Impact shown by the Centre:

The center has shown impacts in terms of research publication by the center as well as by the Biotechnology research group
of the institution. software tools: The center has also developed a software pipeline named “EST-SSR-MARKER PIPELINE
(ESMP)”. This pipeline integrates EST pre-processing, clustering, assembly and subsequently mining of SSRs from as-
sembled EST sequences. The mining of SSRs from ESTs provides valuable information on the abundance of SSRs in ESTs
and will facilitate the development of markers for genetic analysis and related applications such as marker-assisted breed-
ing. The database is available for free at http://bioinfo.aau.ac.in/ESMP.

Proposed activities for 2013-14

1. To provide services to the scientific community of NE India

2. Organize National Workshop/Symposia on Bioinformatics for teachers, scientists and research scholars of this
region.

3. Databases on Avr/R gene and ESTs and other markers of plantation crops in progress and will be completed.

4. The existing databases created earlier will be converted to web-accessible format so that these can be made
available online.

XXIVnd All India BTISnet Coordinators’ Meeting February 03-04, 2011

Assam University, Silchar

Coordinator: Prof. M. Dutta Choudhury

Summary of the Progress made by the centre from its inception:

Bioinformatics Centre of Assam University, Silchar came into existence in the year 2008 with full financial assistance from
Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India under DBT-BIF scheme. Since its birth, the centre is actively engaged in
teaching and research in the different fields of Bioinformatics. Realizing the need of incorporation of Bioinformatics tools in
Life Sciences research, The Department of Life Science, Assam University took special initiative to establish this centre. In
January 2009, the Bioinformatics Laboratory was inaugurated by Hon’ble Vice Chancellor Prof. Tapodhir Bhattacharjee.

The centre organizes seminars, workshops and training programmes from time to time to popularize Bioinformatics in this
region and the entire northeast as a whole. The main thrust area of research of the centre is Computer Aided Drug Designing.
Teachers and researchers carry out intensive research in the field of drug designing from natural products with the help of
Bioinformatics tools.

Major research activities in Biotechnology and its related fields at your institution:

As Assam University, Silchar is located in one of the 25 biodiversity hotspots of the world, the major research activities
focus on the rich biodiversity of the region. The main thrust area of research in Bioinformatics Centre is Natural Product
based Computer Aided Drug Designing. In addition to these, Ethnobotany and Medicinal Plants, Natural Products, Cancer
Genetics, Microbial Ecology, Stress tolerance in crop plants, antibiotic resistance etc. are different research fields in the
university.

Area of specialization: Natural Product based Computer Aided Drug Designing

Major achievements made during 2012-13:

Organized a Training programme on “Statistical Tools in Biological Research” from 7th to 12th April 2012, where major focus
was on QSAR studies.

Several papers were published in impact factor journals during 2012. The total impact factor for eight (08) such papers is
11.3.

Moreover, the centre is developing a database of ant diabetic phytochemicals.
