Abstract:
As the Recombinant DNA, Gene Cloning and DNA sequencing technologies improved in 1970s the scientists began to think about the possibilities of sequencing the 3x109 nucleotide pairs in human genome. This led to the launch of the Human Genome Project (1990), and the greatest discovery in the field of life sciences, is near to completion. Vast and ever expanding diverse information on bioinformatics resources are being developed. These include databases of biological information, software tools etc. Advances in Internet Technology have largely affected to the bioinformatics resources as heterogeneous sources of information. It facilitates the uniform access to the educational, academic and research information sources to the bioinformaticians for their research and developmental activities. This paper describes awareness about the bioinformatics information resources and digital library needs of students at Jaypee University of Information Technology, Solan (HP) and how it can be helpful to access the information resources on bioinformatics through digital library techniques.
