OVERVIEW

 

‘Bioinformatics’, is an interdisciplinary field that integrates biology with information technology, statistics, modelling etc.

Decoding genes and proteins has helped us unravel the ‘blueprint’ of several life-forms- from pathogenic micro-organisms to endangered mammals!

 

This discipline has made it possible to unravel secrets of many of these organisms. Today, a huge diversity of organisms exist on earth, which are yet unexplored. Bioinformatics can equip us with knowledge and tools to solve real-life problems like find cures for deadly infections, harness some useful microbes for essential products like vitamins, insulin, etc. and help conserve our rich ecosystems. 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Understand the diversity in genes and proteins among various organisms

  • Connect existing knowledge in science to solve problems and be exposed to some of the latest platforms and technologies

  • Apply critical thinking for completing tasks offered by this course.

  • Use simple online tools for obtaining gene and protein sequences and use software to understand the evolution of organisms

  • Apply skills of collaboration and communication for problem-solving.

  • Explore career options linked to health care, diagnostics, drug development forensics and evolution
