BDG LifeSciences (OPC) Pvt. Ltd. formerly known as BioDiscovery Group, India is an expert in conducting Training, Novel Research Projects, Workshops & Online Courses in technologies of Bioinformatics. Started in 2010 we have been conducting Workshops since 2012 and till date we have successfully trained hundreds of participants who were not only students but scientists, faculties, professor, company executives, etc from India as well as other countries. 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 practical application of technology which is the main reason of our success where we have conducted 100+ workshops around the world on latest technologies of Bioinformatics specially Drug Discovery & Designing, MD Simulations, NGS Data Analysis and Gene & Genome Editing by CRISPR/Cas9. 

We have launched our next 5 day program on Drug Discovery Technology | Insights of Protein-Ligand Interactions in which we will teach about the process of Drug Discovery & Design along with interaction of inhibitors with biological targets.

This 5 day, hands-on training course will focus on the use of efficient technologies used in Structure based drug design and the focus will be on the how the structural data can be used in molecular modeling to design lead molecules based on the structural features of the active site that can lead to design of new molecules which can be drugs and have good target potency.

Online sessions will be conducted everyday from 9:30 PM - 11 PM IST (India Standard Time- UTC +5:30).

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).

T & C:

  • Training session will be conducted everyday from 9:30 PM-11:00 PM IST (India Standard Time- UTC +5:30).
  • The training sessions will be conducted as CHAT, so that you can save the session for reference and use it later for reference. NO VIDEO AND NO AUDIO.
  • The category in which you register, you will get certificate of that ONLY. So choose the right category.
  • If you register under wrong category then your registration will be invalid and NO REFUND WILL BE MADE IN THIS CASE. This is your mistake and the company is not responsible for it.
  • Only Windows OS are required.
  • Once you register we will send you Welcome email 2 days prior to the workshop. This email will have all details of files, software as well as MESSENGER ID on which you have to send request.
  • Your request will be accepted 5 minutes prior to the start of the workshop. So do not panic if you have sent the request and it is not accepted. It will be accepted 5 minutes prior to your session.
  • If there is power cut/power loss/any other technical difficulty and you miss some part of session then we will compensate that time in the next session. Example, if you have lost 30 minutes then your next session will be of 2:00 hours instead of 1:30 hours.
  • If you do not turn up for training session on any day then you will be sent an email about the things which would be covered on that day. Next day the next thing will be covered.
  • If on any day you are late for more than 20 mins then also your training session will not be conducted and steps will be send to you for that day's session. You have to complete and come on time on the next day.
  • If you have any urgent work then you can shift that and make sure to be online at your time. The training certificate will be given on successful completion of the tasks.
  • No refund will be made in any case.
