Ph.D Bioinformatics Details

Ph.D. degree program in bioinformatics is designed and initiated to provide a platform and advanced knowledge to the students and enable them to formulate hypothesis and research thinking. Comprehensive training to decipher the biological processes with the help of computational tools. Exponential growth and complexity of biological data can be translated effectively into knowledge by the use of computer-based approaches.
General objectives
The enormous influx of biological data can only be handled with better and faster computational approaches together with advanced knowledge in functional genomics and proteomics. Advanced concepts, structures, algorithms, and tools are required for effective processing and analysis. Specialized courses in molecular biology, bioinformatics, and computation are needed to achieve these objectives.
Admission Requirements:
M.Phil/MS in Bioinformatics/Biological sciences/Computer Sciences/Biotechnology/Biochemistry/Molecular Biology/Computational Chemistry or equivalent in relevant disciplines (deficiency courses to be completed if needed).
GPA 3.0 or above.
Subject GRE/NTS or in-house written test.
4-5 years (course work may be completed in four semesters and two to four year for research work).
