Erstwhile the School of Information Technology (SIT) established in the year 2001 and renamed as School of Computational and Integrative Sciences (SC&IS) in 2010, the School carries out teaching and research in the inter-disciplinary areas of computational genomics, bioinformatics & drug discovery, database management & systems biology, high performance computing and artificial intelligence. The aim of the School is to innovate and integrate computational and analytical approaches adopted in different branches of sciences to find solutions. Rapid advancement in science and the cutting edge technologies enable and drive research in a big way, providing the opportunity to innovate. The School’s academic and research programs are currently focused on the core area of computational and systems biology with future emphasis on the study of complex systems, high density data analysis, theoretical biophysical chemistry and computational neurosciences.
