The Bureau is providing contract services for molecular identification and DNA fingerprinting services to the entrepreneurs/individuals for the microbial strains registered and to be registered as biopesticides. This identification service helps Central Insecticide Board in authentication of the product for farmers and is significantly cutting the time taken for registration of biopesticides by the CIB&RC. Till now, the Bureau has identified and developed DNA fingerprints for about 500 strains. The rates for the services are:
