Technological advances in the field of molecular biology has led to an exponential surge in the biological information generated by the scientific community. This includes high throughput or ‘Big Data’ as well as the ‘gold-standard’ and highly precise experimental data published in research articles. Transformation of this data into knowledge requires precise cataloguing, integration, interpretation and visualization. Biocuration and database development provides the necessary platform and tools for the assimilation of such experimental data. Thus, biological databases and the underlying biocuration processes are critical for the advancements of biological sciences. In India, several research groups are involved in building and maintaining biological databases in plant as well as animal science. The current symposium aims to bring together biocurators and database developers from diverse yet interrelated disciplines and provide a forum for discussion, collaboration and foster a sense of community in this very active and growing area of research.

It is our great pleasure to announce that the National Symposium on Database Development and Biocuration (NSDDB) will be held for the first time from April 6-7, 2018, at University of Delhi South Campus, New Delhi, India.


The symposium is an eye opener and an inspiration. ....
