The World of Genes is a concise, yet comprehensive and convincing, book for not just beginners, but anybody who wants to take a peek into the most happening field of biotechnology. At a time when genetics is conquering new frontiers and the scientific community is engrossed like never before in eliminating human suffering due to diseases, inheritance and accidents, this innovative book traces the brief history of genetics, from Watson and Crick, and summarises what biotechnology, the buzzword across the globe, is all about. Terms still abegging acceptable levels of currency — like bioinformatics, biomathematics and biostatistics — are suitably explained in a most straightforward manner. Due attention has been given to provide useful info on where biology meets information technology. By a modest reckoning, it is a bestseller in the making.

Prashanth Suravajhala is a Master in Biotechnology from Guru Ghasidas University, Bilaspur, India. Currently he is a PhD student at Department of Life Sciences, Roskilde University Centre, Denmark. As a computational biologist, he has been a freelancer for the past few years. He administers biospot.org, an educative blog that allows biologists and the laymen to peg views and thoughts on the bio-news. Bioinformatics and computational biology fascinates Suravajhala and like many enthusiasts of his generation, he would like to see India a spearhead in this booming field. He presents this iota of lettering to undergraduates who want to practise computational biology as a science and what and how of a position they could play as a computational biologist or a bioinformaticist in the form of cartoons.
