The National Institute of Biomedical Genomics (NIBMG) has been established as an autonomous institution by the Government of India, under the aegis of the Department of Biotechnology. This is the first institution in India explicitly devoted to research, training, translation & service and capacity-building in Biomedical Genomics. It is located in Kalyani, West Bengal, India, near Kolkata.
The research focus of the institute is to understand the molecular basis of disease using genomics and integrative biology, as well as functionalization of genomic leads. Such knowledge is translated for enhanced prediction, prevention and cure and also provides us with the insight into mechanism of disease development and progression. NIBMG laboratories are equipped with high end instruments and state of art facilities. The huge 30 acre campus of the Institute has academic blocks, student and faculty housing, guest houses, conference centre and other facilities.
