Event description

BDG LifeSciences, operating in India as BDG LifeSciences (OPC) Pvt. Ltd., and in collaboration with BBR PTY LTD. in Australia, is a distinguished bioinformatics company specializing in the facilitation of workshops, training sessions, innovative research projects, and online courses within the realm of bioinformatics technologies. Established in 2010, the company has been actively engaged in the field, holding registrations under the Ministry of MSME (Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises), Government of India, with the registration number UDYAM-UP-01-0019151. Over the years, BDG LifeSciences has successfully imparted knowledge to a diverse array of participants worldwide, including students, scientists, faculty members, professors, and corporate executives.

As we believe in a different way of learning which is HANDS-ON PRACTICAL SESSIONS our workshops are unique because participants perform on their own computer/laptop on software/servers, so it is 100 % practical application of technology which is the main reason of BEING A LEADER in the sector for the last 14 years.

We have launched our next 5-day technical online training program on DRUG DISCOVERY & DESIGNING | FROM MOLECULAR DOCKING TO MD SIMULATIONS in which we will teach about the process of Drug Discovery & Design along with the interaction of inhibitors with biological targets. This 5 day, hands-on training course in which every day 120 minutes interactive training sessions will be conducted to give the user a unique learning experience will focus on the use of efficient technologies used in Structure-based drug design and the focus will be on how the structural data can be used in molecular modeling to design lead molecules based on the structural features of the active site that can lead to the design of new molecules which can be drugs and have good target potency.

Video recording will be provided at the end of the session to give the user a unique learning experience. On successful completion of the course participation certificate will be awarded.

This program is divided in to 2 very important stages of Drug Discovery. Part 1 is Molecular Docking and Part 2 is MD Simulations. The details and schedule is below:
