History of Selaginella bryopteris

"The application of computational and statistical techniques to biological data processing and analysis, particularly in genomics"

In Hindu mythology, Sanjeevani is a magical herb which has the power to cure any malady. It is believed that medicines prepared from this herb can even revive a dead person. This herb is mentioned in the Ramayana when, during the battle with Ravana, Lakshmana was wounded and was nearly killed by Ravana's son Indrajit. Hanuman was called upon to fetch this herb from the mountDronagiri in the Himalayas. Upon reaching mount Sumeru, Hanuman was unable to identify the herb and decided to lift the entire mountain and brought it to the battle-field.

Novel era of Biosciences the application such as Bioinformatics,Genomics,Proteomics work as Snjeevani for mankind.The Approach of Drug Development is now diverted on Insilico Based Analysis .
