Building robust research and innovation ecosystem in the State

  • Gujarat State Biotechnology Mission (GSBTM) has launched Research Support Scheme (RSS) providing financial assistance to research projects submitted by academia and research institutions.
  • The mandate of the Research Support Scheme is to be build robust research and innovation ecosystem in the State by supporting research projects addressing State specific problems needing biotechnological interventions.
  • Research support is provided in the priority areas identified through stakeholder consultations involving academia, research institutions and lien departments facing ground level problems, to develop solutions using the tools of biotechnology.

Proposals Are Invited To Resolve The Following Problems:

Plant Biotechnology:

  • Pink bollworm infestation in crop leading to loss of productivity
  • Gene editing for increasing oil ratio of omega 3 fatty acid in groundnut
  • Reduction of aflatoxin residue from groundnut via Pathogen resistant variety development.
  • Marker assisted selection for development of hybrids resistant for wilt and root rot in castor
  • Optimization of tissue culture protocol in castor
  • Use of gene technology to develop resistant cumin accessions.
  • Development of resistant varieties of fennel against fungal diseases via gene editing methodologies
  • Molecular breeding to develop new high yielding varieties of pulses – Chickpea and Pigeon pea
  • Development of Pheromone based technologies to address pod borer problem in pulses
  • Development of disease diagnostic kits/ chips for detection of infection in seeds of vegetables - Potato, Banana and Date Palm
