Purpose of Centre for Bioinformatics Learning Advancement and Systematics Training (CBLAST)

To teach how Using Bioinformatics one can make sense of the huge data available in terms of DNA, RNA and protein sequences

To provide knowledge of handling the mountains of available sequence data. Because With advances in technology, DNA sequences of hundreds of organisms are available with more than 126 billion bases of data.

Providing computational tools that can create a great deal of interest and financial reward in being able to biologically identify and validate drug targets.

To develop expert personnel with practical knowledge in biological data analysis using computational tools, enabling them to deal with biological problems.
