The author has given the details regarding the fellowship on Bioinformatics and Biophysics research through the recognized colleges of JNTU at New Delhi. In this regard, it may be stated that in Biophysics the analysis of genome science sequence data is being widely used, and in bioinformatics, the analysis of gene variation and prediction of gene structure and functions are taught. Bioinformatics is rapidly emerging as important in biomedical research. With new findings of bioinformatics research, healthcare can be vastly benefited in the case of new diagnostics, therapeutics, and also vaccines. Mostly the infectious diseases which the world and the country are going through can be understood in a better way by going into the details of transmission cycles. The adverse patient reactions can be well monitored and given the scope for further evaluation through the bioinformatics technique. On the other hand, the advantages of studying biophysics would help to understand life at the molecular level in the human body which gives rise to various diseases and the treatment meted out for that.
