About the Meeting:
The primary goal of this Annual Winter Meeting organized by BSBE department is to expose the young students and budding researchers to the basic concepts and recent advances made in specific domains of biological sciences and bioengineering. The theme of this year's meeting is "Computational Biology in Disease Mechanisms" and will bring together leading scientists engaged in cutting-edge research areas of computational biology domain using different computational techniques and tools. The participants will get decent exposure from machine learning, metagenomics and mathematical modeling to molecular dynamics, drug design and diagnostic tools. The unifying theme will be how these diverse computational tools can be applied to understand the mechanisms of different diseases. It will provide an informal setting to the participants and the speakers to interact. This will be an ideal platform for stimulating discussions and exchange of ideas and will ignite interests in computational biology research among the young participants.
