In the late 2019, coronavirus has emerged as a highly contagious disease that affected more than 200 countries of the World. Coronavirus infections have emerged as epidemic and pandemic threats in last two decades as well. Molecular biology is the branch of biology that concerns the molecular basis of biological activity in and between cells, including molecular synthesis, modification, mechanisms and interactions. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data, in particular when the data sets are large and complex. Using these two fields we can achieve better understanding of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV)-2 and make advancement regarding the development of vaccine or possible treatment.National Institute of Health has been actively engaged in different activities pertaining to COVID-19 even before the emergence of this virus in Pakistan. In order to understand the virus pathogenesis, there is a dire need to have knowledge of molecular and computational biology skills. Keeping in mind, NIH has decided to launch an internship program that will train young minds in the designated fields.
Objectives of the program:
