  The post graduate course in bioinformatics was commenced in Bharathiar University during 2001 for the first time in India. In endorsement of the massive research activities performed by the Bioinformatics Division, it has become an independent department of the university during the academic year 2006. The department is engaged in various innovative projects in various disciplines supported by National and International agencies like DBT, UGC & ITTO and Japan. The department also conducts M.Phil and Ph.D courses.
The Postgraduate students passed out from the department were easily absorbed in various research Institutions not only in India but also in Foreign Countries. Many of our students are pursuing their Doctoral programs in countries like France, UK, Germany and Singapore. The Department of Biotechnology (DBT), India has approved a Center for Bioinformatics for the establishment of Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility (BIF) for the promotion of Biology Teaching through Bio-Informatics (BTBI) at our Department under the Biotechnology Information System Network (BTISnet). To its credit the Department also has collaboration with the Global Forest Information Service (GFIS), Vienna, Austria to exchange research information’s and Digital Biology laboratory USA. The centre providing various communication & computational facilities to users from the university and also from other institutions. Also arranged lectures by eminent scientist working in the area of bioinformatics. The centre introduced new PG Diploma course in Cheminformatics sponsored by UGC from this academic year.
