Bioinformatics and Drug Discovery Society (BIDDS)
Bioinformatics and Drug Discovery Society (BIDDS) is an Indian academic society
for Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Drug Discovery. It has been registered
under the rule 8 of the Tamil Nadu society’s registration Act, 1975. In recent days,
bioinformatics has become indispensable in life science research. Buoyed by the success
of rational drug design and the new challenges posed by the emerging resistant and
infectious diseases has compelled the researchers to enhance bioinformatics application
for accelerating drug discoveries. It is in this backdrop with the idea of establishing
a stage for scientists, academicians, researchers and students that will bring them closer
to discuss, find scientific solutions in designing new drugs using advanced computer aided
technology, was proposed by Dr. S. Subbiah, Vice-Chancellor, Alagappa University at
University’s Bioinformatics department during the 9th National symposium-cum-workshop
on “Recent trends in structural bioinformatics and computer aided drug design”.
The society will serve as a platform for dissemination of scientific knowledge and
function as a central hub between bioinformatics, biological sciences and other allied
BIDDS has been developed for the promotion of recent progress in drug discovery with the resource of bioinformatics. This society helps in discovering the scientific and academic efforts throughout the globe and recognizes the researchers and scientist bestowed with the awards and credits. Expertise and eminent scientist all over India can be found under a single platform via BIDDS. The members of society meet every year and organize conference, workshop, symposium and training for all upcoming researchers to achieve great success by meeting eminent scientist and industrialists. It will be endow with a global opening for the scientists and researchers to present their work and gain exposure. This helps to seek inspiration and support the young researchers to accomplish their aim for future exploration of their study.
