About

Bioinformatics is a fast developing field projecting synergy between natural and modern biological sciences, between biological sciences and Information Technology.

The Centre of Bioinformatics was inaugurated in 2002. The Centre offers 4-semester (2 years) M.Sc. program in Bioinformatics. Master in Bioinformatics program is quite unique; it is rigorous with its credit-based courses covering latest areas in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. Specifically beneficial to the students from both Mathematics and Biological sciences streams, it is aimed at transforming students into trained bioinformaticians with adequate theoretical and practical knowledge for investigating and addressing a number of key biological questions.

The Centre has produced a large number of luminaries who are pursuing doctoral/postdoctoral research and placed at the reputed Universities/Institutions in India and abroad.

The Centre of Bioinformatics provides a Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility (BIF) with financial support from Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India. Supported by grants from DBT and Innovative Programs of University Grants Commission (UGC), the Centre is equipped with modern Bio-Computing and Modern Biological Laboratories.

The Centre also offers Doctoral Program in the areas of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology that includes Biomedical Genomics, Computational Systems Biology, Computer Aided Drug Designing, Evolutionary Bioinformatics, and Pharmacogenomics.

The Centre of Bioinformatics, University of Allahabad, Organized a special lecture on “Probiotics- An overview of beneficial effects on health and nutritional properties” in which large number of students, research scholars and teachers of Bioinformatics and Biotechnology were present. Prof M.P Singh, Coordinator, Centre of Bioinformatics introduced the eminent speaker Prof. D.R. Modi, Head, Department of Biotechnology and Dean, Faculty of Life Science, B.B Ambedkar University, Lucknow. Prof. Modi said that many microorganisms are friends rather than foes. Both harmful and useful bacteria are found in human body. The beneficial bacteria are probiotics and have positive effect on our health. They reach intestine live and prevent harmful bacteria from multiplying in the intestine also helps in digestion and improves vowel movement. Lactobacillus spp., Bifidobacterium spp. etc. are examples of probiotics. Beneficial microbial population gets altered by use of antibiotics. By introducing friendly microbes in the form of probiotics, resident flora can be improved over a period of time. Milk, soya milk, milk product i.e. butter milk, yoghurt; fermented food i.e. idli, dosa, dokhla, vadas, kadhi etc. contain probiotics and are healthy food. On the other hand, pizza, noodles and fast foods are health hazards. Prof. Modi said that there are two whites on your dinning table- salt and sugar, they are poison or health hazard if used indiscriminately. Hence, they should be used judiciously.Students, scholars and teachers asked questions after the lecture and Prof. Modi answered the queries. At the end Prof. M.P. Singh gave vote of thanks to Prof. Modi

प्रोबायोटिक्स – एक विहंगम दृष्टि

इलाहाबाद विश्वविद्यालय के बायोइनफोर्मेर्टिक्स विभाग में ‘’प्रोबायोटिक्स’ विषय पर एक विशेष लेक्चर का आयोजन किया गया जिसमे भारी संख्या में बायोटेक्नोलोजी एवं बायोइनफोर्मेर्टिक्स के छात्र-छात्राएं, शोधार्थी एवं शिक्षक मौजूद थे. बायोइनफोर्मेर्टिक्स के विभागाध्यक्ष प्रो.एम्.पी. सिंह ने बाबासाहेब भीमराव आंबेडकर विश्वविदालय, लखनऊ के बायोटेक्नोलोजी विभाग के विभागाध्यक्ष एवं विज्ञान संकाय के डीन एवं मुख्या वक्ता प्रो. दिनेश राज मोदी का परिचय कराया. तत्पश्चात प्रो. मोदी ने बताया कि बहुत से ऐसे जीवाणु जो हमारे दोस्त हैं. मानव शारीर में लाभदायक एवं हानिकारक दोनों तरह के जीवाणु पाए जाते हैं. जो लाभदायक जीवाणु हैं वो हमारे स्वास्थ्य पर अच्छा असर डालते हैं, हमारे आंत में जिन्दा पहुँचते हैं, वहाँ हानिकारक जीवाणु को बढने से रोकते हैं तथा पाचन क्रिया को मजबूत करते हैं. ऐसे जीवाणु ‘’प्रोबायोटिक्स’ कहलाते है. लेक्टोबेसिलस, बीफीडोबैक्टीरियम इत्यादि इसके उदहारण है. दूध एवं दूध से बनी सामग्री जैसे बटर मिल्क, योगहर्ट; फर्मेंटेड खाद्य पदार्थ जैसे कि इडली, डोसा, डोकला, बड़ा, कढ़ी इनमे ‘’प्रोबायोटिक्स’ होता है और स्वास्थ्य के लिए लाभप्रद है. दूसरी ओर पिज़्ज़ा, नुडूल्स एवं अन्य फ़ास्ट फ़ूड स्वास्थ्य के लिए बहुत हानिकारक है. प्रो. मोदी ने कहा आपके खाने के टेबल पर दो सफ़ेद चीज होती है – नमक एवं चीनी, दोनों जोखिम भरा खाद्य पदार्थ है, इसका अविवेकी प्रयोग जहर की तरह होता है. अतः इसका हमेशा उचित प्रयोग करना चाहिए. लेक्चर की समाप्ति पर छात्र-छात्राएं, शोधार्थी एवं शिक्षक सभी ने प्रश्न पूछे तथा प्रो. मोदी ने इसका जबाब दिया. अंत में प्रो.एम्.पी. सिंह ने सभी को धन्यवाद ज्ञापित किया.
