M.Sc. - Bioinformatics M.Sc. Bioinfo

School of Life & Basic Sciences

Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field. It merges biology, computer science and information technology and is defined as an interface between the biosciences and the computational sciences. Arising out of the high demands for the need of information analysis, Bioinformatics is emerging very fast and the study of management in biology and biotechnology will help in dealing with the subject matter. Bioinformatics combines the tools and the techniques of subjects like mathematics, computer science and biology to understand biological significance of any data. A few of the main areas of bioinformatics are data mining, analysis for the genome projects, and computer databases for biological research.

Career Prospects

Bioinformatics has a profound impact in fields as varied as health, agriculture and the environment, besides energy and biotechnology. It also has an impact in biomedical research and development. The field of bioinformatics is also used in molecular medicine to produce better, and more customized medicines for preventing diseases. Besides, it has the environmental benefits also in identifying the waste clean-up bacteria. It is used in the fields of agriculture for producing the high yield and low maintenance crops as well.
