Genomics for Precision Medicine in India
CSIR Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (CSIR-IGIB) has initiated a unique programme on this front, pioneering the application of Genomics for Public Health (IndiGen) in India. The Genomics for Understanding Rare Disease, India Alliance Network (GUaRDIAN) is a large-scale collaborative network of clinicians from around India trying to integrate genomics in clinical practice, with the a singular focus to elucidate the genetic structure of Rare Genetic Diseases in India. Omics for Precise Therapeutic Interventions Minimizing Adverse Events (OPTIMA) is a collaborative initiative towards implementing pharmacogenetics in Clinics.
