Biology is an integrated subject encompassing applied
Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, Chemistry and
Biochemistry to solve Biological problems usually at the
molecular level. Bioinformatics is directed towards the study of
sequence alignment, gene finding, genome assembly, protein
structure alignment, protein structure prediction, prediction of
gene expression and protein protein interaction and the
phylogenetic modeling and evolutionary relationship. With its
unparalleled strength in the area of Information Technology,
India is on the brink of a major revolution in the area of
Biotechnology and Bioinformatics is one of the emerging
areas where there is a great potential for career opportunities.
The first two semesters of the program cover topics required for
a sound knowledge of both Biology- related and IT subjects.
These include Cell Biology and Genetics, Immunology,
Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Mathematics and Statistics,
Linux Programming, Programming in C, Python, and Biological
Databases & Sequence Analysis.
The Third and Fourth semesters aim at providing students with
advanced training in areas like Genomics, Proteomics, Drug
Design and Discovery, Programming with PERL and JAVA,
DBMS, Data Warehousing and Algorithms in Bioinformatics. At
the end of each even semesters (Second & Fourth) the students
have to complete a Project Work.
Objectives: The program aims at realizing the following
- To provide the students with the requisite knowledge that
will enable them to pursue a career in Bioinformatics either
in academics or in industry.
- To Impart in-depth training in theoretical and practical
aspects of applications of Information Technology to solve
problems in Biology.
- To enable the students to acquire an integrated outlook of
the subject so that they could become potential researchers
in the fields of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics.
