Abstract

In recent years, virtual learning is growing rapidly. Universities, colleges,  and secondary schools are now delivering training and education over the internet. Beside this, resources available over the WWW are huge and understanding the various techniques employed in the field of Bioinformatics is increasingly complex for students during implementation. Here, we discuss its importance in developing and delivering an educational system in Bioinformatics based on e-learning environment.
