Course programme

Bioinfomatics often interchangebly used with Computational Biology is an intergrated subject encompassing applied Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, Chemistry and Biochemistry to solve the biological problems usually at the molecular level. Bioinformatics is directed towards the study of sequence aligment, 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 course 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. after successful completion of first two semesters of MScBI, if a student wishes to discontinue, such a student will be awarded the PG Diploma in Bioinformatics (PGDBI).
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 Bioinfomatics. At the end of each even semesters (Second & Fourth) the students have to complete a Project Work.
