About IBIN

The Indian Bioresource Information Network (IBIN) was conceived by the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), as a single digital window that brings together all the available databases and information on the bio-resources and biodiversity of the country into one platform. The idea, though was conceived during 2006, had a long history and emerged as a logical culmination of the programmes undertaken by the DBT till then towards compiling information on bioresources and mapping biodiversity of the country.
The IBIN project is carried out in three phases:

  • IBIN Phase - I:  Launch of IBIN website (www.ibin.co.in)
  • IBIN Phase- II: Launch of IBIN Portal (www.ibin.gov.in)
  • IBIN Phase-III: Launch of IBIN Geo-portal (www.betaibin.iirs.gov.in)
The IBIN consists of two core nodes – Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), Dehradun and University of Agricultural Sciences (UAS), Bengaluru with ten data partners (data nodes), known as Bio-resource Information Centres (BRICs).
