What we do?

Statistics, Bioinformatics and Data Management (SBDM) is a cross-cutting theme of ICRISAT with a mandate to provide high quality data support to ICRISAT researchers. Main focus areas of SBDM are providing advanced data analytical solutions to ICRISAT and partnering NARS. SBDM provides research data analytic solutions in solving complex research problems in the fields of biometrics, statistics and bioinformatics. SBDM theme is a group of statisticians, bioinformatics experts and data programmers working together to ensure a strong data ecosystem in ICRISAT.

Bioinformatics & Statistical Genomics

The theme provides advanced computational and bioinformatics support includes a range of bioinformatics analysis. Expertise includes molecular marker analysis, genetic linkage map construction, genome visualization, imputation, allele discovery for desired traits using (GWAS), QTL/linkage mapping, performing rapid generation selection and estimating GEBVs by using genomic selection (GS), understanding population structure and etc.

Efficient Experiments and Advanced Data Analysis

The theme has excellent expertise in generating efficient and statistically sound experimental designs for generating complex agricultural experiments. Further, performing various analysis including but not limited to multi-site GxE analysis, spatial analysis of trials. It is also involved in providing on-farm trial management support and statistics consultancy to researchers and scholars.

Data Management & Digitalization of Breeding Programs

Strong Data Management support is another key activity of SBDM which includes data compilation, cleaning, and curation of data, developing and maintaining data sharing repositories through open sources and propriety technologies. This theme is involved in providing supports to ICRISAT breeders and other scientists in digitalizing breeding activities by introducing modern databases and modern ways of data capture.
