Overview

Bioinformatics is extensively used in biomedical research and developmental activities. It integrates mathematics, computer science, molecular biology, information technology, and genetic engineering. In this era of the genomic revolution, the data is being gathered faster than it can be analyzed and utilized. There is a tremendous demand for professionals who can use technology to utilize the ever-growing collection of biological information. Bioinformatics is the science of storing, extracting, organizing, analyzing, interpreting and utilizing biological information. This course intends to provide hands-on training along with project work, to help work competently in a bioinformatics environment. The knowledge acquired also provides additional qualifications for a prospective candidate towards employment.
