About this book

This book highlights the genomic findings, observations, and analysis of DNA/RNA sequences and protein structure of the dreadful virus of this decade- COVID-19. The Corona group of viruses though known species, the strain that caused the Pandemic of 2019  is a completely new strain, belonging to the same corona family with a novel genetic make-up. This makes it a new pathogen which is causing the current outbreak leaving the global scientific community clueless of any therapeutic breakthrough. NCOV enjoys life threatening pathogenicity with mysterious genetic annotations. This book details and offers insights into its viral genetic arrangement, Virulence factors, probable mutations leading to the evolution of this new strain and more.  It contains chapters on Virus evolutionary status and Genetic makeup leading to its pathogenicity which can be a new insight in understanding the nature of this clever microorganism and can pave way to the development of new drugs and Vaccines or a novel diagnostic approach for the early prognosis of the disease.  A dedicated chapter on annotation of NCOV-19 virulence genes, translation of the genes to protein product, annotation of the antigenic sites on these proteins is also included. In all, this brief  is a complete genomic annotation insight of NCOV-19 using AI, Data analytics and Bioinformatics analysis. In the current situation, this book is  an extensive preliminary resource for Medical practitioners, Researchers, Academicians, Scientists, Biochemists, Bioinformaticians and other professionals interested in understanding the genetics of Novel Coronavirus 19, the best possible drug targets, ideal vaccine candidates and novel prognostic and diagnostic biomarkers.

Prof. Ajit K. Saxena has received his Ph.D. from Department of Anatomy in Cyotgenetics from Institute of Medical Sciences, B.H.U. in the year of 1990. During his Ph.D. he studied how anticancer drugs cause interference with normal development of the foetus and with special reference to the cause of abnormality during differentiation of male gonads which lead infertility including congenital anomalies. After receiving his Ph.D. degree he joined NIH funded Indo US project at AIIMS New Delhi; where he identified the role of novel antigen IL6 as a signal traducing agent in human glioblastoma. He also worked in various renowned Institutions of India and abroad including C.C.M.B., C.D.R.I., A.M.C., B.P.K.I.H.S. (Dharan, Nepal) and B.H.U.,Varanasi. Currently, he is working as a Professor and Head in the Department of Pathology/Lab Medicine specialized in Clinical Genetics in All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Patna. He also possess administrative responsibilities as Head of the Department in prestigious institutions of India & abroad. In addition he has also served his duties of Scientific Advisor to the Government. His research interest includes study of Gene Polymorphism in Congenital Neural Tube Defects/ Tumor Biology/Infertility and Cytokines gene expression in chronic wounds and hypertrophic scars. Currently, his research interest includes role of stem cells in translational research. Of course, Dr Saxena published more than 100 articles in peer reviewed journals of international reputes with high citations. Based on his research and fellowship training, he has received several Awards and Honours, such as Gold Medal Award, Confer ‘Vivek Ratan Award’ and Millennium Award, Health Care Excellence Award, Life Time Achievement Awards (three times). Besides his research, teaching and administration he has also guided postgraduate (Ph.D,MD,MS, MTech) students. He is serving as an editorial member of various reputed journals and reviewer for several government funded project and research papers.
