Recent advances in DNA sequencing, molecular cloning, and gene editing helped remarkably in understanding the biology of life forms in our nature. Reduced cost and increased speed of DNA sequencing have led to rapid growth of genomics. Functional significance of genomic elements (genes, RNA, proteins, small molecules and phenotype) are still being unravelled in many organisms. The data coming out from large-scale functional genomics studies need to be stored, analyzed and interpreted. This requires a high-end computing facility and data center to cater towards the scientific community. India being a country having the richest biodiversity hotspots in the world, there is huge scope to decode genomes, understand and harness functionality of biodiversity through functional genomics and bio-informatics approaches. Our center aim to carryout large-scale studies in relation to conservation and traditional medicine.
