M.Sc. Bioinformatics


M.Sc. Bioinformatics:
M.Sc. Bioinformatics is a two years post graduate (four semesters) programme including the six month project work.
Bioinformatics is a ultra modern field of biosciences that applies statistics to molecular biology and emerged scientific branch for the computational analysis and storage of biological data.
Subjects usually studied under this degree are Fundamentals of computer system and Programming, Biomathmatics, Biological Database System, Microbiology & Immunology, Genetic Engeering, Molecular Biology, Sequence Analysis, Structural Biology & Molecular Modeling , Statistical Analysis and Optimization , Operating Systems & Object Oriented Programming, Biocomputing Programming, Biochemistry, Genomics, Proteomics & Systems Biology, Biodiversity and Ecological Informatics, Genoinformatics, Applications & Techniques of Bioinformatics etc.

Eligibility Conditions & Intake (Number of Seats): 20 seats
The eligibility for admission in M.Sc. Bioinformatics is Bachelor’s degree in Biology group (CBZ)/Bioinformatics/Biotechnology/Microbiology/Computer Science/Mathematics/ Statistics/ BMLT with 50% marks. The No. of seats are 20. Admissions are taken as per reservation norms for different categories.

Job Opportunities:

Bioinformatics is one of the leading course in modern technical era, it is growing at rapid pace in India and abroad. The only thing require is its awareness in India. Bioinformatics has laid the foundation of proteomics and genomics. It is one of the emerging field in Biotechnology, Microbiology and other sciences. Most of the Bioinformatics professionals are employed in Biotech, Biomedical Sciences and Pharmaceutical companies. Even students can work with leading Scientific Research Institutes. Biomedical and Biotechnical products manufacturing industries are employing a large number of professionals from Bioinformatics. Some of the top Indian companies hiring in Bioinformatics are Reliance, IBM life sciences, Biomedical Informatics and Silicon Genetics and Tessella. It has very good carrier opportunities for students in India and abroad. Government and Private universities / colleges, and R&D institutions in central and state govt. departments, as Research Scientists/Post Doctoral Fellows in India and abroad.

Our students have obtained jobs in Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical, and Chemical, industries, Reliance, IBM life sciences, Biomedical Informatics and Silicon Genetics and Tessella, Wipro, Cysco System, Ranbaxy, Himalaya Biotech, Charak Pharmaceuticals, Baxal Pharmaceutical, Panacea Biotech, Adarsh Bewerages in Government and Private R&D institutions related to agriculture, medical and environmental studies (DRDO, INMAS, CIMAP, CDRI, AIIMS, NII, New Delhi, IGIB, New Delhi, IARI, New Delhi, IITs, CDFD Hyderabad, IMTECH, Chandigarh, C-DEC etc.); in central and state govt. departments; in Government and Private universities and colleges; and as Research Scientists/Post Doctoral Fellows/Research students in abroad such as Germany, USA, UK, Canada, Taiwan, China, France, Spain, UAE, etc.

All rules for examination pattern pass percentage and admissions shall be the same as for the post-graduate courses in the Faculty of Science on the University campus. Minimum eligibility for admission in this two year M.Sc. (Bioinformatics) course shall be B.Sc. (Biology group). There shall be 50% internal and 50% external assessment in all the aforesaid courses. The pattern of internal assessment shall be decided by the Department, however, it will mainly be based on tests, quizzes, seminars, term papers, group discussions and home assignments. Specialization shall be allowed in the fields of Biological Data Base System and Unix Operating System. It shall start from the very first semester and the student will have to complete a project related to his / her specialization in the final fourth semester for a period of 4 to 6 months. The student may be allowed to complete the project out side the University. At the end of the fourth semester the project report shall be submitted. It will be jointly evaluated by the Board of Examiners. One of the supervisors may be opted from outside the University where the candidate has completed the project. The candidate will make an open short presentation and will defend his/her experimental design, results and conclusions. The Department shall be free to alter the sequence of the courses in any semester depending upon the resources available.
