Date - 07/03/2019 


Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India,  is establishing a National Genomics and Genotyping Facility which can be viewed as a “Single-window service system” for advanced genomics technology services that could positively influence the Indian Seed industry. The facility will be affiliated with National Institute of Plant Genome Research, New Delhi (NIPGR) and serve to facilitate genotyping services with private service providers and then advanced these, in a focused way, to meet the goal of food and nutritional security through genomics led breeding. The fundamental principle is relatively simple – create and charter an entity with express purpose of “serving” crop or plant varietal genotyping and characterization in India. It will also help to overcome legal hurdles in Material Transfer, IPR protection, etc. as well as will prevent bio-piracy. This facility could be used by both Public and Private stake holders and will strengthen Indian researchers by training them and by exchange of expertise in collaboration with international partners. Seed fund would be provided by DBT and facility will be established at NIPGR. Operational cost to be earned by running as a PPP model for sustainability. Model of the proposed facility would be Public Private Partnership and anchored to NIPGR. Private Service provider would run proposed facility and generate revenue and proposed to make itself sustainable within the defined period. National Institute of Plant Genome Research, New Delhi, an Autonomous Research Institution of Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India being the anchoring institution of the Facility invites applications from suitably qualified, dynamic and result oriented candidates with flair for service to fill up the various positions on contract basis as detailed below. The positions are completely on temporary basis and co-terminus with the project/scheme. The duration of project is initially for a period up to September 2021 and likely to be extended further on the discretion of DBT.
