Bioinformatics Course at Indian Biosciences and Research Institute

1,072

Published on

Bioinformatics is the study of the inherent structure of biological information and biological systems. It brings together the avalanche of systematic biological data (e.g. genomes) with the analytic theory and practical tools of mathematics and computer science. Bioinformatics is a rapidly evolving and developing field both in terms of breadth of scope of useful applications and in terms of depth of what can be accomplished with the mission providing the training and knowledge in Bioinformatics IBRI has introduced the courses in Bioinformatics.

Transcript of "Bioinformatics Course at Indian Biosciences and Research Institute"

  1. 1. Bioinformatics Opportunities By Ajay Vishwakrma
  2. 2. Bioinformatics?Bioinformatics is a sub-field of the Biological SciencesBioinformatics is highly interdisciplinary and draws upon the following areas of study to solve biological problems: Applied Mathematics Statistics Computer ScienceAlso referred to as Computational Biology
  3. 3. Bioinformatics - Future of Biological Research 21st century is considered to be information technology era that has created an immense impact in every sphere of life leading to knowledge transfer i.e. outsourcing of information. Information is Knowledge and Today’s economy is Knowledge economy. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary subject between biological information and IT. Recent developments of the sciences have produced a wealth of experimental data of sequences and three-dimensional structures of biological macromolecules. Bioinformatics has been defined as the science of examining the structure and function of genes and proteins through the use of computational analysis, statistics, and pattern recognition. A number of recent workforce studies have shown that there is a high current and unmet demand for people trained to various levels of expertise in bioinformatics, from technicians and technical librarians to developers of new and improved methodologies and applications
  4. 4. Course Aims & Objectives The concepts of computer science that relate to problems in biological sciences. Commercial and academic perspectives on bioinformatics. The impact of bioinformatics on the methodologies used in biological science. The influence biological science has on computing science.
  5. 5. Future and Career Opportunities of Bioinformatics Bioinformatics: Key to Science and Technologys Future Bioinformatics is an emerging interdisciplinary area of Science andTechnology, encompassing a systematic development and application ofIT solution to handle biological information or data obtained byexperiments, modeling, database, search and instrumentation. It touchesall areas of biology, with application to genome analysis, proteinstructure, prediction, target identification, drug-design, metabolomics andsystems biology. It is of central importance in the genomic and post-genomic age because of the vast amounts of information that arebecoming available from different disciplines for example-sequencing ofhuman, bacterial, rice genomes have unraveled plethora of informationwhich can be put to best use by using this technology.
  6. 6. Path Breaking Discoveries Biological processes in organisms How these processes go wrong in diseases Gene-based drugs discovery Drug designing Disease Diagnosis Pharmacogenomics Toxicogenomics
  7. 7. Bioinformatics promises tremendous potential and plays a crucialRole in the future development of science and technology and jobopportunitiesResearch institutions.Pharmaceutical companies.Chemical industries.Agriculture and allied industries working to expand the realm of information. Bioinformatics is a career of the future. In India alone, Biotechnology and Bioinformatics is the fastest growing employment sector after computers and multi-media. Some of India’s biggest industrial groups are entering the Bioinformatics field, focusing on research in industrial, agricultural and medical biotechnology, clearly signaling a change in the market dynamics in this sector. Reliance Industries is building a new, world class research and development center, near Mumbai, encompassing research laboratories for all disciplines, laboratories for contract
  8. 8. The following are the job profiles in Biotech, Pharmaceutical and IT industry: Genomics Head ( Agilent Company) Proteomics Structural and Functional Analyst Bioinformatics Faculty or Head Software Developer Database Management Statistical Analytical Bioinformatics Tool Developer Research Assistant Bioinformatics Consultant R& D Sector Agricultural Sciences Computational Biologist
  9. 9. Benefits of Course: New molecular genetics and information technologies have enabled biologists to produce and to access large and informative data sets. The courses will provide an introductory understanding of the databases and methods used in computational molecular data analysis. The main benefit of the course is to provide an insight into the value of rapid access to scientific information for education and research purposes. The human genome project has been hailed as one of the greatest achievements in scientific history. To date, vast amounts of public, private, human and financial resources have been invested into the sequencing of the genome. Now that this has been achieved, the emphasis is shifting towards using this new information to: develop new drugs create new diagnostics tools arrive at a better understanding of disease.
  10. 10. Bioinformatics – the application of IT to biological problems – is essential to achieve the goals.These courses aim to provide: The concepts of computer science that relate to problems in biological sciences. Commercial and academic perspectives on Bioinformatics. The impact of Bioinformatics on the methodologies used in biological science. The influence biological science has on computing science. The course will be relevant to a wide range of industries that involve knowledge of the networks and databases in Bioinformatics and the use and development of computer software and to become aware of the tools and techniques used in research and in applications.
