CSIR Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (CSIR-IGIB) with its rich expertise in the area of genomics and a wide network of clinical partners across the country has embarked on a unique outreach programme, to enable equitable access to genetic testing for frequent genetic diseases. This programme aims to provide a platform for clinicians to tap into the rich and varied expertise of CSIR-IGIB in disease genomics to solve clinical problems. The Institute brings to table its pioneering expertise in genomics in the country, demonstrated over almost a decade through the Indian Genome variation project, the sequencing of first Indian personal genome and ongoing clinical genomics efforts in rare and common diseases with a large number of public and private healthcare institutions in the country. Through this effort, we make available this in-house expertise to a larger community of clinicians to enable precise diagnosis and prognostication of genetic diseases in India.
