Genomics for personalized medicine

Genome sequencing technologies are enabling research and demystifying genetic diseases and disorders, at a rapid pace. New medical interventions and therapeutic approaches are being invented and employed in the healthcare sector. These new approaches will be highly personalized keeping the patient’s unique genetic architecture and emergent needs in mind creating a need for trained individuals who have a detailed understanding of genomics as well as its application in personalized medicine. This research program is designed to make you ready for the immediate future of the healthcare industry.

This research program is divided into two parts: the junior scientist program and the senior scientist program. The junior scientist program will cover all basics and backgrounds which will be required for taking advanced topics in the senior scientist program.

How do you join this program?

Step 1

Fill in the application form. A test link will be provided to you on your registered email.

Step 2

Take the test. After attempting 45 multiple choice type questions, based on your performance in the test, you will be invited for an interview.

Step 3

Our faculty will conduct an interview to assess your suitability for the research program at Xions.

Step 4

Impress us with your performance through your projects and your performance in the research programs and get hired.

Process to join

To join this research program click on the "Apply Now" button to fill out and submit the application form. You will receive a link for a multiple-choice-based test on the email address that you provided in the application form. The test will be of 30 minutes consisting of 45 objective-type questions. Each question has four options, of which only one will be correct. 

The test's level of difficulty is at the biology graduation level. The questions will cover subjects of cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, immunology, human anatomy and physiology, basic maths, and statistics. After the successful completion and submission of the test, you will be invited for an interview, if shortlisted. Your entry into this research program will be determined based on your performance in the interview.
Moreover, in addition to the research program, you will have to identify exciting research questions and possible solution paths to find the answer. Our expert faculty is available to help you anytime during office hours. We promise to make an intellectual playground available to you.

All the very best in your performance!

After the completion of the research program, a few top students will be handpicked and hired at Rs. 25,000/month.

Research program requirements

This research program consists of an extensive analysis of genomic data. The analysis of genomic scale data requires a very high computational power. Any applicant willing to be part of this research program must possess or have access to high-configuration computational systems during the entire research program period.

System requirements

  • Processor: i5/Ryzen5, i7/Ryzen7, i9/Ryzen9, (higher configurations are also preferable).

  • RAM: 16 GB or higher

  • Operating system: Linux-based system (Ubuntu/ CentOS/Fedora) (with BASH shell) or Windows with WSL.

This is an essential requirement for research program participation. Students must ensure availability before the research program commences.
