Objective : The two years Distance
Learning Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Bioinformatics
conducted by The Global Open University, Nagaland has been
designed for meeting the demand of the growing needs of
experts in the fields of bioinformatics, genetics, molecular
biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, micro-biology,
structural bioinformatics, biocomputing languages,
bioinformatics software, algorithmic bioinformatics etc.
Career in Bioinformatics
Bioinformatics is the application of
computer science and information technology to the field of
biology. 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 the techniques like
pattern recognition, data mining, machine based learning
algorithms and visualisation to achieve this goal. Major
research efforts in this field are sequence alignment, gene
finding, genome, assembly, drug design, drug discovery,
protein structure alignment, prediction etc.
