The bioinformatics centre at M.S. University of Baroda was started in the year 1989 as a Distributed Information Sub Centre (Sub-DIC) under Biotechnology Information System network (BTISnet) of the Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India. As a recognition to the training activities, the centre was upgraded to a Distributed Information Centre (DIC) in the year 2004.

The main function of the Bioinformatics centre is to provide information to the interested users on topics pertaining to the relevant areas of Biotechnology, especially Genome analysis. The Centre also serves as the regional node under the ICCB-net in collaboration with the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. This tie-up has helped in using new approaches to data analysis in the current research and research initiatives in Genomics and Proteomics.  For several years, the centre is contributing significantly for the progress of the biotechnology research activities of the department.

This facility also provides a strong support to the research projects of the department and to the Ph.D. scholars. The informatics gateway is being used by the faculty members, students and other research staff for accessing different data bases for sequence analysis, deposition of nucleotide sequences, retrieval of sequences, structural analysis, literature search and access to several on-line journals.
