Department of


Christ College, Rajkot, is the first college in Asia to start a program in Bioinformatics at undergraduate level. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that combines computer science, statistics, and biology to study and understand biological data. It involves the development of algorithms, tools, and databases to collect, analyze, and interpret biological information, such as DNA sequences, protein structures, and gene expression data. Bioinformatics is an essential field for understanding the complexity of biological systems and is increasingly important in advancing fields such as personalized medicine, drug discovery, and genetic engineering.

An undergraduate program in Bioinformatics covers topics such as genetics, molecular biology, computer programming, statistics, and data analysis. Students learn to use various software tools and databases to analyze biological data, identify patterns, and make predictions. They also develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills to solve real-world biological problems using computational methods.



Our vision for starting an undergraduate program in Bioinformatics is to prepare the next generation of scientists to address complex biological challenges using computational methods. We aim to provide students with a strong foundation in biology, computer science, and statistics, and equip them with the skills and tools needed to advance the field of personalized medicine and genomics.



Our mission is to provide a rigorous and comprehensive education that fosters critical thinking, creativity, and innovation, and to create a supportive and inclusive learning environment that inspires students to make meaningful contributions to the field of bioinformatics and improve human health. We are committed to promoting interdisciplinary collaboration and ethical conduct in research and education.
