About the CEG

Efficient plant breeding requires high-throughput allele determination at low cost for better prediction of an individual’s phenotype from its genotype. This is the primary reason for the establishment of ICRISAT’s Center of Excellence in Genomics (CEG). To cater the needs of molecular breeding community, the CEG has three main components i.e. applied genomics research and sequencing, high quality marker genotyping services and capacity building in modern genomics and molecular breeding.

Director's note CEG Team

Genomics can revolutionize breeding and research, but for this to become a reality, scientists must be allowed to focus on the research problem, and not on the technology. The CEG is enabling this possible by making the highly sophisticated equipment required for this research available to scientists.

By offering genotyping and sequencing service on cost-to-cost basis, coupled with support in data analysis and interpretation, CEG is committed to enhance adoption of genomics in breeding programmes to increase yield.
