The Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility (BIF) Centre has been setup under the Biotechnology Information System Network (BTIS) program (funded by Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology) at the Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics, University of Kalyani. This Centre was inaugurated by Professor A.S. Kolaskar on 28th March, 2007. The Centre aims to work on biological data acquisition, creation and development of programmes and databases needed by the users. Training and research on Bioinformatics in this University is also going on in a regular basis. The researchers, M.Sc. students and project workers from this University and other Universities/Institutions are involved in researches related to Computational Biology, Molecular Dynamics Simulations and Molecular Modeling.
This centre has a well developed infrastructure facility connected through intranet. At this point, it has Acclerys GCG package for sequence analysis, Accelrys DS suite for Molecular Modelling and Dynamics Studies, Genious Pro and other academic free software for research.
Another thrust area of this centre is to popularize the application of Bioinformatics in R & D by organizing training programs and conducting Seminars/Workshops for Scientists/Research Scholars/ Students.
