Cancer Detection with Bioinformatics

Registration: Open to all.
Date: December 19, 2003
Time: 11:00 am
Venue: Institute of Biochemistry and Biotechnology, University of the Punjab, Quaid-e-Azam Campus, Lahore


Studies of the DNA sequence are paving the ways to diagnose diseases at much early stages leading to possible cures of cancer. Presence of mutated genes could be considered a risk for undesired production of proteins resulting in diseases like cancer. This seminar will highlight the biology of the microarrays, different classification techniques to diagnose cancer and the necessary tools to increase the accuracy of diagnosis.
