India is a country with incredible, biological and cultural diversity. Its natural resources attracted to the subcontinent many streams of people at different times, from different directions. This migration brought out a great diversity in human genes and cultures, resulting in a racial admixture of the Indian population. However, till date no database accounting for genetic mutations, abnormalities and variants of genetic diseases specific to the Indian population has been created. We have designed an Indian specific mutation database – BEADS based on SQL and JAVA. It’s easy-to-use web interface will allow a remote user to retrieve (and submit) data on patient-specific mutation spectrum of genetic diseases through interactive web forms. The database will be helpful to the Physicians, Geneticists and other professionals in India as it provides information about the specific mutations pertaining to the Indian population. It will also provide links to other major public databases based on Human genetic disorders, type of mutation, clinical, biochemical data, geographical location and other common mutations.
