Research Interest

  • Proteomics describes the study and characterization of complete set of proteins present in a cell, organ or organism at a given time. My laboratory is using high throughput proteomic techniques such as two-dimensional difference in gel electrophoresis, mass spectrometry and protein microarray etc. for biomarker discovery in cancer & tropical diseases of India such as malaria, to study protein-protein interactions and drug target discovery. Information obtained from research program is also used for in silico studies and computing models to enhance our understanding in systems approach.
