Bioinformatics is a new fast growing field of today. It is inter-disciplinary field that develops methods and software tools for understanding of biological data. Bioinformatics combine biology, computer science, information engineering, mathematics and statistics to analyze and interpret biological data. There are several applications of bioinformatics with special reference to Computational biology, biomedical sciences, drug design and discovery and clinical studies. Jobs opportunities are available is research labs, hospitals, pharmaceutical industries, IT sector and forensic science.
The department will soon initiate MS and PHD programs to conduct methodological research and the prevention and treatment of diseases.
