• i-DHANS is a first of its kind database for healthy aging Indian gene sequences

  • It provides vital infomation on the Indian aging alleles that help to distinguish disease associated mutations

  • A total of 1500 control participants were analysed and 94 healthy aging individuals were selected with the mean age of 80 years without any medications. These subjects were tested clinically negative for the following: (a) Infection (b) Cardiovascular disease (c) Hypertension (d) Diabetes mellitus (e) Cancer (f) Brain-related disorders

  • All the participants were analyzed using whole exome sequencing and the data were filtered and compiled

  • This study is partially funded by Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance

  • We are interested in sequencing additional 500 healthy aging Indians free of cost. If you and your family members are interested in participating, please contact: dhan@instem.res.in
