    The newly developed facility of “The Biome” at Salt Lake City Sector 1 Kolkata has paved a new area of Bioinformatics Research. The main focus areas of research in Bioinformatics currently is focused but not restricted to the following :
    (A) Next Generation Sequencing Data Analyses :
    Next Generation sequencing has resulted in the ushering of a new era into bioinformatics research – due to its huge volume of data that is generated out of a single cycle of experiments. The analyst at The Biome has taken up the challenge head on and has made themselves at par with leading research labs around the world.

    Our specializations include : data analyses and annotation of genome and transcriptome analyses experiments as well as subsequent pathway analyses including analyses of differential gene expression patterns.
    (B) The Rare Infectious Disease Initiative :
    The recent outbreak of Ebola has prompted the disease research team of The Biome to undertake structural and interactomic analyses experiments involving proteins encoded by the Ebola Genome.
    (C) The Database Development Initiative :
    The database development team of the Biome is currently involved in preparing a database on Drought and Salinity Stress associated microRNAs in crop plants of the Indian subcontinent.

    Inhouse Software And Tools Developed
    (A) Motdet :
    A tool for detection of conserved residues in amino acid and nucleic acid sequences using clustering and neighbor joining methods with a background position specific scoring matrix. Written and executed in cgi – PERL.
    (B) Text Miner :
    A web based application for the mining of bibliographic data using a combination of text based keywords. The application provides the user with a keyword based search interface and a suggestive list of keywords. It then searches across major bibliographic databases and journal homepages.
