Bioinformatics is the application of Information Technology to the field of Biological Processes. 

For the life science students, the program serves as an entry into IT industry. Similarly, the students from Engineering background (Biotechnology & IT) take this as an opportunity to enter into Biotechnology profession. 

The demand for bioinformatics professionals is very high; but the industry faces a short fall in skilled bioinformaticians. Here lies the opportunity for opting a specialized and customized course in bioinformatics. Our curriculum has been formulated to meet the industrial requirements and to equip the participant an ‘industry ready’ candidate. 

Companies like BioBase, Biocon, RevenueMed, Paragon Biomedicals etc. need such bioinformaticians and hence the participants taking this programme seriously will get an opportunity to enter such companies.
