BTISNET - Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility
  ACHARYA NAGARJUNA UNIVERSITY, NAGARJUNANAGAR, ANDHRA PRADESH.
 
    During the first 6 months of the Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility Centre after its establishment at Department of Biotechnology, Acharya Nagarjuna University, Guntur, during this period, it has initiated its activities by providing immediate required facilities to the students and researchers in this area. The Centre has initiated its various activities by training the students in bringing basic awareness on bioinformatics, facility for pursuing PG dissertation research work in the field of Bioinformatics and publishing relevant articles.

The establishment of this centre has facilitated to create a forum for interaction of students and teachers of various institutions/colleges located in the districts of Guntur, Prakasham and Krishna, which was spread over several rural areas with the University teachers and provide training in Computational Biology to under graduate and post-graduate students in this area by conducting bioinformatics workshops and seminars at University BIF centre. It is providing mentorship to within the University departments of Botany, Zoology, Microbiology and Biochemistry and providing teaching facility of Bioinformatics in the post graduate curriculum. Bioinformatics Facility establishment has facilitated the University Science department to provide the innovation in biology teaching and is well supported by the bioinformatics tools and resources for the enhancement of learning capabilities in Biology and Biotechnology subjects. And it has also initiated multi-institutional consortium projects in bioinformatics to address the various specific problems through bioinformatics approach. Bioinformatics and experimental biology collaborative projects are being considered, so as to improve the contribution of bioinformatics in wet lab biotechnology research. The University has introduced a PG Diploma Bioinformatics course through CDC department. It promotes the research in use of computational tools for molecular biology, genetics, protein chemistry, and biochemistry research at different levels of education and center offers in-depth workshops on topics ranging from DNA, RNA and protein sequence analysis to database searching, genomic predictions and molecular modeling
