Expression of Interest from Industry to license the knowledgebase of allele frequencies of genetic variants and for Exploring partnership in areas of Genomics and applications in healthcare

CSIR Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (CSIR-IGIB) is a constituent national laboratory under the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR India) and a premier institution engaged in research of national importance in the areas of genomics, genomic biology, molecular medicine and bioinformatics. The institute has a stated mission to translate concepts developed in basic biological research to commercially viable technologies for health care.

CSIR-IGIB recently concluded the sequencing of over 1000 whole genomes from across India as part of the IndiGen programme. The programme was an initiative to create the baseline genomic information for development of Public Health applications in India and therefore serves as a unique resource to drive innovations in genomic applications in healthcare.

To this end, CSIR-IGIB invites Expression of Interest from the industries to license the knowledgebase of allele frequencies of genetic variants for development and deployment of commercial applications/services. The knowledge base of allele frequencies of genetic variants encompass over 50 million genetic variants from over 1000 whole genome sequences from across the country.

CSIR-IGIB also invites Partnership with industrial stakeholders who would be interested in research in the field of genomics and genomic applications in healthcare through mutually beneficial collaborations. It is envisaged that such a partnership will augment cutting edge research and would also allow the development and deployment of innovative, population specific and scalable solutions for healthcare.

Interested industries may send an Expression of Interest to:
