My research interests are concerned with various aspects of Bioinformatics / Computational Biology:
* Functional Genomics:
Studying the mitochondrial genomics and evolutionary selection forces shaping genes and genomes and the in-silico
predictions of these forces; Plant genomics, Identification and analyses of SNPs, repair genes, proteins, and pathways. Genetic association studies. Frameshift mutations and their functional consequences. Computational studies on neurological disorders.
* Systems Biology:
PPIs, and other kind of interactions, Modelling of biological systems, and their structural, functional and evolutionary implications and applications. Association studies of various repair entities with special relevance to human disease. System level understanding of Alzheimer's disease.
* Molecular Evolution:
Inferring evolutionary relationships and evolutionary dynamics: biological, statistical and computational aspects;
Mitochondrial Gene Rearrangements; Codon Usage Analysis-Implications and Applications.
* Data Mining:
Patterns in Biosequences, Restriction Endonucleases and their structural, functional and evolutionary studies, Mining biological data for meaningful information.
* Structural Bioinformatics:
Molecular Modeling, Simulations, CADD and Applications.
* MicroRNAs and MicroArrays
