Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India, has established the 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 is anchored at the National Institute of Plant Genome Research, New Delhi (NIPGR) and serve to facilitate genotyping services with private service providers and then advance 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 is provided by DBT and the facility is being established at NIPGR. Model of the proposed facility would be Public Private Partnership anchored to NIPGR. Operational cost to be earned by running as a PPP model for sustainability as well as to generate revenue and to make itself sustainable within the defined period.
