To enable access by the student and scientific community from across the country, the Supercomputing Facility at IIT Delhi is connected to Biogrid-India (a Virtual Private Network of The Department of biotechnology, Govt. of India). Twelve institutes of India on VPN nodes are actively pursuing Bioinformatics activities such as Human Resource Development, R&D activities in Bioinformatics besides dissemination of Biotechnology information to researchers in the country. The nodes are interconnected through 2mbps dedicated Leased Circuit Line at each location and 4Mbps Internet bandwidth shared from the central server by all the nodes It is envisioned that the Biogrid will span all the 60 + Bioinformatics Centers of the Department of Biotechnology with GBPS bandwidth and at least 10 teraflops of computer capacity soon.

Pro-active policies and conducive environment to researchers, entrepreneurs and Industry will go a long way in steering India towards leadership in the area of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
