Biotechnology Society of Nepal(BSN) in collaboration with BioDiscovery Group Solutions for Future, India is going to organize 3 day workshop on Drug Discovery & Designing from 26-28 July 2013 in Kathmandu, Nepal. BioDiscovery-Solutions for is carrying out several programs in the form of training, novel research projects, online training programs, workshops & seminars to make learn this technology to students/ researchers/ professionals from all over the world. We conduct hands on training workshops and seminars at Universities/ Colleges/ Conferences all over the world to make learn the newest technology.
This workshop is unique as the participants work on the software and perform what they learn, i.e. practical application of the technology. The course is suitable for students, scientists, technicians, engineers and academicians.
LUNCH: FREE FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS FOR 3 DAYS
LAST DATE OF REGISTRATION: 30 JUNE 2013
After this date the fee increases to 5 US $ for above mentioned categories.
Onsite registration: 100 US $ for all
