Information systems are the lifeblood of the new century and the integration of information systems with high-content and high-throughput detection systems in biotechnology has transformed biological research. Information technology (IT) has dramatically reduced the costs and increased the speed of research and development (R&D) in life sciences and in turn life sciences R&D, has opened up new challenges and opportunities for IT professionals. This virtuous cycle has contributed to a whole new frontier for knowledge generation e.g. the confluence of IT and biological advances have improved our ability to understand the root causes of human, animal and plant diseases and find new cures.
The ability of researchers to manage and analyze these diverse and extensive data is critical to the future success of life sciences R&D which has have spawned into the research field “Bioinformatics” that focuses on the use of IT to collect, organize, store, interpret, share, and analyze biological data. IT companies are now aware that the life sciences market comprises only a small part of the total IT market but it is a vibrant market BII growing rapidly and entering into new business innovation area where IT and the life sciences converge to analyze disparate data sources and types.
BII is a premier institute of Bioinformatics; aims not only at educational and research initiatives but also vouch for creating a talent pool of professionals by conducting training programs in life sciences and its emerging dimensions. BII with its initiative of providing high quality trainings as per the industry demand conducts various Training programs on IT Applications in Life Sciences and other emerging areas like clinical trials etc.
LIFE SCIENCES ARE THE FLAVOR OF TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY ERA AND EVERY ORGANIZATION WANTS TO GET A TASTE WITH ITS NEW BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES.
Corporate training regardless of size or type of an industry or business will have a measurable impact on performance and other related benefits as mentioned below:
The importance of the training is to know about the challenges that lie in front of IT companies for the growth and progress of life sciences. The lectures compassed that IT companies should join hands with pharma companies to develop analytical tools for the huge amount of molecular biology disparate data integration. The business challenges for the IT companies to deliver a powerful combination of technology and comprehensive preintegrated business application including key functionality built specifically for pharmaceutical, biotech and medical analysis.
These specifically designed training program would promote the various industries like IT professionals need to develop genomic softwares, proteomics and information manipulation tools in addition to detailed insight marker driven level tools. Another important opportunity is the requirement of better hardware and software interfaces for data capture and management. Pharma industry people will be able to understand that how Bioinformatics is improving the R&D process in drug discovery and development and new IT tools are required as the information technology plays a major role in drug research productivity and to increase collaboration and communication among industry and research sectors. The outsourcing of the knowledge is another business opportunity for the IT industry i.e. to unify computing resources through development of global, or grid, computing networks. The long-range goal of this initiative is to create a powerful new drug-discovery paradigm for the pharmaceutical industry and to develop new approaches to functional genomics by taking a genomic approach to protein structure analysis.
Bioinformatics "industry", though in a fledgling condition at present, could in the next 20 - 30 years actually rival the drug industry. The reason for this is that "genome awareness" is ramping up sharply in the health care community, and clinicians are already framing specific decisions regarding patient treatment in the context of the individual's unique genetic makeup. Increasingly, and sooner than one might think, therapies (at least in the industrialized world) will be tailored to match the special characteristics of a person's genes. The bioinformatics infrastructure necessary to service the healthcare industry transformed in this manner -- the "post-genome" era starting around 2005 -- will eventually become staggeringly large.
The business of "Medical Bioinformatics," powered by strong and irreversible economic and scientific trends in our society, has the potential to be a multibillion dollar, non-polluting, high-wage service industry in the 10 - 20 year time-frame. Therefore, if the state becomes a world leader in structural Bioinformatics in the next ten years, it is not unreasonable to suppose that NJ Bioinformatics-related enterprises may represent one of the most influential sectors -- and largest employers -- of science and technology-based commerce early in the next century.
Thus the life sciences / Bioinformatics are opening up a new frontier for profitable IT innovations and applications. Although the life sciences represent only a small fraction of the entire IT market, that portion is growing at a substantial rate. Researchers have become increasingly reliant on IT tools to reduce the costs and boost the productivity of life sciences R&D.
In the end it can said that main objective of the training is to create a climate within the organization where there's a lot of excitement and new ventures in business for the growth and progress of the organization.
The objective is to help scientists overcome the information overload.
IT people convert molecular information into meaningful digital format to know about the insights or hidden information stored.
