Bioinformatics is attaining btiz significance in the life sciences research and industry and hitherto unexplored areas of biology. Research in biotechnology, which is highly knowledge and capital intensive, has generated a deluge of information in this decade.
Biotechnology Information System Network (BTISNET) | Department of Biotechnology
To make use of this information effectively, there is a need ihdia high speed and large bandwidth network. This resource sharing helps in enhancing the value and usefulness of the BTIS, the only true resource sharing network in India.
BTISnet in a Nutshell. BTISnet a potential scientific network in the country comprises of more than institutions having capable human resources and state of art infrastructure to carry out intensive research in bioinformatics and computational biology.
Information on Biotechnology Information System Network
More than subject specific databases are currently available on the BTISnet. Eight new centres have been added to the BTISnet. Through this network it is now much simpler to generate and implement programs like biotech hubs, overseas associateship etc.
These Centres are well equipped with state of art infrastructure to support research. Each centre is responsible for developing a database in the identified thrust areas.
Biotechnology Information Network
Some of these efforts have received international recognition. The CoE at the Bose Institute, Kolkata is specialising in btus areas like genome analysis, regulatory RNA stem cells, genomics and structural bioinformatics. The CoE at JNU, New Delhi is a part of the School of Computational and Integrative Sciences, with a major objective of development of human resource through teaching and research in the frontier area of computational biology, bioinformatics and systems biology.
The CoE at Madurai Kamaraj UniversityMadurai is specialising in the areas like structural bioinformatics, proteomics, data mining and computer aided drug design. The Centre has developed 3 major databases namely viral protein structural database, antigen antibody genomics and viral genome infia.
The bioinformatics centres are being extensively used for intensive research by the hosts and neighbouring institutions. The Department of Biotechnology is also supporting long-term teaching programs on bioinformatics and BIOGRID will be useful in sharing teaching materials, to deliver lectures through video conferencing-virtual classrooms besides synergizing research in biotechnology and bioinformatics.
The advantage of mirroring networrk databases in India is to provide unhindered mining of high quality data from well established primary and secondary information sources.
The BTISnetwork will act as a knowledge pathway for discoveries in biotechnology and bioinformatics.
