Creation of custom-designed databases and Software

Choosing a correct database for analyzing data is very crucial. Our team at Shodhaka is specialized in data collection and development of databases and tools for life science researchers. Our novel tissue specific database is the result of one such research (Bajpai et al. MGEx-Udb: A Mammalian Uterus Database for Expression-Based Cataloguing of Genes across Conditions, Including Endometriosis and Cervical Cancer PLOS One, [2012], 7(5), e36776). Development of a portal for majority of bioinformatics resources as a guide for biologists is the result of our original research (www.startbioinfo.com).
