Role of the Institution in the GenomeIndia Project: Data Analysis using genetic variants obtained from the project.

Accomplishments and Outcomes

We successfully showed the utility of GenomeIndia sequence data in improving mutation calling in sporadic (cancer) and familial diseases, by whole genome sequence data of a small set of 28 ‘normal’ samples. More importantly, this utility was proven to be over and above other ‘non-Indian’ genome data such as gnomAD and GenomeAsia.
