India pledges $20 million for genomics:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Indian health ministry is to invest $20 million over the next five years in genomics research. Microbial genomics, molecular epidemiology, neurogenetics and pharmacogenetics are among the research topics covered in the more than 20 (of a potential 110) projects approved by the country's medical research council, the British Medical Journal reports. The initiative has been criticised for forcing cuts in other priority areas. While the overall budget for public health and R&D in 2001-02 is up by $25.5 million, funding for India's malaria and leprosy programmes has been cut by $3.5m and $1.5, respectively.
