A children’s science book is born: When an animal lover kid meets Genomics

Samatha Mathew

"Genome Jaunts: Seeing animals through the lens of genomics" emerged from a collaboration between an animal enthusiast teenager, a genomics scientist, and a young researcher. This unique science book connects animal behaviour to genetics, guided by the teenager's questions, leading to a refreshing non-anthropocentric perspective, ultimately published by World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF)-India to inspire young minds in exploring science and promoting wildlife conservation.

    DEI Infographic by IndiaBioscience: ‘Tenets of our Laboratory’


    DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) is not a ‘one size fits all’ plan. While it is encouraging to observe DEI in science in India becoming a part of open and honest conversations, our narratives and depictions of DEI are largely driven by dominant global conversations. These narratives clearly do not completely capture the complexity of DEI in India, and therefore appear largely performative when put into practice. This infographic by IndiaBioscience aims to capture the essence of DEI in India, through vivid and thought-provoking illustrations and DEI statements.
