Dr Sridhar Sivasubbu, Scientist at the Institute for Genomics and Integrative Biology (IGIB), New Delhi, and his lab are deeply involved in human genome sequencing, which helps in use of personal genomes for precision medicine in humans.

They are undertaking an effort that was first launched in the United States in the 1980s, where the world’s biggest collaborative project in biology - the Human Genome Project (HGP) - was conceived. In 2003, the project was declared complete after the sequencing of the human genome, which has benefits in molecular medicine, energy and forensics. In an interview to Deccan Herald’s G N Prashanth, Dr Sivasubbu outlines IGIB’s and India’s journey in genome sequencing.
