Gujarat Genomics Initiative

Gujarat Genomics Initiative (GGI) - External website that opens in a new window

Gujarat Genomics Initiative is a multi-unit, multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional initiative with participating faculty, students, scientists and biotechnology industries. Activity focus is on genomics and molecular biotechnology operations including specialized research laboratories, training activities, infrastructure and equipment for the biotechnology community of Gujarat. This initiative aims to help in creating a top level genomics culture in Gujarat and generating a new economic opportunities in the field of high-end biotechnology. It also aims at helping in building-up genomics infrastructure which will enable Gujarat in achieving international competency and standards. This initiative aims to develop the large-scale consortia of academia, institutes and biotechnology industries with a highly diverse network of professionals.

GGI Activities

At present GGI is collecting rhizosphere soil from semiarid region and from that soil samples microbes are isolated and purified for species level identification. Identified species are then submitted to the genbank. On this basis, we are studying microbial diversity of rhizosphere soil flora. Till the date we have submitted 58 different sequences to the genebank. Molecular Marker development of Mango is initiated.

GGI : Spectrum of Services

GSBTM has formulated Gujarat Genomics Initiative for the high end genomics research in the state of Gujarat. Visualizing the unavailability of these infrastructure and strengths in most of the academics and research institutes, molecular biology services was also kept as a mandate of GGI. GGI offers the following services in the field of molecular biology at very nominal rates and high accuracy within a short period of time:

  • DNA Sequencing
  • Bacterial Identification
  • Fungal Identification
  • AFLP
  • RAPD & ISSR markers
  • SNP Detection and Genotyping
  • Gene Expression
  • DNA Mutagenesis
  • DNA Based QC, QA services
  • Training
  • Research Assignments on turnkey basis
  • Need based custom services and turnkey projects
