Bio-Informatics Centre

The School of Computational and Integrative Sciences (SC&IS), Jawharlal Nehru University (JNU) since 2010 was the culmination of the progress made by the DBT supported Bioinformatics Centre-BIC, since the year 1989 and its up-gradation to the School of Information Technology (SIT) in 2001. The School is recognized by the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) as a Centre of Excellence (COE) in Computational Biology & Bioinformatics and by the University Grants Commission (UGC), in its XI Plan, as a Centre for Complex Systems Studies. An initial effort of the School to provide services through BIC was augmented by the Communication and Information Services (CIS) which facilitates electronic communication, internet facilities, video meetings etc and the High Performance Computational Facility, which scaled computational infrastructure required for the entire university.
To promote inter-disciplinary goal-oriented research and innovate in the areas broadly related to computational sciences, such as computational & systems biology; biophysics & simulations, artificial intelligence & neural systems; high density data analysis using mathematics and statistics and expand into other areas in quantitative sciences including economics, finance, neurobiology and epidemiology using 'High Performance Computing Facility (HPCF)' and dedicated high speed connectivity has been established by the school to attend to the needs of teaching and research. Students and research scholars are provided with individual work-stations, using diverse software and hardware resources round the clock.
