Scientific institutions in India have so far focused their efforts
on creating infrastructure for cutting edge research in
the area of life sciences. Institute of
Genomics and Integrative Biology (IGIB), in
collaboration with Institute of Molecular Medicine
(IMM-The Chatterjee Group) for the first time, has
looked at opportunities in core - shared research
facility by leveraging their domain specialization and
accessing competencies to provide high quality platform
for scientific research.
It is this fundamental belief that underlies the establishment of
The Centre for Genomic Application
(TCGA) - a collaboration between the IGIB [a Council of
Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) organization
which is supported by the Department of Science and
Technology (DST)] and IMM-The Chatterjee Group.
