Bioinformatics is the first and foremost of Biological Science. It is considered as the application of Information Technology to the Management of Biological data. It is a fast evolving scientific discipline. The public data bases and their storage are growing exponentially. The researcher is highly benefited with these information using the computer tools and the websites. This book deals with many of the important data bases, computer tools and the websites. Further, the book provides the students with a genuinely Indian perspective on the principles and applications of Bioinformatics in a style which combines academic rigour with practical insight. This book is an essential reading for all introductory courses in Bioinformatics at degree, post-graduate and professional levels.

The subject is covered in six parts in an easy and understandable way:
– A brief understanding of Biotechnology and Microbiology.
– Fundamentals of Biotechnology.
– Biological information on the web.
– Tools for Bioinformatics.
– Data analysis, data mining and data visualizing.
– Biotech / Bioinformatic activities in India.
