Panjab University is one of the renowned universities of India which was established in the year 1882 at Lahore and after independence shifted to Chandigarh. The University has always taken the lead in starting new courses/departments. The Centre of Systems Biology and Bioinformatics was established at Panjab University, Chandigarhin 2007.


Key facts:

  • With the coming up of new innovations/technology, Systems Biology and Bioinformatics has not only come out with supremacy in today's scientific world but also have an impact on day-to-day life. The frontier of biological and medical sciences is full of opportunity today. It is widely appreciated that present-day biomedical researchers are confronted by vast amounts of data from genome sequencing; microscopy; high-throughput analytical techniques for DNA, RNA, and proteins; and a host of other new experimental technologies. The Systems Biology and Bioinformatics programme is offered at the Panjab University.
  • Coupled with advances in computing power, this flow of information enables scientists to computationally model and analyze biological systems in novel ways. Therefore, bioinformatics is seen as an important ingredient in biomedical sciences and their related industries. The primary objective of the bioinformatics research program is to inspire new research in data mining through computational analysis of biomedical data.
