[right-post]Position-Specific Iterated BLAST (PSI-BLAST) is a user-friendly version of a profile-based search.BLAST does not always find all homologs because no search program is 100% sensitive. To find putative homologs that BLAST does not find, search with mathematical representation of the protein family. It is important to note that PSI-BLAST finds putative homologs. It is best to confirm the homology in the wet lab or in the dry lab.


[fquote]Pondicherry University,Puducherry,on behalf of Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, conducted the BINC examination in 2015. The objective of this examination is to certify bioinformatics professionals, trained formally as well as self-trained.Registration is open from April 13,2016 to May 13,2016.[/fquote]
  • Pondicherry University, Puducherry has been identified as a nodal agency by the Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India to coordinate this examination along with nine centres namely, Pune University, Pune; Anna University, Chennai; Bose Institute, Kolkata; Institute of Bioinformatics & Applied Biotechnology, Bangalore; North-Eastern Hill University, Shillong, University of Hyderabad, Hyderabad; University of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram; Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi and Assam Agricultural University, Guwahati. 
  • In the BINC 2015 examination,23 candidates were certified. DBT has agreed to fund Research fellowships for all the BINC qualified Indian nationals to pursue Ph.D. in Indian Institutes/Universities. Note that the candidate must possess a postgraduate degree(or equivalent) & meet the criteria of the institutes/universities in order to avail research fellowship. In addition, cash prize of Rs. 10,000/- will be awarded to the top 10 BINC qualifiers.

Bioinformatics Quiz: Test Your Knowledge of Bioinformatics

  • Every year Department of Biotechnology  conduct a DBT-JRF BET examination  for BIOTECHNOLOGY and BIOINFORMATICS students,if you consider both part A and Part B then there is  ~15 to 20 questions which are asked from BIOINFORMATICS,because this year BINC(BINC-2016) is also going to conduct in which BIOINFORMATICS play major role;so for these reasons i have decided to consider all BIOINFORMATICS questions,which was asked in DBT-JRF  (2008-2014) Question papers.For that i have prepared "BIOINFORMATICS QUIZ" which not only help you to do good score in  DBT-JRF BET-2016 but it is also useful in BINC-2016(part A MCQs).

We’re excited about our work with the hospitals and research institutions using bioinformatics to achieve major healthcare breakthroughs and unlock the mysteries of the human body.This eBook highlights the important work bioinformatics organizations are undertaking and explains how we are helping them achieve their mission. The stories of these four organizations illustrate what is possible with the AWS Cloud:
  1. The National Institute of Health’s Human Microbiome Project (HMP) – Researchers from all over the globe can now access HMP data through Nephele, an AWS-supported platform, and use that information to identify possible microbial causes of preterm births, diabetes, inflammatory bowel syndrome, and other disorders.
  2. The INOVA Translational Medicine Institute (ITMI) – AWS architecture facilitates the storage and management of this secure data, and enables Inova researchers to develop personalized treatments and predictive care for newborns suffering from congenital disorders and patients of all ages with cancer-causing genetic mutations.
  3. University of California, San Diego’s  Center for Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (CCBB) – CCBB has seven core AWS-supported analysis pipelines, all optimized to handle next-generation sequencing data. Each pipeline is targeted at identifying small but important molecular differences, whether in a tumor’s DNA or in the microbiome, enabling doctors to tailor treatment on an individual level.
  4. GenomeNext – GenomeNext’s AWS based platform represents the newest technological benchmark in the history of genomic analysis, and allows even small research groups to complete genomic sequencing in a matter of hours at a fraction of the traditional cost.
