CSIR conducts Whole Genome Sequencing of over 1000 Indians for Biomedical Applications

Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) conducted Whole Genome Sequencing of 1,008 Indians from different populations across the country. The IndiGen Genome project, the Union Minister for Science & Technology, Earth Sciences and Health & Family Welfare, Dr. Harsh Vardhan said that the whole genome data would be necessary for building the knowhow, baseline data and indigenous capacity in the emerging area of Precision Medicine. The outcomes of the IndiGen will have applications in several areas, including predictive and preventive medicine, with a faster and efficient diagnosis of rare genetic diseases. Indigen The IndiGen initiative was undertaken by CSIR in April 2019, which was implemented by the CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (IGIB), Delhi, and CSIR-Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), Hyderabad. This has enabled benchmarking the scalability of genome sequencing and computational analysis at the population scale in a defined timeline. The ability to decode the genetic blueprint of humans through whole-genome sequencing will be a significant driver for biomedical science. The benefits of this initiative include the epidemiology of genetic diseases to enable cost-effective genetic tests, carrier screening applications for expectant couples, enabling efficient diagnosis of heritable cancers and pharmacogenetic tests to prevent adverse drug reactions.
