iCROWD - Indian Collaborative Research Consortium on Wilson Disease

Indian Collaborative Research Consortium on Wilson Disease
The iCROWD consortium aims at using cutting edge genomics technology to enable identification of genetic variations in diseases and help clinicians arrive at a precise diagnosis for rare genetic diseases. 

Apart from working closely with clinicians, we aim to foster education, awareness and the widespread adoption of genomic technology in clinical settings, in addition to creating and disseminating the highest standards of genomic data generation and interpretation. 

We invite you and your Department/Institute to be part of this ongoing collaborative effort.

GUaRDIAN : Intergrating Personalised and Precision Medicine

CSIR Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (CSIR-IGIB) New Delhi has initiated a unique programme on this front, pioneering the application of genomics for Precision Medicine in clinics in India.

One of the programmes we have initiated is Genomics for Understanding Rare Disease, India Alliance Network (GUaRDIAN), which is a large-scale collaborative network of clinicians from around India trying to integrate genomics in clinical practice, with the a singular focus to elucidate the genetic structure of rare genetic diseases in India.
