CSIR-Institute of Genomics & Integrative Biology (IGIB) is a premier Institute of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), engaged in research of national importance in the areas of genomics, molecular medicine, bioinformatics, proteomics and environmental biotechnology. The various research areas are: Genomics and Molecular Medicine, Respiratory Disease Biology, Genome Informatics and Structural Biology, Energy and Environmental Biotechnology, Chemical & Systems Biology, Ayurgenomics. Genomics and Molecular Medicine is the major research focus of IGIB. From large collaborative projects like the Indian Genome Variation Consortium project to exploring genetics of complex disorders using a candidate gene approach several groups at IGIB are involved in studying the molecular basis of human diseases. They focus on: Neuropsychiatric disorders like Schizophrenia, Cardiovascular disease, Diabetes and other complex disorders. CSIR-IGIB is initiating Distinguished Lecture Series that aims at bringing individuals of the highest caliber from the worlds of academia, business, arts and civil society to our campus to share their thoughts and ideas and to interact with the students. This Series is part of our efforts to enthuse and enrich the research experience of our students and ignite new ideas and inspire the younger generation to think prolifically and differently. A significant number of IGIB scientists focus on respiratory diseases using clinical, genetic, molecular and drug development approaches to tackle this challenging area. The diseases of interest here are: Tuberculosis, Asthma and Allergy, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD). IGIB has over the years built up expertise in high-throughput data analysis and genome annotation. It is participating in international efforts like the Gen2Phen Consortium for unifying genetic variation databases. Genome Informatics also forms an integral part of most other research areas at IGIB and contributes to development of tools and hypotheses. The areas where informatics has contributed to genome analysis include: Indian Genome Variation: analysis of genome variation data, Next-gen sequencing, assembly and annotation, Unfolded proteins and adhesins, Prediction of microRNA-target interaction, Structural regulatory motifs in the genome.
