The recent declaration of COVID-19 as a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation has prompted us to make the relevant Data, Research and Resources at the Vinod Scaria Lab at CSIR Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (CSIR-IGIB) in an open format to ensure that they are widely accessible as well as relevant. 

The programme would embrace the concepts of open-source and open access.
Know more about the current volunteers
Please contact Dr. Vinod Scaria at vinods[at]igib[dot]in with a brief description of your skills and motivation if you would be interested in joining in.
The following Projects are open and currently underway. The datasets and results would be added in a systematic way soon.

Comparative Genomics and Optimal Diagnostics
The aim of the project would be to compile all primers/probes for screening and diagnosis of SARS CoV-2 infection from across the world. 
[OpenData Diagnostics and Screening Assays]

Genome Analysis and Genetic Epidemiology
The aim of the project is to use public data of SARS CoV-2 genomes for understanding the genetic epidemiology of the epidemic.
[Computational Protocol for Assembly and Analysis of SARS-nCoV-2 Genomes]

The aim of the project is to develop methods and approaches to accurately model the epidemic in India and also assess the impact of early interventions.

Compendium of Potential Coronavirus Therapeutics
The compendium provide a ready reference to analyse inhibitors and chemical landscapes of corona-virus inhibitors reported in public domain.
