FRIGE - GSBTM Finishing School (Summer Edition)

Genetics is currently going through a rapid expansion in its suite of techniques and technologies. Understanding these technologies and utilising them in clinical research and diagnostic settings is key for their robust implementation in clinics.

Together with the Gujarat State Biotech Mission, we have developed an advanced course called FRIGE-GSBTM Finishing School that covers the theoretical and practical aspects of genetics and its associated technologies.

In the 8th edition of the one of a kind hands-on course in India, young professionals in research, clinical and medical genetics who want to learn about clinical genomics in the era of high-throughput genomic technologies will gain benefit from attending the course. It is based on over 2 decades of teaching experience established at FRIGE and GSBTM.

Designed for young clinicians, clinical lab specialists (in training) and graduate students, this lab based training course will provide a comprehensive overview of the theory and practical lab skills required for cytogenetics, FISH, microarray, Sanger sequencing, NGS, bioinformatics and genetic counselling.
