The Department of Science and Technology has contracted with the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research for CHPC to establish and host the Bioinformatics Support Platform (BSP). This contract of the BSP was based on a proposal submitted and approved by DST to expand from the pilot project (which was funded in 2013/14 financial year) into a national platform, with the possibility of extending it into a national institute of applied bioinformatics/computational biology. The BSP is overseen by a steering committee as well as two subcommittees for Services and Training respectively.
