The minister also laid the foundation stone for a new skill training and lecture hall complex on the occasion.
The Next Generation Sequencing Facility promises to sequence up to 30 human genomes in a day and help researchers to individually tag genomes of up to 80,000 cells in eight minutes.
The running cost of NGS facility NovaSeq Sequencer is Rs 30 lakh.
