        Department of Bioinformatics was started in the year 2008, to facilitate the teaching and research in the interdisciplinary areas of Structural Bioinformatics, Computational Genomics and Proteomics to create an intellectual environment for interdisciplinary education and training. Our department comprises of well experienced faculty members with research interests and expertise in Small and Macro Molecule X-ray Crystallography, Structural Biology, Molecular Modelling, Computer Aided Drug Design, Pharmacogenomics, Chemoinformatics, Molecular Cell Biology, Genetic Engineering, Genomics, Proteomics, Bio-computing, Quantum Chemistry, Database and Software development. We apply our computational and experimental techniques to study the interaction of small chemical compounds with proteins and nucleic acids and to characterize their molecular mechanisms towards the novel discovery for human diseases. Our dynamic environment is focused on students to gain experience in these fields through academic, industrial rotations and internship programs. Our students regularly coordinate with faculties to produce scientific publications. 
        The Department of Bioinformatics is offering a two year M.Sc., degree course and one year M. Phil., course in Bioinformatics. Doctoral programme is also being offered in Bioinformatics. Our department has published many research articles related to Human diseases, pathogenic and non pathogenic organisms. 
Department has received major research projects and funds from various funding agencies such as University Grants Commission (UGC), Department of Science and Technology (DST), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Department of Biotechnology (DBT) and Tamil Nadu State Council for Science & Technology (TNSCST)in the fields of Structural Bioinformatics, Human Molecular Genetics, Structural Biology and Bio-computing.
