Sharing details of the paper on, ‘Genome-wide analysis correlates Ayurveda Prakriti’, published in Nature journal, Ch. Mohan Rao, director of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR)- Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) said at a news conference here on Wednesday, “A research team led by CCMB took up the challenge to find out the correlation between Ayurvedic Prakriti classification and genetic diversity. Interestingly, although we had individuals from different ancestries and communities, they all got classified into these three classifications. This was a sign that there was real science behind this Ayurvedic classification….
