BTISNET - Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility
  UNIVERSITY OF JAMMU, JAMMU
 
    The Bioinformatics Centre at University of Jammu, was set up in January 2007 as the Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility (Training Code: JUBIF-01) under the Biotechnology Information System Network (BTISnet) programme of the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India. During the first year, we set up the Bioinformatics lab and made it functional for the use of students, research scholars, faculty and research scientists.

The Centre organized symposiums on Cheminformatics, hands on training sessions and awareness programmes on applications of Bioinformatics in solving the biological problems. Bioinformatics is one of the courses in the M. Sc programmes in Biotechnology, Biochemistry and Microbiology running in the University of Jammu since last several years. The Bioinformatics centre continued to extend full support in conducting various hands on sessions and imparting teaching a full fledged course in these programmes. The Bioinformatics Centre offered the dedicated internet facility and training to the students, research scholars for using the online and offline software, tools to assist in their research programmes.

Major research activities    
During 2011-12, the teachers and students of Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University and of various Govt. colleges of the State, students of INSPIRE programme of Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India, visited the Bioinformatics Centre, School of Biotechnology, University of Jammu.

A two days symposium and hands on session on Cheminformatics was organized by the Bioinformatics Centre on 23rd and 24th September, 2011. During the Symposium, several lectures and Technical Sessions were held. Renowned Scientists from various Universities and Biotech companies delivered the lectures. The Technical sessions had presentations on Cheminformatics and Life Science softwares. The symposium provided a wonderful opportunity for the young researchers to learn new techniques of this discipline. This interaction helped them to organize their future research in a more meaningful manner.

The coordinator also delivered lectures in the Departments of Physics, Computer Sciences and Information Technology and Environmental Sciences, Botany, Zoology of the University of Jammu and also in the affiliated colleges.

The Centre organized short training sessions and awareness programmes on applications of Bioinformatics in solving the biological problems. The Bioinformatics centre extended full support in conducting various hands on sessions and was involved in teaching full fledged course on Bioinformatics in M. Sc Biotechnology, M. Sc Biochemistry and M. Sc Microbiology programmes of the University. The Bioinformatics Centre offered the dedicated internet facility and training to the students, research scholars for using the online and offline software, tools to assist in their research programmes.
