I studied Bioinformatics for my Masters at the University of Hyderabad (UoHyd), Hyderabad, India. My Bachelors in Technology was in Bioinformatics at the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, India. In my Masters I studied the pathways in Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv in comparison to other known pathways. Then he tried to fill the holes in the pathways by sequence analysis of orthologous genes. This method was tested mainly on the TAG pathway, with confirmation through structure analysis for the presence of multiple putative hole-fillers. After my Masters, I was a Project Assistant at the Center for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics, India. Here I worked on the transcriptome analysis of gut-pathogens in the domestic silk moth (Bombyx mori) and the genome assembly of the wild silk-moth (Bombyx huttoni). At present, I’m a PhD student at Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) on the comparative genomics of two sub-species of Lacertid lizards to detect chromosomal rearrangements under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Martin Schlegel, Prof. Dr. Klaus Henle, Prof. Dr. Peter Stadler, Dr. Rui Faria and Dr. Katja Nowick.
