B.Sc – Bioinformatics (Biology, Computer Science and Mathematics –BCsM)

Overview of the Program

Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data. As an interdisciplinary field of science, bioinformatics combines biology, computer science, mathematics and statistics to analyze and interpret biological data.

The primary goal of bioinformatics is to increase the understanding of biological processes. What sets it apart from other approaches, however, is its focus on developing and applying computationally intensive techniques to achieve this goal. Examples include: pattern recognition, data mining, machine learning algorithms, and visualization. Major research efforts in the field include sequence alignment, gene finding, genome assembly, drug design, drug discovery, protein structure alignment, protein structure prediction, prediction of gene expression and protein–protein interactions, genome-wide association studies, the modeling of evolution and cell division/mitosis.

Bioinformatics now entails the creation and advancement of databases, algorithms, computational and statistical techniques, and theory to solve formal and practical problems arising from the management and analysis of biological data.

Over the past few decades, rapid developments in genomic and other molecular research technologies and developments in information technologies have combined to produce a tremendous amount of information related to molecular biology. Bioinformatics is the name given to these mathematical and computing approaches used to glean understanding of biological processes.

Common activities in bioinformatics include mapping and analyzing DNA and protein sequences, aligning DNA and protein sequences to compare them, and creating and viewing 3-D models of protein structures.

The School of Applied Sciences at REVA UNIVERSITY has designed to offer B.Sc. Bioinformatics as an undergraduate degree programme to create motivated, enthusiastic, creative and thinking graduates to fill the roles bioinformatics professionals.

Indian economy is experiencing an upward growth right from the beginning of 21st century except for a short stint during the mid of present decade necessitating well qualified science graduates to work as teachers, professors, scientists, professionals and often administrators. At present more than 400 million youth are below 18 years of age and government is committed to increase the GER to 30% by 2020 thus there will be too many youth with varied educational aspirations. The B.Sc. –Bioinformatics programme designed will act as a foundation and first degree to prepare bioinformatics analysts who could assist biotech industries in gene finding, genome assembly, drug design, drug discovery, protein structure alignment, protein structure prediction, prediction of gene expression and protein–protein interactions, genome-wide association studies, the modeling of evolution and cell division/mitosis.

The B.Sc. Bioinformatics programme at the School of Applied Sciences, has been developed by the members of the faculty based on interactions with various universities, research establishments and industries in India and abroad.

The curriculum is outcome based and it comprises required theoretical concepts and practical skills in the domain. By undergoing this programme, students develop critical, analytical thinking and problem solving abilities for a smooth transition from academic to real-life work environment. In addition, students are trained in communication skills and interdisciplinary topics to enhance their scope. The above mentioned features of the programme, advanced teaching and learning resources, and experience of the faculty members with their strong connections with industry and research organizations makes this programme unique.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The programme acts as a foundation degree and helps to develop critical, analytical and problem solving skills at first level. The foundation degree makes the graduates employable in scientific organisations and also to assume administrative positions in various types of organisations. With further acquisition of higher level degrees help the graduates to pursue a career in academics or scientific organisations as a researcher.

The Programme Educational Objectives are to prepare the students to:

  • work as computational biologist and analysts to help engineering, medical and scientists solve scientific problems
  • act as administrators in public, private and government organisations or business administrators or entrepreneurs with further training and education
  • pursue masters and doctoral research degrees to work in colleges, universities as professors or as scientists in research establishments

Programme Outcomes (POs)

After undergoing this programme, a student will be able to:

  • Apply fundamental knowledge of Biology, Mathematics and Computer Science to help researchers solve problems in biology
  • Design informatics algorithms and create bioinformatics databases
  • Use complex algorithms, computer databases and software
  • Manipulate and present genomic data
  • Organize and keep databases up-to-date.
  • Control quality adhering to specific protocols.
  • Work as a member of a scientific project team and communicate across teams
  • Conduct himself as a responsible citizen
  • Choose an appropriate online programmes for further learning, participate in seminars and conferences
