We at IBAB are passionate about promoting Biotechnology and related areas, and thus over the years have conducted various courses that are of interest to working professionals.

Also, with the emergence of bioinformatics as an interdisciplinary area of research and education, there is growing demand in both academia and the life science industry for trained professionals equipped with expertise in both biological and computational sciences.

Thus, IBAB, as a ‘Centre of Excellence in Bioinformatics Research and Training’ of the Department of Information Technology, Ministry of Communications and IT, Government of India, has been offering a number of relevant modular courses for the benefit of students, executives and other working professionals.

Those wishing to gain admission to our courses may stay in touch with us through the IBAB website or register at info@ibab.ac.in.
