BS Bioinformatics


Bioinformatics is the application of information technology to the study of living things, usually at the molecular level. Bioinformatics involves the use of computers to collect, organize and use biological information to answer questions in fields like evolutionary biology.

As an interdisciplinary field of science, bioinformatics combines Computer Science, Biology, Mathematics, and Engineering to analyze and interpret biological data. Research in bioinformatics includes development software tools, Databases and Algorithems for storage, retrieval, and analysis of the Biological data.

Both of these programs are conducted at Baqai Medical University City Campus Nazimabad, which is located at the heart of the city easily reachable from all over the places. The City campus has a unique location away from the hustle and bustle of main roads, having a peaceful educational environment.
