Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility
(Sponsored by Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India)



The Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility (BIF) was established in the college in the year 2006 with the financial support of the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India under the Biotechnology Information System Network (BTISnet) programme. The primary objective of this facility is to promote biology teaching through bioinformatics (BTBI). It provides services to the host faculty and other neighboring institutions of higher education in terms of Internet connectivity, retrieval of online and offline biological databases, bioinformatics software and tools for facilitating biological research particularly in the area of sequence and phylogenetic analysis, database development, molecular modeling and drug design, etc. It also periodically organizes hands-on trainings on various aspects of application of bioinformatics tools and molecular techniques in biological research.
