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.
I feel extremely proud to say that I have completed my graduation and Post-graduation in Microbiology from a prestigious institution like Amrita School of Biotechnology. The 5 years spent here were splendid and has helped me grow personally and professionally. The relationship between the faculty and the students is very cordial and has paved way for a great learning experience. I am ever grateful to all the faculty, staff and my batch mates for giving me a wonderful campus life.
