Genetics has largely changed in the last few years with the emergence of high-throughput genomic data. Therefore many students learning about molecular biology and genetics need to learn how to analyze omics data and understand biological processes using bioinformatics.
Subham Sarkar is a postgraduate student and has a Masters Degree in Genetics and Molecular Biology from the University of Burdwan, West Bengal, India. He is NET qualified by passing the National Eligibility Test – that makes him eligible for the post of Assistant Professor or Junior Research Fellowship (or both) in Indian universities and government colleges. He is also GATE qualified (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) – these tests evaluate the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and science. He is currently preparing for other competitive examinations as well. He is keen on researching in the domain of bioinformatics. He says his thirst for knowledge makes him a voracious reader and he doesn’t stop until he finds an answer to the question he has in mind. He loves to sing and has appeared in national music shows in India twice since he was a teenager.
Subham was a participant of the Introduction to Bioinformatics pilot program, a collaboration between Pine Biotech and Amity University, Kolkata. Through the duration of the program, he completed several courses including Introduction to Bioinformatics, Genomics 1, Metagenomics, Introduction to Epigenetics, as well as used our T-Bio Info Server Platform.
With over 14,100 points, Subham ranks #21 on our leaderboard.

This is what Subham had to say about his experience:
“This course was very useful for students like me who have very limited knowledge of Bioinformatics. What I have learnt from here, I think, will always come in handy in future. All the teachers are very caring and approachable…. It was a great experience to be a part of this Introduction to Bioinformatics program”
Biologists today can generate huge amounts of complex data using high-throughput technologies. But their is a gap that remains in analyzing this data for meaningful results. Often students are unprepared for the flood of data they will be met with after their studies. This is where online courses in bioinformatics methods and logic can help anyone with a basic understanding of biology leverage complex data analysis techniques. Instead of relying on others to process and analyze data, intuitive tools can be used by anyone.
