Cheminformatics Virtual Internship for Beginners
Cheminformatics Online Internship
The field of Chemistry plays an essential role in various Industries. It’s the field that contributes the most to the pharmaceutical industry. Different new technologies are being developed to make the study of molecules and their reactions quicker and more efficient; one such field 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. The primary application of Cheminformatics lies in storage, indexing, and search of information relating to chemical compounds. Cheminformatics is actively applied in drug discovery, drug lead identification, and optimization processes.
Importance of Cheminformatics: The demand to develop new drugs and molecules has increased over the years. Cheminformatics has gained significant momentum in research institutions, pharmaceutical companies, the biotechnology industry, research laboratories, and academic institutions. 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 can this process be made faster. Rasayanika Brings you a fantastic opportunity to do a Virtual Internship in Cheminformatics. This internship will help you understand the basics of Cheminformatics and help you prepare for a career in the research and pharma industry.
