Bioinformatics is a multidisciplinary science that analyses, understands and creates the model of life as an evolving information processing phenomenon for maximizing natural energy utilization. It uses the principles and models of Mathematics, Medical and Pharmaceutical concepts, computer programmes and tools for understanding and analyzing biological processes, human diseases and identifying new molecular targets for drug discovery. The two year M.Tech program in Information Technology with Bioinformatics specialization began in 2002.
