Dear Friend

Thank you very much for contacting As your point is very remarkable stating that intake of biotech or bioinforamtics background students in a software company. In fact a student who has done biotech or bioinformatics then chances of acceptability in software company is little low as compared to other professionals those are having software at core level. Though software companies are recruiting aspirants with biotech and bio-informatics background with the expectation that they could be able to contribute for the biological soft tools. I am trying to give you the technical instance which is very important to know prior joining any industry or institution, as you are looking for the good salary package and comfortability at work which seems to be unidirectional approach, think in reverse order and ask yourself -what you will bring into the industry at implementation level or product level so that industry will enjoy your company, have you ever seen the objectives and requirement of company so that you will be given preference with a healthy salary package even more then your expectation. Try to understand these points at your level and accordingly start to prepare yourself to make more acceptable and important for a recruiter.

Private Questions

Certain points are very important for you try to understand:
1. Basic course work: At higher secondary level you must give the equal weightage to all the subject so your elementary knowledge will be supportive to screen your subject combination which suits you. At the same time you will not be dependent on others in terms of future course of study.
2. Bioinformatics and Biotechnology for software company: Now a days software companies like Symbiosis, Wipro, TCS these prestigious company design the soft tools for biological researchers, students, and academicians at applied level where they require people from biotechnology or bio-informatics background. So they use to provide the training course and prepare the raw hands for better utility and then after years they appraise you based on your performance and ability. So before opting such career you try to equip yourself as much as possible and learn the course work which is a frame work for any future career , then take the course not for a degree rather understand it with your intellect and interest.

Hope above listed inputs will serve your purpose.
All the best!
