Research Interest

  • Computational analysis of transcriptomics data to identify the candidate genes and their gene network dynamics, emphasizing on the adaptation mechanisms triggered in transgressive segregants in response to abiotic stress.
  • Computational structural analysis of macromolecules and their complexes to understand molecular basis of interactions.
  • Databases and Web-applications development.
  • Molecular dynamics simulation studies of Intrinsically disordered proteins to decipher the molecular plasticity and its role in selecting multiple binding partner molecules.
  • Computational estimation of ancestral genomes using gene synteny.
