Postgraduate Diploma in Bioinformatics

Course Approval Number: KP/JPS(N/545/7/0032)1/19
Mode of Study: Full-time (1 year) / Part-time (up to 3 years)
Intake: September

Bioinformatics is essential for analysis and interpretation of complex and large biological datasets generated by functional studies and high throughout technologies, such as next-generation sequencing. It is used to propose the next sets of experiments and, most importantly, to derive better understanding of biological processes. Biological data and the databases storing them are increasing at an unparalleled rate. Experimental approaches to study the large data pool for knowledge discovery are time-consuming, costly and often impractical.

Through a combination of bioinformatics and experimental approaches, it is possible to select key experiments and help optimize experimental deisgn. Computer algorithms are increasingly used to speed-up the process of knowledge discovery by helping to identify critical experiments for testing hypothesis built upon the results of computational screening.
