IICT and online applications are invited from qualified and eligible candidates.

About the course  

Cheminformatics is a rapidly evolving science that drives Chemical Science Research and addresses addresses key issues in Chemistry using the power of Computation. Basic Cheminformatics Training covers 30 hours of (10 days) theoretical and practical aspects related to computational modeling of compounds, properties, activities and chemical reactions. Students will be introduced to chemical databases, open source software applications and data mining during the course.

The course outlines:

- Theory: Basic understanding of Chemical Space, Chemical properties, chemical reactions and chemical databases 
- Practical: Manipulation of chemical structure,  chemical reactions, chemical activity prediction of drug likeliness and chemical properties, Chemical structure and substructure search

Course outcomes: 

At the end of the course, a student will be able to 

- Investigate chemicals and materials that are not practical for laboratory analysis.
- Model individual molecules or behaviors of chemical compounds within the natural world.
- Work with databases to catalog, categorize, organize, and search the structures of chemicals.
- Complement laboratory experimentation with computational chemistry  
- Develop information-storage solutions at the molecular level. 

Intake of candidates: Maximum intake of the candidates is 30. Course Fee: Rs. 10,000/- (Rupees Ten Thousand Only) + GST as applicable. Fee paid once, will not be refunded under any circumstances. The course fee does not include the hostel accommodation.
