Bioinformatics is a new field of biology, this course is made up of information technology and biotechnology. This is a specialized course. Through this, it is being used in the fields of gene discovery, genome assembly, drug design, drug discovery, protein structure alignment, protein structure prediction, etc. It is especially used in molecular biology. This is a computer technical application.
Essential Qualification - You can get admission in it after passing 12th from the Science stream. It has growth potential in India. With this subject in graduation and post-graduation, you need to know about Microbiology, Pharmacy, Veterinary Science, Maths, and Physics.
In this, you can study B.Sc in Bioinformatics, B.Tech in Bioinformatics, B.Sc (Hons.) in Bioinformatics and BE in Bioinformatics.
In this field, bioinformaticists analyze biological data through computer technology. Along with this, their job is to store data and also to merge data. Through this, in particular, what kind of changes are done in the genes of a plant, to find out the gene group responsible for the deadly disease, help in the preparation of medicine, etc. It is an emerging interdisciplinary research area and is increasingly used to enhance the quality of life.
After studying in this field, you can make a career in Sequence Assembling, Sequence Analysis, Clinical Pharmacologist, Computational Chemistry. In this field, you can work in companies like Dr. Reddy Laboratories, Landsky Solutions, Innovis. Many private medical and institutes also hire professionals related to this field. They also work to improve the quality of medicines by doing research.
