North Eastern State - Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility
    The DBT funded-Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility (BIF) at the Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (MBBT), Tezpur University, was established in the year 2007. Since its inception, BIF is imparting training in the field of bioinformatics to M.Sc Molecular Biology and Biotechnology students, which is a mandate of the Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India. To augment this, BIF has also started an e-Learning Management System (e-LMS) and a quarterly e-newsletter entitled ‘Tezubioin’ in 2011 and 2010, respectively.
Major research activities    
Bioinformatics research area: Sequence analysis for molecular evolution and phylogenetic studies, computer aided drug designing and molecular modeling, protein structure prediction and assessment analysis.
  • A comparative compositional study of alkane hydroxylases in oil degrading bacteria – an in silico approach.
  • Comparative genomic analysis of lipase producing gene of Bacillus cereus and in designing a universal PCR primers.
  • Study of evolution of transposons in prokaryotic genomes.
  • Drug designing for Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
