About the Course:
Bioinformatics is the interface between the two most rapidly advancing fields - biological and computational sciences. It is a scientific discipline and an asset of skills that has now become one of the most important information gathering and analysis tools. Proper data collection, data mining, and knowledge building tools are plyaing more and more role in current research and clinical applications. Bioinformatics is an emerging field which has broad range of application to molecular biology, pharmacology, biotechnology, forensic science, drug designing, and various other disciplines.
Today there is large, unmet, need for professionals to analyze data scientifically in order to extract the biological knowledge hidden in them for the general benefit of mankind with a working knowledge of the biological sciences and computational methods.
This M.Sc. Program in Bioinformatics is designed to address these needs through interdisciplinary training that bridges gap and meets the demand of pharmaceutical industry and strengthens research collaborations between academia and industry.Faculty:

About the Course:
The awareness about role of food in maintaining good health and prevention of disease has increased dramatically and hence there is a huge market opportunity for nutraceuticals and industry will need more and more trained manpower. Nutraceutical is a nutritional product that provides medicinal benefits in addition to its regular nutritional value (nutrition + pharmaceutical). Nutraceuticals may refer to foods, dietary supplements, medicinal foods as well as functional foods that may contribute to prevention and / or treatment of disease.Eligibility:
