GenomeIndia: Cataloguing the Genetic Variation in Indians

The GenomeIndia Project is a Multi-Centre, Multi-Institutional Project which aims at performing whole genome sequencing (WGS) of at least 10,000 individuals representing the Indian population in order to create a detailed catalogue of genetic variations. The information from the catalogue will be made publicly available through a web portal. The global databases till date have been extremely Eurocentric and although India is the land of more than one-sixth of the world population and harbours huge amount of genetic variation only comparable to Africa, it has been largely under-represented in genomewide studies of variation. This project, after completion, will be a value addition to the existing databases cataloguing genetic variations in different global populations and will supplement the global scientific community’s long-standing demand of having commensurate representation of populations from the Indian sub-continent on the global map. It will be an immense scientific resource for the country and the international scientific community as it moves to the future into the realm of genomics driven health sciences. We are looking for a motivated and bright individual interested to explore career opportunities in this multi-organization national initiative, of which NIBMG has a lead role to perform.
