Profile Summary
My research uses Molecular Genetics and computational biology approaches to understand the complexities of the inherited genetic diseases, their characterization at molecular level and strategies for control and prevention. I am also interested in infectious diseases, causative microbes and corresponding immune responses by the host. My research group also works on application of Bioinformatics and Computational biology approaches to analyze and interpret the vast amount of genomic data available on public databases and utilization of this data for its full potential to progress our scientific understanding focused on human health and disease.
