About the Practical Course

** Updated:  List of successful applicants chosen to attend this course.

This course was heavily oversubscribed and is now FULL.  Thank you to everyone else who applied and was not successful!


Microarray technology is an indispensable tool for rapid gene expression analysis in the Genome sequence era.

The increasing numbers of whole genome sequences being unraveled, opens the possibility of functional analysis of genes from bacteria to mammals using DNA microarray.


The aim of this course is to give the participants a practical introduction into the analysis of gene expression using microarrays.


The course takes the participants through the complete process of a microarray analysis, from RNA isolation through to data analysis.


The practical programme of laboratory and blackboard sessions is supported by a series of lectures by visiting scientists presenting their current research in this area.

This training programme is organised in theĀ  Center for Marine Science and Technology (CMST). CMST is one of the important departments of Manonmaniam Sundaranar University, a state university in Tamilnadu, India.

We look forward to seeing you inTamil Nadu!
