On successful completion of the Bioinformatics MSc programme offered at Bharathiar University, you will be able to understand the basic principles and concepts of biology, computer science and mathematics and apply the knowledge in Bioinformatics such as computational biology, chemical principles that underlie biochemistry, molecular biology and genomics.


The field of bioinformatics is playing an increasingly large role in the study of fundamental biomedical problems. The challenging tasks of biologist on analysing gene discovery, design of molecular modelling, site directed mutagenesis and experiments of other types can be resolved previously with respect to the structure and function of bio molecules. Human kind is on the brink of another revolution. There is no doubt that the mapping of the human genome, completed in June 2000, is one of the greatest scientific advancements in history. This breakthrough in biological research was made possible by advancements in using Bioinformatics and computational Biology.
