M. Tech Bioinformatics

Overview Of The Program

• Introduction:
Bioinformatics is a scientific discipline that deals with the retrieval, storage, processing, analysis, and management of biological information through computational techniques. It uses mathematics, biology, and information technology to understand the biological importance of an extensive variety of data. Bioinformatics technologies are used in various pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors. It is majorly used in the medical sector, driven by the increasing use of bioinformatics for the drug discovery and development process. The global bioinformatics market was valued at $2.9 billion in 2012 and is poised to reach $7.5 billion by 2017 at a CAGR of 20.9%. The growth of the bioinformatics market is driven by decrease in cost of DNA sequencing, increasing government initiatives and funding, and growing use of bioinformatics in drug discovery and biomarkers development processes.
• Objectives
The Bioinformatics course provides student with a broad and flexible education in understanding life science and how computers can help in understanding the information/ data in a well structured manner. It exposes the students to various biological instrumentation techniques, Molecular Biology techniques, specialized techniques to interpret and analyze biological data and research, Programming and Database Management, Algorithm Development and Data analysis and Artificial Intelligence.
