Design and Development of Digital Biotechnology Portal

Researchers, students and academic professionals may not find time and do not posses skills to search required information on the Internet that could support their needs. As we know information on the Internet is growing exponentially every year resulting creating problems for the above where they could miss valuable information. This situation became a challenge for library and information professionals to give pin pointed information on the time. In this computer era users are expecting many more services, then mere traditional books issuing or supplying published information, like SDI services, email facility, every day discussion facilities to share and/or exchange ideas and to be up to date with the new developments in their subject area. Solutions for the above problems have already been evolved in the form of Subject gateways and portals. Ex. RDN network (subject gateway) Yahoo, (portals) etc.
