Genome Valley is an Indian high-technology business district spread across 600 km² in Hyderabad, India. Centered across the suburbs Shamirpet, Medchal, Uppal, Patancheru, Jeedimetla, Gachibowli and Keesara, the Valley has developed as a cluster for Biomedical research, training and manufacturing.[2][3][4]

Genome valley was commissioned in 1999 as S. P. Biotech Park in a public-private partnership with Bharat Biotech International, and its founder Krishna Ella, alongside private infrastructure companies such as Shapoorji Pallonji Group and ICICI Bank.[5] In 2009, U.S. based infrastructure giant Alexandria Real Estate Equities has announced its plans to invest in the bio-cluster, which led to the Alexandria Knowledge Park SEZ.[6] The biocluster at Shamirpet holds Certification mark by the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the European Union.[7]

The IKP Knowledge Park spread over 200 acres in Turakapally, is an initiative of ICICI Bank with five "innovation corridors" - a first of its kind knowledge-nurturing centre for Indian companies and a knowledge gateway for multinational companies".[8] The first phase of Innovation Corridor I, comprising 10 laboratories, around 3,000 ft² (300 m²) each, is operational and fully occupied. The second phase of Innovation Corridor I, comprising 16 laboratory modules of 1,700 ft² (170 m²) each, is ready for operation.

The Alexandria Knowledge Park spread over 300 acres in Turakapally, accommodates advance research and development infrastructure in multiple formats like multi-tenanted research buildings, incubation facilities, build-to-suit blocks and industrial plots. The Park has been developed in two phases. Phase I covers approximately 145 acres and Phase II covers approximately 162 acres of land. The Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation, SEZ,[9] the Lonza Group, SEZ, and[10] Alexandria SEZ, are the designated special economic zones of the Valley.[11]
