  Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility (BIF) for Biology Teaching Through Bioinformatics (BTBI)  

DBT has launched a new scheme under its BTISnet in the year 2006-07, namely Development of Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facilities (BIF) to promote innovation in Biology Teaching through Bioinformatics (BTBI). Through this scheme so far eighty one educational institutions ( were extended Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility supports which include computer and communication infrastructure, software, databases and training resources. The goal of this scheme is to expose teachers and students to real-world of science and the use of bioinformatics (Cyber bioscience) in solving hard core biological problems. Tutorials are available online to help students and teachers, learn how to navigate those resources through online and gather data that can be applied to original questions. Several sites provide free and unhindered access to biological information resources which include lecture materials, video clippings, demonstration and so on. These resources would promote understating of advanced biology and develop interest to the students, teachers and promote quality human resource to undertake challenging research in the filed of modern biology.
