Sathyaa S.
M.Sc. Bioinformatics (2008-2010), Post Doctoral Fellow, University of Pavia, Italy

Amrita School of Biotechnology is one of the best experiences I have ever had. The knowledge that I gained at ASBT was the “start up” for my research career. Bioinformatics program at ASBT provides a good framework that helps to improve the theoretical biology and to develop the programming skill set. Highly qualified faculty members helps to create a good research ambiguity for students. I thoroughly enjoyed the ABST Bioinformatics experience and will cherish not only the knowledge I gained but also the friendship that I made.
