACA 2016-376-562. 

The program will allow participants to work on their research projects during the workshops and afterward using the high-performance resources provided by the organizers. We are expecting to provide HPC resources to all participants for 12 months beyond the workshop. 

Participants will receive lectures/instruction in a wide range of Bioinformatics/computational biology subjects, covering analysis of sequence data, molecular modeling, molecular dynamics and other advanced topics. For the remainder of the day, participants focus on interactive, hands-on training. Participants will have the opportunity to work on the individual project they proposed to the workshop. They will also have the opportunity to work on smaller projects to practice areas of computational biology that may not be directly relevant to their research project. Such flexibility will allow the participants to choose a project based on their interest, background, and need and learn at their own pace.

Target Participants

This is an advanced training program limited to applicants who already have exposure to basic Bioinformatics/Computational Biology research with experience in Linux. Early career faculty members (e.g. Lecturer/Senior Lecturer), PhD students, Master degree students and final year undergraduate students who are doing research on Bioinformatics/Computational Biology area can only apply. Workshop fellowship is limited to selected maximum 25 Bangladeshi participants residing in Bangladesh. Foreign participants are welcome who can provide their own full cost of participation (registration, travel, accommodation, food etc ~300 USD). This is a resident workshop, all participants need to stay in selected guest house (Khulna University/KUET) for six nights (14 -19 February 2023). We are unable to offer this course to industry or other professionals.



All the selected Bangladeshi participants will be provided
