Training conducted by the Centre
The BIC at IMTECH has created an infrastructure for providing the facility to the users working in the field of biological sciences. The users of northern region are using facilities available at this BIC extensively. The following is the brief description of the services offered by this Centre to users. Visit our web site for detail (http://imtech.res.in/).
- E-mail Facility
- Internet Facility
- Literature Patent Search
- Sequence Searching/Analysis
- Collaborative Research
Centre is providing E-mail facilities since 1990 . Our Email facility has been used expensively by users of northern region.
BIC have two 24hr Internet connection. Users at IMTECH can access Internet from their desk.
BIC is routinely providing literature search facility to the users. Earlier this facility was provided by Medline on NIC via NICNET connection and DIALOG databases via telephone line. Now these facilities are provided through Internet.

- Preventive maintenance of computers.
In order to educate the user from latest advances in field of computer and information technology. We conducted more than 10 workshop at national level. Following Workshop were conducted at this Centre In addition we also provides training to industry, private company or academic institutes on request. Recently we conducted:
- a two weeks training programme for a few personnel of Asia Privacy, South Korea.
