Our Vision

"Genome to Drug" (Dhanvantari) envisages delivering a drug molecule to society from genomic / proteomic information. It consists of mainly three stages:

(1) interpreting the language of genomic DNA and identifying a druggable protein coding gene (Chemgenome) for a disease / disorder,

(2) determining the three dimensional structure of the protein target ( Bhageerath) and

(3) creating a small molecule (drug) that can bind with high affinity and specificity to the Protein/DNA target but with least toxicity to humans (Sanjeevini).
