CSIR safe food initiative for a new India......
To provide safe and nutritious food for all, a series of stakeholder dialogues initiated by CSIR-IITR led to the identification of gaps where technological interventions are required. Several major industries and regulatory agencies including FSSAI, BIS and Export Council of India were consulted during the formulation of the CSIR mission mode programme to meet the unmet needs of the farmers, industries, consumers and regulatory agencies. CSIR will be delivering technological solutions for food safety from "seed to stomach" through this "Food and Consumer Safety Solutions (FOCUS)" mission mode programme.
The single cell gel electrophoresis or comet assay is one such state-of-the-art technique for quantitating DNA damage and repair in vivo and in vitro in any eukaryotic cell and some prokaryotic cells. This technique is rapid, non-invasive, sensitive, visual and inexpensive as compared to the conventional techniques and is a powerful tool to study factors modifying mutagenicity and carcinogenicity. It has rapidly gained importance in the fields of genetic toxicology and human biomonitoring.

Established in 2011 as an ‘Institution of National Importance’ (interim operations started in June, 2010), the Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research (AcSIR) has adopted the mandate to create and train some of the best of tomorrow’s Science & Technology leaders through a combination of innovative and novel curricula, pedagogy and evaluation. AcSIR’s focus will be on imparting instruction and providing research opportunities in such areas that are not routinely taught in regular academic universities in India.
OASIS will facilitate optimal deployment of staff and allow appropriate utilization of HR. It will help CSIR to plan ahead by capitalizing on its HR-strengths. In the first phase, OASIS will provide secure access to all bonafide and registered Scientists of CSIR and allow them to update their profiles. Interconnectivity among the different modules provides flexibility in query generation.
