The Human Genome Project is one of the best examples of Bioinformatics. This rapidly developing branch of biology is highly interdisciplinary, using concepts and techniques from informatics, statistics, mathematics, retrieval and analysis of data related to biological systems. Started in the academic year 2004-05, the department strives to train human resource to take up the challenges of the
=> B.Tech Bioinformatics
=> M.Tech Bioinformatics
=> Ph.D Bioinformatics
Research activities help the faculty to intellectually stimulate the young minds. Research in the department is focused on drug designing and development, protein purification and proteomics. Thrust is given for submission of research proposals to funding agencies such as DBT, DST, CSIR and DRDO. Faculty are involved in student projects, internally funded pilot projects, externally funded projects and multi-institutional collaborative projects with research institutions in India and abroad.
The department is equipped with state of the art computer programming, biocomputing, genomics (sequencing and genome analysis) and proteomics (2D protein separation and protein purification) laboratories. The department also has several high end biology labs for the bioinformatics students. Hands on skills on basics are offered in microbiology, biochemistry, genetic engineering, immunology, database management, genomics, proteomics, and computer aided drug designing.
