The Institute of Bioinformatics is a not-for-profit organization engaged in research in Bioinformatics. This institute is located in Bangalore, India and was established in May 2002. Bangalore is a prime center for research and development and is the hub of information technology in India. The Institute of Bioinformatics emphasizes cutting edge research in Databases, Computational Genomics, Proteomics Comparative Genomics, Metabolomics and Lipidomics. The initial goal of this Institute was to create a freely available Human Protein Reference Database using open source technologies and to experimentally verify predicted human genes using molecular biology and proteomics-based methods.




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.


To disseminate curated information about human genes and proteins freely to the global scientific community by making scientific data accessible through the world wide web and through published articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals.


To investigate biomarkers in multifactorial diseases such as cancers, neurological and metabolic disorders using high throughput techniques such as Next Generation Sequencing, Microarray and Mass Spectrometry.


To educate scientists from India and abroad in using the state-of-the-art tools and techniques for genomic and proteomic research. This includes inviting leading researchers from various disciplines to give lectures and to promote collaborative research.


To establish and maintain collaborations with laboratories and Institutes in India and abroad involved in related areas of research.
