The Department of Bioinformatics is offering two year M. Sc., degree course, one year M. Phil., course in Bioinformatics and one year Post Graduate Diploma in Structural Pharmacogenomics(PGDSP)-UGC Innovative Program. Doctoral programme leading to Ph.D. is also being offered in interdisciplinary areas in Bioinformatics at the department. The Department is comprised 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, Genomics, Molecular Biology, Genetic Engineering, Proteomics, Chemoinformatics, Bio-computing, Database & Software development.

Department faculties are having international collaboration with Osaka University, Japan, RIKEN Harima Institute, SPring-8, Japan, Institute for Protein Research (IPR), Osaka University, Japan, National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center, Taiwan, Nanyang Technological University for Research, Singapore, Konkuk University, Republic of Korea.

The department is undertaking research projects in the fields of Structural Bioinformatics, Structural Biology and Bio-computing funds from various agencies such as University Grants Commission (UGC), Department of Science and Technology (DST), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Tamil Nadu State Council for Science & Technology (TNSCST) and Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
