ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT:
Bioinformatics Division of Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India has undertaken a very optimistic programme to develop Bioinformatics Centres throughout the country under the scheme named BITS-Net. All the centres are supposed to gather biological information on broad-based scale and prepare information packages to be exchanged among the centres and also to be provided to the people who are actively engaged in research, teaching and business especially from the field of pharmaceuticals and agriculture.
T.M. Bhagalpur University, Bhagalpur has been selected as a centre and accordingly sufficient grants have been released for the establishment of bioinformatics centre. This is the only centre of Bioinformatics established in the State of Bihar under the National Bioinformatics Network.
The University has already taken prudent steps towards the establishment of this centre in view of significance and fast broadening horizon of the subject and as an emerging tool in modern biological scenario.
