Why Bioinformatics?

Bioinformatics is a rapidly burgeoning field in the Healthcare and Life Sciences industry. MGL’s Life Sciences division recognizes the importance of a training program in this vital field. Experts have already dubbed bioinformatics – a hybrid profession pairing biology and computer science – the career choice of the decade.

This year’s “Beyond Borders” report states that the current Biotechnology industry continues to grow rapidly, as companies raise record amounts of venture capital and the potential value of mergers, acquisitions and alliances reaches new heights. This consequently will create significant job openings in the areas of software development, drug designing, and database in various research areas.

A high percentage of the students who have passed out from the last few batches have now started successfully publishing their projects in international conferences.

About Training

Over the past six years, MGL has been contributing to Life Sciences research community by conducting Industrial training / Certificate Program in the Bioinformatics industry. We permit students (M.Tech, M.Sc, B.Tech, B.Sc etc) from various academic institutions to carry out their dissertation and project work in disciplines involving Genomics, Proteomics, Cheminformatics, Bio-computing, FDA compliance, Pathway designing and analysis, Database designing and Biological algorithm designing. Also available are various programming languages like PERL/PYTHON and exposure to MGL’s Bioinformatics educational tools such as EXOMETM Horizon, which includes sequence, structure and drug design modules.

Bioinformatics is a computer intensive field, so it is quite natural to find that experts in this discipline tend to post a lot of useful information on the web. In fact most professors teaching bioinformatics courses, book authors, and creators of important algorithms have extensive web sites filled with tutorials and educational information. The challenge is to locate the resources that you need for your personal education without spending months of your time surfing the web searching for these gems.

There is a clear need for an organized central resource that collects links to bioinformatics training material. The EXOME™ Horizon (EH) is an attempt to fill this need.

EXOME™ Horizon, an enabling service for Bioinformatics is a “Unified bioinformatics Learning Environment” that integrates the tools to learn, appreciate, explore and teach Bioinformatics in an optimal way. It facilitates the understanding of Bioinformatics among researchers and students.

The EXOME™ Horizon is an organized collection of Sequence Analysis tools, Structural Bioinformatics tools & Drug discovery tools, Comprehensive tutorials, In-built databases, On-line references, Sample test datasets, etc. In short everything that interested scientists/student’s need in order to train themselves in the emerging discipline of bioinformatics

EXOME™ Horizon is a service offering that consists of Sequence Analysis, structural bioinformatics and Drug Designing modules. EXOME™ Horizon uses workflow model through which a user can effectively and efficiently comprehend the procedural steps of sequence analysis, structure analysis and drug designing.

Listed below are just some of the areas in which training is conducted using EXOME™ Horizon:

Some of the salient features of EXOME™ Horizon other than the one mentioned above are as follows:

  1. Client server architecture minimizes the cost per user.
  2. Minimizes the hard ware requirement to a Server
  3. User specific & secure work space
  4. Comprehensive help menus for self learning
  5. Limiting the use of internet bandwidth with inbuilt data bases- Nucleotide, PDB, PDBQ etc.
  6. Interactive GUI removes the pain to learn and write commands to run an application.

Easy to understand the results/output through graphical representation and saves valuable time in understanding the application specific output
