Additional Information



Scientists in ICRISAT’s Global Theme on Biotechnology employ a range of modern genomic technologies in their efforts to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of crop improvement. These include high-throughput genotyping technologies. The rate-limiting step in genomics is no longer data generation but rather the speed, at which data is captured, validated, analyzed and turned into useful knowledge. The role of Bioinformatics is to remove this rate-limiting step through the development of software platforms for handling large volumes of data generated and facilitate its analysis. The term ‘platform’ implies all those vital services and technologies that are needed to support genomics research projects at all of ICRISAT locations. Bioinformatics at ICRISAT functions both as a research and research support unit. Research efforts in Bioinformatics at ICRISAT focus on two major areas. One relates to infrastructure development which includes: (a) the development of appropriate software and efficient protocols for data capture, storage, retrieval and dissemination..........
