INSTITUTIONAL BIOLOGY PROJECT
Project DescriptionBioinformatics is an interdisciplinary research area, which may be described as conceptualizing biology in terms of molecules using tools of informatics and allied techniques, with an aim to understand and organize the information associated with these molecules to answer some of the larger questions in biology. The bioinformatics spectrum ranges from collection & organization of biological databases to complex solutions including Gene-finding, Protein sequence analysis, Prediction of 3D structure, Structure-function analysis with some immediate applications such as Rational Drug design .
Being located in a premier institution in the country, the centre plays a significant role in disseminating much of the information required for various aspects of research in life sciences locally and in the whole country.
