Role of the Institution in the GenomeIndia Project: The Indian Biological Data Centre, hosted at the Regional Centre for Biotechnology (RCB),Faridabad, serves as a digital repository for data generated in India in the area of Life sciences. The role of the IBDC is to archive and provide access to the datasets generated by the GenomeIndia Project.

Accomplishments and Outcomes

RCB-IBDC has provided efficient access to all Sequencing and Analysis centres by creating FTP accounts for the Upload/Downloadingof the (UBAM, Fastq and GVCF) datasets. RCB-IBDC is connected with all the stake-holding institutes by a dedicated NKN-GenomeIndia VRF line for secure data exchange. RCB-IBDC has created a dedicated portal of GenomeIndia for the metadata of data generated. RCB-IBDC will also aid development of policy to enable access to the deposited data to appropriate stakeholders.

Role of CBR

The overall data transfer activities were coordinated by a team led by Mr. Jothibasu from the Centre for Brain Research.
