Scientists have released high-quality sequencing of Indian Cobra genome. This unlocks the secret code of its 'venome-ome' that carries 139 genes, out of which 19 are linked to venom-specific toxins.

50,00,000 people worldwide are bitten by venomous snakes each year.
4,00,000 get amputations.
1,00,000 die. Out of that, 46% die in India alone due to bites of Indian cobra, Russell's Viper, Saw-Scaled and Common Krait.

This genome sequencing might save 1000s of lives!
