    The Department of Bioinformatics was started in the year 2008, to facilitate the teaching and research in the interdisciplinary areas of Small and Macro Molecule X-ray Crystallography, Structural Biology, Structural Bioinformatics, Molecular Modelling, Computer-Aided Drug Design, Pharmacoinformatics, Chemoinformatics, Molecular Cell Biology, Genetic Engineering, Genomics, Proteomics, Bio-computing, Quantum Chemistry, Database and Software development to create an intellectual environment for interdisciplinary education and training. The Department is supported by the University Grants Commission (UGC) under the scheme of Innovative Programme - Teaching & Research in Interdisciplinary and Emerging Areas, the Department of Science & Technology (DST) - Fund for Improvement of S & T Infrastructure in Higher Educational Institutions (FIST) and Promotion of University Research and Scientific Excellence (PURSE) and Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) 2.0. 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 through academic, industrial internship programs. The Department of Bioinformatics has been offering M.Sc., M.Phil., Ph.D & PG programmes. Our Department has been publishing many research articles related to Human diseases, pathogenic and non pathogenic organisms. Department has been receiving major research projects from various funding agencies such as Alagappa University Research Fund (AURF), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Department of Science and Technology (DST), Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), Tamil Nadu State Council for Science & Technology (TNSCST), and University Grants Commission (UGC).
