Hello all,

I have a Bachelors in Biochemistry (2008) and a Master's in Bioinformatics (2011). I am currently looking for a job with good computational biology/bioinformatics and biotech firms (location no preference). Can anyone tell me of any good firms to start off with for someone who has just finished their Master's in Bioinformatics?

Thank you very much.

Hi Anjana,

I would highly recommend you to look at Nature India website.

Nature India is a one-stop site for information on Indian science. The website, serving the scientific community of the world’s largest democracy, provides information on jobs, events, the best research and science news from India. Through in-depth features and commentaries, leading members of the scientific community, scientists and journalists reflect on contemporary issues affecting Indian science. It also provides free access to some handpicked premium content from various NPG journals.

Other recommended institutes/websites to look for:

  • The Bioinformatics Centre (BIC): The Bioinformatics Centre (BIC) at the Institute of Microbial Technology, Chandigarh was established in 1987. This is the one of nine centres created under the programme Biotechnology Information Systems (BTIS) by department of biotechnology (DBT), Govt. of India.
  • Institute of Bioinformatics and Applied Biotechnology(IBAB): The institute main objectives is to become a globally recognised institution of higher learning in bioinformatics and biotechnology. To undertake short-term training programmes especially executive training programmes to upgrade the skills of professionals in related industries. To provide incubation and other serivces to entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs. To carry out research and development.
  • The Supercomputing Facility for Bioinformatics & Computational Biology (SCFBio): Their main goal is to establish a nodal facility for supercomputing, accessible to the Bioinformatics community and to develop novel scientific methods and new software for genome analysis, ab initio protein structure prediction and active site directed drug design.
  • Bioinformatics Institute of India (BII): Their main mission is to promote excellence in biotech, life sciences and pharma education to be leaders who shape the future of the students in this field, to provide high quality training program designed to motivate participants to achieve their personal, financial and self-improvement goals, to collaborate with counterpart institutions, industry & government organizations to apply knowledge for new business innovations, to foster academic industry / professional synergies.
  • The Institute of Bioinformatics (IOB): Their main goal is to promote research into the study of human and other genomes. Complete sequencing of the human genome was a crucial first step towards deciphering the complex network of genes and proteins. The Institute of Bioinformatics is using computational as well as experimental approaches to catalogue genes as well as proteins encoded by the human genome.
