Index. "Bioinformatics is the development and use of computational and mathematical methods for acquiring, storing, analysing and interpreting biological data to solve biological questions.
Today's biological research generates a huge quantity of data. This is growing exponentially with a shift in emphasis from individual biomolecules, to analysis of how they interact in complex networks which control the developmental and physiological processes of whole biological systems, and research into how this relates to human health.
This transition has increased the importance of bioinformatics and raises key challenges which make it imperative that computer scientists(less)
In the early days of industrialization, Indian employers essentially dictated the type of industrial relations they desired, which led to the exploitative employment practices. Today, Industrial relations in India stand regulated by the state.
The directive principles of state policy place upon the government the responsibility of securing, by legislation or economic measures, or any other way, to all workers, industrial or otherwise, work, living wages, conditions of work ensuring a decent standard of life. There is a direct linkage between Industrial Discipline, the Industrial Relations and Industrial Productivity.
Indiscipline, per se, is at times cause for poor Industrial Relations and at times effect of poor Industrial Relations. In either case, it hampers Industrial peace and harmony, which is the prerequisite not only(less)
It was there that he first encountered his fiery and anarchic mentor Chef Kishen, under whose supervision he was guided towards the heady spheres of women and food. Amidst the turmoil that ravaged the Valley and the thwarted sexual yearnings that filled his days, Kip learned to prepare a host of delectable dishes—from rogan josh to tiramisu.
Months passed, and though a Sikh, Kip felt secure in his allegiance to India, the right side of the interminable conflict. But one day, a Pakistani ‘terrorist’ with long, flowing hair was swept up on the banks of the river, and everything changed.
Shuttling between the present and the past, Chef exults in culinary delights even(less)

It is narrated from the perspective of two comparative greenhorns: Rahul Banerjee, who, on a sudden impulse, resigns a stable, albeit predictable, job with a multinational company to start a market research agency of his own in partnership with two relative (and, as subsequent events reveal, rather weird) strangers; and the other, an unnamed 'I', who, as a junior executive in another multinational firm, finds himself constantly blundering into situations that his business school education had not prepared him for. While a series of bizarre experiences stretch their talent and fortitude to breaking point and force them to unlearn all the tenets of management that they'd imbibed in business school, they manage to muddle through in the end by adhering to a simple life-lesson: not to take oneself too seriously.
