Bioinformatics is a new scientific discipline with roots in computer science, statistics and molecular biology. Bioinformaticians apply information technology to store, retrieve and manipulate these data and employ statistical methods capable of analyzing large amounts of biological data to predict gene functions and to demonstrate the relationship between genes and proteins. The MSc programme in Bioinformatics at REVA University provides students with a BSc in Life Sciences or Computer Sciences with skills necessary to manipulate large biological datasets, the ability to analyze these data and the ability to develop new bioinformatics tools.
At REVA University the Bioinformatics programme focuses on the practical application of Bioinformatics. Depending on previous BSc degree, candidates are requested to follow supplementary introduction courses. Students with BSc in Computer Science follow courses in molecular biology and students with BSc in Life Science courses on programming and computer science.
The curriculum commences with training in programming, data science and elementary bioinformatics tools aimed at using existing software to collect, analyze and interpret DNA and protein sequence information and moves on to more open challenges. Afterwards students follow Molecular Systems Biology.
Advanced bioinformatics courses deal with structural and functional genomics, transcriptomics and DNA array technology data, as well as algorithm development and machine learning. Alternatively, students can focus on systems biology.’ The aim of the program is to produce postgraduates with – advanced knowledge and understanding of Bioinformatics tools and softwares; higher order critical, analytical, problem solving and attitudinal skills (transferable) to meet expectations of biotech industry, academics and research institutions or to take up entrepreneurial route.
Bioinformatics is a new fast growing field of research poorly served by traditional curricula in Life Sciences. As the demand has outpaced the supply of bioinformaticians the first job after graduation is often a PhD project at a research institute or at an University in or outside the India. About one third will still be employed as a scientist at an University or research center. Others will choose for a career at research-oriented pharmaceutical, biotechnology, software and data science companies. The scope includes the opportunity for students to pursue their career as
- Bioinformatics Internship
- Bioinformatics analyst
- Data Curator
- Software developer
- Data scientist
- PhD Program
- Bioinformatics systems adminstrator
- Bioinformatics Research Fellow
- Bioinformatics Research Assistant
- Bioinformatics Research Associate
