    Re: Eligibility for M.Tech in bioinformatics course

    With your technical qualification you are not eligible to apply for the M.Tech course in Bioinformatics. The eligibility for the M.Tech course in Bioinformatics is post-graduation in science/Graduates in Pharmacy, medical, dental and veterinary are eligible to apply for the course. But you can go for the M. Sc in Bioinformatics in any recognized university. For that you need to take the Entrace exam conducted by various universities/institutes. The entrance exams will differ according to the university. But most of the exams cover the areas of Life science and Mathematical science with English awareness. You can get the syllabus from the respective university site. After completing the course you will be able to do the M.Tech and advanced diploma in the field. Attractive career opportunities are awaiting for the bioinformatics graduates.

    Graduates are allowed to apply for this course. They should have completed B.Tech, MCA or MSc in the any of the areas of engineering.
    Most of the institutes insist at least 60% marks in the qualifying exam to accept the application. Also it is a must that the candidates should be fluent in English language.
    They should have pursued 12th standard where the medium of instruction should have been English.

    Hi friend

    You must be a graduate in B.tech bioinformatics or a B.Sc graduate

    A high percentage can secure you a seat in a reputed college.
    Many colleges ask for 75% and above.

    ALL THE BEST

    Re: Eligibility for M.Tech in bioinformatics course

    Hi ,

    Bioinformatics is an emerging interdisciplinary area of Science & Technology encompassing a systematic development and application of IT solutions to handle biological information by addressing biological data collection and warehousing, data mining, database searches, analyses and interpretation, modeling and product design. It is mainly the application of information technology to the management of biological data. Therefore it is a rapidly evolving scientific discipline. Being an interface between modern biology and informatics it involves discovery, development and implementation of computational algorithms and software tools. In the last three decades, storage of biological data in public databases has become increasingly common, and these databases have grown exponentially. The biological literature is growing exponentially as well. Strictly speaking, bioinformatics is a subset of the larger field of computational biology, the application of quantitative analytical techniques in modeling biological systems.
