Salient Achievements

  • Different techniques were used for analysis of micro-array and other data.
  • Students and Scientists of IVRI and other organizations were trained in handling Bioinformatics databases for sequence analysis, primer designing, Probe searching and micro-array analysis.
  • Ten putative cancer (AML) causing genes were identified.
  • Twenty seven mi-RNA UTR sequences were analyzed for predicting mi-RNA target which gave 143 possible targets with 81.14% accuracy.

Bibliographic databases

  1. LIVESTOCK DISEASE DATABASE : A new database with good software containing various fields of knowledge about diseases of livestock has been developed to meet the requirement of veterinarians and people engaged in animal husbandry, health management, teaching and research pursuits. The database will have the facility to incorporate new data/information. Along with the disease information this database will also provide facilities such as :
    Data Searching System Data Retrieval System
    Data Analysis System Data Editing System
    Data Comparison System Pair Wise Alignment
    Multiple sequence alignment Phylogenetic analysis

    It is to be noted that extra features will be provided for the help of the user and to facilitate the analysis of the database. For the use of every analysis, software with instructions will be created.

  2. LIVESTOCK DATABASE :A livestock database containing livestock population has been created at Bioinformatics Centre. This database contains district level information of livestock population for the census years 1997 and 2003 and statewise information was included on almost all the parameters for the period 1951 – 2003. This database will help in selecting the economically viable livestock to be propagated in the population taking into account genetic profile by using microarray technologies. The disease profile of livestock will help us in developing suitable and economic therapy for the livestock and will open the new gate for drug discovery process by creating drug discovery model through sequencing or microarray technology.
