e-SEVAMED - a DBT Sub-DIC Publication

We are pleased that we could publish SEVAMED Quarterly Bibliography on Infectious and Lifestyle Diseases for awareness and promotion of medical research without a break for eighteen years from Bioinformatics Centre with support from Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India.

The first issue of SEVAMED was published in April, 2000 by Bioinformatics Centre, Department of Biochemistry & JB Tropical Disease Research Centre, Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, Sevagram with financial support from DBT. We are very grateful to our founder Director Dr. Sushila Nayar for her encouragement and support at that time. We are also grateful to our dynamic President Shri. Dhiru S. Mehta for continued support and strengthening the Bioinformatics Centre all these years.

In those days internet was not so familiar and it was difficult to getcontinued internet connectivity, in small towns in particular. Our aim was to update medical teachers, students and practitioners by providing SEVAMED in their hand which contains selected references and abstracts of recent research work on infectious diseases.

Now the time has changed. Now a days internet is easily accessible and it has become a part of our lives. Hence we felt to transform SEVAMED to e-SEVAMED with inputs on recent advances on Bioinformatics, Next Generation Sequencing, Drug Designing etc.
