About this book

This book which is the second edition of Your Passport to a Career in Bioinformatics, is intended for students who plan to work in bioinformatics. In addition to addressing the opportunities and challenges faced by today’s bioinformatics community, it demonstrates how bioinformatics is currently transitioning from research to vocation and avocation. Further, it extols the virtues of in silico for bioinformatics predictions, as it helps wet-lab biologists reduce the time needed for experiments.

In turn, the book addresses career prospects and the Ten Commandments for becoming a bioinformatics professional; bioinformatics for developing countries; bioinformatics for schools; bioinformatics for markets; and the knowns and unknowns of bioinformatics. It also explores how bioinformatics interacts with various fields in terms of three Cs: consistency, continuity, and credibility.


About the authors

Dr. Prashanth N Suravajhala is currently working as a Senior Scientist at Birla Institute of Scientific Research (BISR), Jaipur. Previously, he has obtained a Ph.D. in Systems Biology. He has been involved in various projects specific to immunomodulatory/metabolic diseases and cancer biology. He has identified candidate genes using in silico approaches and provided a standard classification and scoring scheme for characterizing hypothetical proteins in vitro, specifically those that are targeted to mitochondria. More recently, his interests have expanded to transcriptomic profiling, functional proteomics and molecular genetics of cancer/diseasome approaches linked to evolutionary aspects in understanding functional aspects of regulatory genes, epigenomic profiling, miRNAs, and long non-coding RNAs. He is a founder of Bioclues.org, a not-for-profit organization through which he mentors bioinformatics graduates.
