My job here

I'm a Short-term Research Worker here interested in Structural & Systems Biology. I'm currently working on the TIM barrel (α / β)8 fold - probabaly the most functionally versatile protein scaffold, adopted by enzymes catalyzing a wide variety of reactions. This, & the lack of any substantial sequence homology between the proteins belonging to this fold family motivate work in the direction of deciphering the structural principles common to these proteins.

Interests

I'm an interested outsider to
  • Computaional Geometry
  • Bioinspired Computing
  • Computational Origami

Talks n Articles

  • An article my colleague and I wrote proposing a theory for caricinogenesis, considering it as an evolving disease.
  • Here's a talk I gave in the lab on Cancer Systems

I'm a...

Final year student of Ind. Biotechnology (B.Tech) at the Centre for Biotechnology, Anna University, Chennai. At our centre, I worked with Prof. Gautam at the Computational Biology Lab during the final few projects. I joined the Chandra Lab at IISc for working at my under-graduate thesis. My homepage houses more about my bio, scientific inspirations & pursuits. Here's My Resume.
