Malay Kumar Basu
Malay Kumar Basu has M.Sc. degree in Zoology and M.Tech degree in Biotechnology. Currently, He is a graduate student in Molecular Biology in Centre for Cellular and Molecular biology, India where he is trying to give finishing touches to his thesis on “The cold adaptation in Antarctic bacteria”. He is an autodidact, likes to play around with computers in his spare time and started his bioinformatics work around a year back.

His first project, on an interface for bioinformatics services on web called “SeWeR”, was a success as judged by the popularity which bolstered his confidence to more ambitious work in computational geometry. This led to the creation of “Pastel”, a library in Perl to generate Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). He wrote Pastel to act as a base to write “BioSVG”, a set of Perl modules to generate SVG for biological data. As a prototype he wrote “Savvy” to draw plasmid map in SVG using BioSVG and currently he is working to finish Pastel and BioSVG.
