About the

Bioinformatics is a scientific discipline that deals with the retrieval, storage, processing, analysis, and management of biological information through computational techniques. It uses mathematics, biology, and information technology to understand the biological importance of an extensive variety of data. The global bioinformatics market was valued at $2.9 billion in 2012 and is poised to reach $7.5 billion by 2017 at a CAGR of 20.9%. The growth of the bioinformatics market is driven by decrease in cost of DNA sequencing, increasing government initiatives and funding, and growing use of bioinformatics in drug discovery and biomarkers development processes.

The B. Tech. Bioinformatics and Data Science program typically begins with a strong foundation in core biological principles and computer fundamentals. As students progress, they delve into specialized courses that bridge the gap between biology and computational sciences. Bioinformatics modules, often a focal point of the curriculum, immerse students in the world of computational tools, algorithms, and databases specifically tailored for biological data analysis.

A key feature of the B.Tech. Bioinformatics and Data Science curriculum is its hands-on approach to learning. Students engage in practical sessions, gaining proficiency in bioinformatics software, programming languages, and statistical tools essential for processing and interpreting large datasets. These practical experiences often extend to research projects, where students apply their knowledge to real-world biological problems, reinforcing their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.
