Cheminformatics Virtual Internship- For Beginners
Cheminformatics Online Internship
The field of Chemistry plays an important role in various Industries. It’s the field that contributes the most to the pharmaceutical industry. Various new technologies are being developed to make the study of molecules and their reactions quicker and more efficient, One such field that is being extensively studied and applied is Cheminformatics.
What is Cheminformatics? In simple terms, Cheminformatics is an “in silico” Technique, where Computational techniques are applied to study the principles of chemistry. Cheminformatics is actively being applied in drug discovery, drug lead identification, and optimization processes. The primary application of Cheminformatics lies in storage, indexing, and search of information relating to chemical compounds.
Importance of Cheminformatics: The demand to develop new drugs and molecules has been increasing over the years. With the emergence of novel pathogens and diseases, it is now more essential to have skilled professionals who can work fluently in the Cheminformatics field. Only with the advent of Computers, this process can be made faster. Cheminformatics has gained significant momentum in research institutions, pharmaceutical companies, the biotechnology industry, research laboratories, and academic institutions. Rasayanika Brings you an amazing opportunity to do a Virtual Internship in Cheminformatics. This internship is going to help you understand the basics of Cheminformatics and will help you prepare for a crater in the research and pharma industry.
