The Institute is being constructed on a 30-acre plot of land, with academic blocks, student and faculty housing, guest houses and a conference centre.
An interim facility of about 120,000 sq. ft. of floor space, constructed on the upper storey of an adjacent infectious diseases hospital, has become functional, with laboratories, equipment (including flow-cell sequencers, whole-genome genotyping and gene expression platforms, array CGH platforms, high-end computing platforms, etc.), bio-banking facility, office space and class rooms.
Cell Biology Facilities
We have a state of the art tissue culture facility covering approximately 300sqft area with separate module of 100sqft "restricted-entry" sterile cell culture area. The facility is well equipped with all necessary equipment and gadgets needed for the primary culture of human tissues and maintenance of human and animal cell lines which includes bio-safety cabinets, CO2 incubators, digital water baths, cell counters, fluorescence microscopes (both inverted and regular) with documentation system, liquid nitrogen bio-repositories, freezers, chromatography refrigerators, sonicator-tissue homogenizer with sound abatement chamber and high-speed refrigerated centrifuges.
We are also in the process of setting up a separate bacterial culture facility for cloning and expression of recombinant genes. This facility equipped with culture hood, shaker incubator, water bath, high speed centrifuges will be functioning soon. Besides, we are planning to set up facilities for protein expression, Western blotting along with dark room facility.
Sequencing and genotyping facilities
Automated sequencers for Sanger sequencing
Real-time PCR system
