    The Bioinformatics Centre a Sub Centre -Distributed Information Centre (Sub-DIC) at Bharathidasan University is an offshoot of National Facility for Marine Cyanobacteria (NFMC) sponsored by DBT Govt of India is exclusively started to work on the primordial organism the cyanobacteria, since its inception 2001.
    Centre has good infrastructure facility, which supports NFMC and Department of Marine Biotechnology and other life science students of University in Bioinformatics. The centre conducts National level workshop annually, which adds up the knowledge and man power to the field of cyanobacterial Bioinformatics.
    Centre assists NFMC in the biotechnological exploration of marine cyanobacteria and microalgae through genome wide hunt in the areas of metabolic pathways, bioremediating enzymes, and molecular markers in addition to identifying the biotechnological potentials.
