SECTORIAL ANALYSISIndias biotechnology sector is at a crossroads. On the one hand, it must find affordable solutions to the pressing national needs in agriculture, health and energy, but on the other, it must be competitive enough to take advantage of the lucrative international markets. The Indian Government established an independent Department of Biotechnology (DBT) in the Ministry of Science and Technology as early as 1986, much before biotechnology became a buzzword. Government funding to the S&T sector increased by eight times from the 8th Five-Year Plan to the 11th Five-Year Plan and support to the life sciences sector steadily increased by 16 times in the same period As a result, a firmer foundation of life sciences and biotechnology has been created over the years in public-funded institutions, over which a strong edifice of innovation and enterprise could be built now. Fiscal incentives include relaxed price controls for drugs, subsidies on capital limits, and tax holidays for R&D spending. Several State Governments (e.g. Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala and Gujarat) have come up with added financial (e.g. tax concessions) and policy incentives (biotech parks, incubators of their own) to spur investment in biotechnology. DBT and other organizations have proactively taken up a number of initiatives in creating trained human resource, institutional infrastructure (e.g. microbial culture collections, cell and tissue lines, gene banks, laboratory animals, facilities for oligonucleotide synthesis, etc.) and a strong research base in the country in areas relating to agriculture and forestry, human health, animal productivity, environmental safety and industrial production.PlanTotal S&T ( in crore)DBT (in crore)

Bio informatics

Bioinformatics was applied in the creation and maintenance of a database to store biological information at the beginning of the "genomic revolution", such as nucleotide and amino acid sequences. Development of this type of database involved not only design issues but the development of complex interfaces whereby researchers could both access existing data as well as submit new or revised data.
