  • Teaching infrastructure:


  • Total area available: 450 Sq.meters.

  • Number of Lecture/ Seminar halls and laboratories for teaching:

1 lecture room and 2 Bioinformatics laboratory


  • Resources

The Bioinformatics laboratory – A Step Towards Green Computing

Servers and workstations housed in this Laboratory, have 25 terminals. As the department added more computers and servers to extend its computational facilities, it would be noted that the power consumption would also increase rapidly along with the amount of heat liberated. So to take a care of reducing the power consumption without jeopardizing the computational capability – we have introduced:

  • TFT monitors – The TFT monitors consumes much less power than the conventional CRT monitors which usually have a power rating of ~ 60 watts and do not almost heat up as compared to the CRTs.

  • Protos boxes from Wipro (with 40 GB HDD, 4 USB ports, Geode processors from AMD) with a very small form factor(saving space), low on power consumption (~ 12 watts) and almost does not heat up.

  • To minimize the use of monitors, most of the servers are connected a single Monitor through a KVM switch.

  • Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility(BIF) Center, WBUT


Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility (BIF) Center established by the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India, under its BTISnet program, is associated with the Department of Bioinformatics, WBUT. The Center regularly receives grants of rupees fifteen to twenty lakhs from DBT, for the purpose of “Establishment of Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility (BIF) for the promotion of Biology Teaching through Bioinformatics (BTBI)”.

Prof. Sabyasachi SenGupta, Vice-Chancellor, WBUT, is the Chairperson of the BIF Center, Dr. Raja Banerjee is the Coordinator and Dr. S. Supakar is the Co-coordinator of the BIF Center.

Besides helping in the regular departmental curriculum, the Center regularly organizes workshops, training and seminars. Eminent Scientists from different research institutions, Universities, R&D organizations from all over the country deliver seminars on current research topics.

Activities of the BIF Center (hyperlink to the below table)

  • National level Seminars, Workshops and Hands-on trainings
