Who We Are
Decode life is a group of enthusiastic researchers, who are aimed to (de)code the life sciences. Our goal is to create a self sustained system through cross learning and joining hands together to address the problems that matter the most. With the availability of large data, Bioinformatics has become an integral part for almost every biomedical lab. We wanted to fill in the niche and train the next generation of data scientists.
Decode Life is a platform which is created with the following Mission
To provide adequate training in research-relevant skills in the area of life sciences to researchers / students / faculties / scientists across the globe.
To provide a platform for guidance in the field of Biotechnology Entrepreneurship.
To fill the knowledge gaps in the area of data and information driven life sciences innovations and discovery by providing a unique infrastructure.
