Jigsaw Bio Solutions Pvt Ltd., JBS , established in 2007 and based out of Bangalore, offers services in biotechnology and bioinformatics.
Major domains of operation at JBS are -omics, molecular diagnostics and bioprocess engineering. Notable contract services offered in these areas include molecular dynamics simulations on protein structural changes, design of primers/probes for Taqman assay developments and also gene optimization of expression of therapeutic proteins. The IP generated through these services have gone into patent filing by the client- a remarkable mention is that of gene optimization performed for a Bangalore based company has proven to increase fermentation yield by 30 percent in Pichia pastoris expression system
Internal R n D programs focus on discovery of novel biomarkers in disease diagnostics. Malaria biomarkers are validated in collaboration with IISc, ILS via a BIRAC grant. Proof-of-concept is on going for cervical cancer diagnostic biomarker in collaboration with Boston University.
JBS also conducts hands-on-training in bioinformatics tools for students/ BCIL Trainees.
The lab at JBS is equipped with advanced computing facilities and basic -omics facilities to perform in silico research such as sequence analysis, molecular docking and molecular dynamics and supplementary research like real time PCR analyses to support in silico findings
