FRIGE - GSBTM Finishing School

Genetics is currently going through a rapid expansion in its suite of techniques and technologies. Understanding these technologies and using them in 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.

This one of a kind hands-on course is for those young professionals in clinical and medical genetics who want to learn about clinical genomics in the era of high-throughput genomic technologies. The course is based on the 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.
