Bio-informatics integrates the science of managing biological data using advanced computing techniques. Bio-informatics has advanced to a stage where it is playing an increasingly important role in the human genome project, drug discovery and prediction of protein structure and function. The course introduces the students to the basic concepts behind Bioinformatics, Computational Biology tools and Genomics. The hands-on sessions familiarize students with the details and use of the most commonly used tools and resources. An introduction to database design and the principles of programming languages helps to a create community of bioinformatics groups that venture into developing leading-edge research in this highly interdisciplinary field.
