Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary research area. It is a fusion of computing, biotechnology and biological sciences. Bioinformatics is poised to one of the most prodigious growth areas in the next two decades. Being the interface between the most rapidly advancing fields of biological and computational sciences, it is immense in scope and vast in applications. Currently, the field is undergoing major expansion. In addition to providing more reliable and more rigorous computational tools for sequence, structural, and functional analysis.
In Holkar Science College, the Bioinformatics department was established in 2002-2003 for promotion of the teaching of Bioinformatics as one of the subjects at graduate level.
In 2013-14 Bioinformatics become an independent department .In addition to regular teaching UG and research, the department has made significant contribution in making the experimental techniques (Structural bioinformatics , System biology, Computational biology) available to teachers of various colleges through workshops and other means. The department aims at making knowledge of Bioinformatics available at reasonably cost for all level of student.
