1 hour a day | Grades 9-12 | Duration: 12 sessions
Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that integrates biology with information technology, statistics, modelling and several others. Decoding genes and proteins has helped humans zoom in at the ‘blueprints’ of several life-forms, from pathogenic micro-organisms to endangered mammals.
Bioinformatics makes it possible to unravel secrets of many of these organisms. Today, a huge diversity of organisms exist on earth, which are yet unexplored. Bioinformatics can equip us with knowledge and tools to solve real-life problems like find cures for deadly infections, harness some useful microbes for essential products like vitamins, insulin etc. and help conserve our rich ecosystems.
