Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between the Ministry of AYUSH and Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) for cooperation in research, education and interdisciplinary sciences that integrate/co-opt traditional systems of medicine and modern science. Moreover, a Working Group of CSIR-AYUSH Ministry has been formed to take this cooperation forward. Prior to this, CSIR jointly with Department of AYUSH (now Ministry) had developed the Traditional Knowledge Digital Library (TKDL), a globally recognized proprietary database on Indian systems of medicine for preventing biopiracy and misappropriation of our traditional knowledge. Also, the constituent laboratories of CSIR with councils/institutes of the Ministry of AYUSH have also supported each other in the development of improved varieties and captive cultivation of the medicinal plants including rare, engendered and threatened (RET) species, Botanical Reference Standards and Pharmacopoeial standards, and Ayurgenomics, among others.
