Realizing the informational revolution brought about by Bioinformatics in exchange of different database through electronic media easily and in a faster manner, the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India started a first ever National Network on Biotechnology called Biotechnology Information System Network (BTISNet) during the 7th Five Year Plan. Under this network the Department has established different Bioinformatics centre as Centres of Excellence (CoEs), Distributed Information Centres (DICs), Distributed Information Sub-Centres (DISCs) and Bioinformatics Infrastructure Facility (BIFs) at various Universities, Research Institutions and Government Offices.
The Bioinformatics Centre, Sikkim is one of them and is established in the capacity of Distributed Informatics Sub-Centre (DISC). The Centre is working under Sikkim State Council of Science and Technology, Department of Science and Technology and has been guided by principles and objectives of its own.
Sikkim being a hot spot has a huge repository of biological resources .Documentation of these biological resources is of out most importance for Research and development works, Conservation protection and to avoid activities like bio-piracy. Sikkim Bioinformatics Centre has created these data of biodiversity using primary resources like Books, Published researched paper and net and secondary data like field visit and questionnaires.
