    Karyshala Scheme

    KARYASHALA is an effort by the Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), Government of India via Accelerate Vigyan to improve research productivity of promising PG and Ph.D students from universities and colleges through high-end workshops on specific themes. This program aims to provide opportunities to acquire specialized research skills. For more details: https://acceleratevigyan.gov.in/programs/abhyas/karyashala

    About SASTRA

    Shanmugha Arts, Science, Technology & Research Academy (SASTRA Deemed University) is a Category – I University (University Grants Commission’s Graded Autonomy Regulations 2018) offering Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Doctoral programmes in Engineering, Sciences, Education, Management, Law and Arts. A sprawling campus having a built-up area of 2,22,129.02 square meter spread over 232 acres and a vibrant population of students and teaching faculty have made SASTRA a landmark in the educational map of India. SASTRA has achieved national standing in terms of academic performance, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and also in its growth and commitment to social service. In recognition of its commitment of these, SASTRA has been re-accredited with Grade “A++” by the National Accreditation and Assessment Council. In a first-of-its kind recognition, twelve engineering programmes of SASTRA have been accredited by Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET), UK for a period of 9 years. SASTRA houses two Technology Business Incubators supported by the Government of India in the areas of Additive Manufacturing, Internet of Things, Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality, Medical Devices & Diagnostics.

The Drug Testing Laboratory at the School is approved by the Drug Controller of Tamil Nadu. The School is credited with the design and development of first indigenous laser-assisted, 3D-Bioprinter.

    Conference Theme

    • Advances in Structural Bioinformatics:The field is rapidly changing with high-throughput techniques of structure determination and introduction of new tools to integrate data from different sources of structure determination.

    • Genomic Data Analysis and Statistical Genomics:With more high quality next-generation sequencing techniques that have expanded to single-cell, exome, and other sequencing focus is on to handle such large volume data in an automated manner.

    • Systems Modelling and Network Engineering:Metabolic engineering and synthetic biology are focused with analyzing data that come from various omics sources.

    • Computational Drug Discovery:Many diseases lack a proper treatment strategy that are studied with high-throughput computational techniques. This speeds-up the identification of novel chemical entities (NCE) to overcome resistance and diversity in the existing molecular landscape.

    • Big Data platforms for Biology:The high influx of diverse datatypes in Biology has warranted the need to faster, efficient, and automated approaches to analyze data to extract the necessary information.
