Career Opportunity and Educational Institutes


Career Opportunity

It is fast emerging interdisciplinary research area. It gives the opportunity to quickly and efficiently study heap of genetic sequences, chemical structure and other biological data and to use these databases to solve various problems and mysteries and uncover the wealth of the hidden biological information to enhance the standard of life for mankind. Bioinformatics has already started showing its profound impact on human health, agriculture, environment and energy. It is being used in the areas of molecular medicine to help produce better and more customized medicines to prevent or cure diseases, it has environmental benefit in identifying waste cleanup bacteria and in agriculture it can be used for producing high yield lows maintenance crops. The career prospects in the field have been steadily increasing with more and more use of information technology in the field of molecular biology.

Job prospects are in all sectors of biotechnology, pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences, in research institutions, hospital and industry. Challenges and career areas for any bioinformatician and bioinformaticist include sequence assembly, database design and information storage, management and integration, to develop sequence analysis software, proteomics (study 3D structure of protein and functions), gene mining, pharmacogenomics, informatics developer, biostatistics, computational chemist, bioanalytics and drug designing.

Cheminformatics is rapidly picking up the pace in India and foreign countries. Because of strong chemistry education sector with vast biochemical diversity along with well established ayurvedic system of medicine etc. India will be the hub of Cheminformatics very soon. Most of the patents for drugs are likely to expire around 2011. After that companies which will be having better drug discovery or Cheminformatics sector will concur the world drug market. With huge accumulation of gene and protein sequences database lots of career opportunities have opened in this field particularly in pharmacogenomics and gene chip designing.

Students with biosciences and chemistry in graduation and later learnt IT skills are now-a-days are eligible to apply in this field. But an IT person with strong knowledge of molecular biology is also preferred in bioinformatics.
