About the Initiative The unfolding epidemic of COVID-19 has been spreading through the country. IICB has historically responded to the diseases affecting Indians since the era of Prof. JC Ray. IICB made significant contributions in Kala azar (parasitic disease) and cholera (bacterial disease) at the right time. We now take endeavors to responsibly respond to the viral diseases of modern times. To begin with, we developed this webresource that can help both the public a as well as the R&D community in the country and the world regarding the unfolding of COVID-19 epidemic.

CSIR-Indian Institute Of Chemical Biology (CSIR-IICB) has organised a Skill Development Programme for the healthcare workers and Research Fellows to train the workforce inusing Real Time PCR technique.


Covid-19 Serology Testing @ IICB [From 24th to 26th Aug,2020]


CSIR-IICB joined hands with Indian Army to fight COVID-19.
On request from them, a Real Time PCR instrument was commissioned at Command Hospital Kolkata for COVID-19 testing from Dr. Arun Bandyopadhyay's lab.

CSIR-IICB distributed 5000 bottles of hand sanitizers.

Structure of COVID-19 Proteins

Catalogue of various targetable proteins.

Modeling the epidemic

Clinical & epidemiological features of COVID-19.

Environmental factors & epidemic

Fatality vs temperature correlation for COVID-19.


Non-structural proteins of novel Corononavirus or SARS-CoV2 virus play a major role in its survival as well as virulence power. Here, we provide a detailed overview of the SARS-CoV2 non-structural proteins (NSPs)including primary and secondary structural information etc.

Dengue & COVID-19 infection

The global severity maps of ongoing dengue epidemic and COVID-19 pandemic do not overlap.

Envisaged to decipher the genomic variability of SARS-­‐COV2 virus

Genomic variability of SARS-­‐COV2 virus specifically extracted from patients of Kolkata and West Bengal
