About the book: Gopalasamudram Narayana Ramachandran is known as the “father of Molecular Biophysics in India”. His work is preeminent in the study of protein structures. His discovery has laid the foundation for initiating a new field of study on conformations of macromolecules. He has left a permanent imprint with the “Ramachandran Phi-Psi Plot” or the “Ramachandran diagram”. It has become a standard description in every modern publication on protein structures. This book is the reprint of the original published by Adenine Press in 1998. It presents a biographical sketch of this exceptional luminary and traces his brilliant scientific career along with the setbacks and triumphs.
