PG D Bioinformatics (PGDBI) - Stands for Post Graduate Diploma in Bio-informatics. Typically, a PGD in Bio-informatics is a one year course, minimum eligibility for which is a Bachelor's Degree in science discipline. The application of computer science as well as statistics to the area of molecular biology is known as bio-informatics. Bioinformatics requires students to gain skills in bioinformatics, biology, statistics, and computing/programming, and to apply these skills in advanced bioinformatics courses. All students take a required introductory bioinformatics course in the Fall semester of the first year, plus biology, statistics, and computational courses corresponding to their background and interests. Students are closely advised to match their backgrounds to this curriculum, and a special curriculum is available for cross-training, i.e., to bring students with quantitative background into the biosciences, and to acquaint biologists with computer science and statistical methods.
