i) To provide a national bioinformation network designed to bridge the inter-disciplinary gaps on biotechnology information and establish link among scientists in organisations involved in R&D and manufacturing activities in the country.

ii) To build information resources, prepare databases on biotechnology and to develop relevant information handling tools and techniques.

iii) To continuously assess information requirements, create and improve necessary infrastructure and to provide informatics based support and services to the national community of users working in biotechnology and allied areas.

iv) To coordinate efforts to access Biotechnology information worldwide including establishing linkages with some of the international resources of Biotechnology information (e.g. Databanks on genetic materials, published literature, patents, and other information of scientific and commercial value).

v) To undertake research into advanced methods of computer-based information processing for analysing the structure and function of biologically important molecules.

vi) To evolve and implement programmes on education of users and training of information scientists responsible for handling of biotechnology information and its applications to biotechnology research and development.

vii) To establish regional and international cooperation for exchange of scientific information and expertise in biotechnology through the development of appropriate network arrangements.

viii) To build networking capabilities of BTISnet in terms of speed and capacity of the network to make fast INTERNET access feasible at all nodes of the network.
