BioDiscovery Group is offering internship of 3 & 6 months at our Bengaluru Office, Karnataka, India. The internship program starts from January 2018 and the topics in which we are providing internship are:

  • NGS Data Analysis
  • Drug Discovery Technology- Bioinformatics, Docking & MD Simulations
  • Immunoinformatics & Vaccine Design

The salient features of the program are-

  • The fee for the 3 month Internship program includes training, research, field work and experience of working in a Biotech organization.
  • The fee for the 6 month Internship program includes training, a novel research project with International publication, field work and experience of working in a Biotech organization.
  • The fee for this internship program can be paid in two installments.
  • The students will also get exposure of travelling in India and Foreign countries with the team of BioDiscovery Group to assist in conducting workshops & training programs. 
  • As we always value the talent hence there is a good chance of recruitment of the trainees.

The subtopics under each technology are as follows:

Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis
