BTISNET - Sub-Distributed Information Centre
  TAMIL NADU AGRICULTURAL UNIVERSITY, COIMBATORE
 
  The Distributed Information Sub Centre (DISC) housed at Centre for Plant Molecular Biology, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University is functioning with the financial support of DBT since 1989. It is actively engaged in educational and research activities of biotechnology and bioinformatics.
  • The internet connectivity in the bioinformatics lab has been upgraded to 2 mbps for the benefit of scientists and students
  • Organized 29 bioinformatics training programs since inception
 
Major research activities    
  • Development of genetically modified plants in rice (drought and salinity tolerance), maize (low phytate), brinjal (shoot and fruit borer resistant), cotton, banana, papaya, ground nut and soybean for both biotic and abiotic stresses
  • Marker assisted selection for blast, bacterial leaf blight and gall midge resistance genes in rice through functional markers
  • QTL mapping and marker aided selection for drought tolerance in rice and cotton
  • Characterization of root proteome of rice for water stress
  • Cloning and characterization of abiotic stress inducible promoters from rice
  • Development of agriculturally important databases
  • Development of sequence analysis tools
